This is a nice wildlife park in its natural surrounding - no fancy city park. You have Australian animals including Kangaroos to feed. Be aware there are no Koalas. If you don't expect too much than you will be happy.

My friends and I had an amazing time at the Great Ocean Rd Wildlife Park. We were quite lucky because upon our arrival we were greeted by dingos (on leashes of course) at the front door. The dingos were surprisingly friendly and didn't even mind being picked up and cuddled by the guests. In the petting area we got to... More

Really enjoyed visiting the park and meeting the owner who was happy to chat about his vision and the park itself. As others have said, it's not a zoo but that is what makes it such a pleasure. There is a petting area with kangaroos, emus and llamas where we fed the kangaroos and emus but you should be aware... More

Don't waste your money. I was very disappointed with the wildlife park. Although it's supposed to be animals in their natural habitat it would of been nice to see that an effort had been made to mow the grass. The petting area was a waste of time for kids as there was nothing for kids to pat. The llamas ran... More

If you're looking for an over the top tourist attraction with tons of animals in small pens then go elsewhere. This is a family run place where you can interact with emu, kangaroo, and dingos. I was glad they just had a handful of animals to interact with and most of the animals had acres to roam, as it should... More

The Great Ocean Road Wildlife Park is a brilliant experience, especially for non-Australian travellers - a great opportunity to see kangaroos, emus, dingoes and many other animals in a habitat much like in the wild. I was disappointed I had only a limited time and couldn't do justice to the place, but would love to go back and see it... More

A great gem along the Great Ocean Road that you could do under an hour. It is self-paced park starting with the petting area. Then you make your way around a fenced track to see all of the other animals. Some will come to the fence where you can feed them. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It is... More

Stumbled across this lovely wildlife park as we drove the Great Ocean Road. We loved the informal set-up and the ability to feed/stroke and get up close to kangaroos, alpacas, emus. It's a fairly small park but quiet and family run. It doesn't have the commercial feel of a zoo and is great value for money. There are lots of... More

We came upon this park by chance. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! It's a family business and the owners have great ideas and plans for the park. The animals have space to roam and are in good condition. Happy and friendly place. Nice petting area - great for small kids as well. Has nice little cafe with great coffee and pizza from wood... More

I've been to lots of wildlife reserves in Australia and I can tell that this one has some extra love. It's run by a family business and you can tell that they really care. They are really kind, helpful and informative. Going around the reserve you can see that everything is done by them, the boards, the paintings, everything is... More
