The best thing...............getting to hold a koala and it didn't cost any extra.......included in your ticket price. The animals look well cared for, the staff friendly, a nice little café.....plus you can bring your own... More

Amazing experience seeing and even holding a koala, feeding wallabies and kangoeroes and checking out loads of other animals. A beautiful scenic route takes you to this wildlife park, and seems not so well known (was pretty quiet when we were there but was a weekday). Definitely recommend!

Chance to see a variety of animals from close up. Don't forget to buy feed at the counter before you enter, I used most of mine before I had moved through the Kangaroos. Great chance to hold a Koala without causing the Koala discomfort or concern, very well managed in a shady area and without the need to have the... More

We got a recommendation from people we met at a camp ground! The park is amazing!!! For only 17 AUD you get to hold a koala and you can feed kangaroos (their food cost 2 AUD). They really care about their animals. We've been there on a rainy day but we saw most of the animals. We spent quite a... More

First visit. It was so uncrowded, but you could clearly see the care all the birds, marsupials and reptiles receive. An absolute pleasure to visit

Wow! Cuddle with koalas, hand feeding wallabies and kangaroos, as well as exotic birds. This place is small but kept us (including teenagers) busy for 5 non stop hours. This is one of the highlights of the trip right up there with swimming open water with dolphins. Great white sharks cage dive here we come.

We visited on a really hot day. By early afternoon many of the animals were hidden away resting which is fair enough! They were quite active in the morning though. We lined up for quite a while to hold a koala but it was well worth it!

Really fantastic wildlife park. Lots of different animals to see. Make sure you find out when they bring the koala's out for everyone to hold. It really is a fantastic experience and doesn't cost any more. Really great day out

I can't beleive I had not gone here before. I was so impressed. Animals are accessable and very well cared for. Park is so well looked after. It is small enough to get around but big enough for plenty of room for all. Great for the kiddies to run about with paths and rails but not over done. One nice... More
