Had a wonderful time seeing our native animals up close. Staff are very friendly and obviously love their job - and who wouldn’t? Highly recommended. The bat enclosure is amazing.

The Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park is about an hour outside Sydney. It was a decent place to pet a koala and kangaroos and to walk around and see other native Australia animals, but if you can make it to Cairns, Hartley's Crocodile Adventure is much...More

We called in to this wildlife park on our way to the Central Coast from Sydney. We had been before and enjoyed it. This time we just did the short walk around, starting with the petting zoo section, a few non native animals, then the...More

The website implies that you’ll be driving or walking among free range animals, but it’s just a tiny zoo with a few kangaroos wandering. The staff is nice but again the advertising and price are not consistent.

Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park is not on a public transport route and therefore the closest station is at Gosford, either train or bus. A taxi fare from Gosford is approximately $45 one way, so is pretty expensive. We... More
