  • Fun day and staff very knowledgeable so ask away anything is not a problem. Koalas well cared for so what’s not to like. Not often you can this close to the koalas so give it a go.

  • We have had annual membership for the past 8 years. There has been less and less effort going into this place, ever since it stopped being Australian owned. It used to be great - with wild life...

  • Magic! We can touch 🐨 it was a dream thank you !!
  • We have been multiple times now with our child. I highly recommend buying an annual pass if you have children. It becomes very inexpensive, and pays for itself after going a few times. Wide range of animals from Koalas and kangaroos through to birds and platypuses, dogs, dingos and crocs. It is great to be able to go spend time wandering with the animals, and the kangaroo fields are great for the children to be able to pat and feed the kangaroos. They are very tame and behaved every time that I have been. There are sheep dog and eagle shows on if you are there at the right time of day. Also there is a new crocodile exhibit with a glass viewing bubble, which was cool to watch them being fed. Generally the place is tidy and well kept and there are always plenty of staff around looking after the place and the animals. Good day out with the family.
