Brilliant clean, safe, compact place, shade, seating, great talks and presentations. Much cheaper than touristy options and good food at fair prices too. Highly recommended to locals and tourists and needs to be more well known for the natural animal option that it is while still getting close to what you want to see.

Great day with small kids. Indigenous flavour to the wildlife talks is culturally enriching. Great information taught and the chance to get up close to the animals.

We visited with 4 children including 2 teenagers and we all loved it. The bird show was fantastic with birds flying overhead. While disappointed the crocs weren't fed (due to feeding season over as they are resting over winter) the staff talk was still good. We were able yo get close up and get good photos and at the end...

I took my kids here decades ago and I remembered the experience with much joy. I returned the other day with the grand kids and found the park to still hold the wonders for children that it did years ago. Among the attractions are three that stood out for us. You can get to see a baby bilby. ( Just... More

The staff here are very knowledgable about the Australian wildlife, and it wasn't crowded, unlike some of the more commercial attractions. A special thrill for the kids was the birds of prey show, with owls and eagles swooping over the audience.

Deserves to be better known, knowledgeable Rangers, well laid out grounds, animal enclosures well kept. Run by Department for national parks, doing great work for conservation. Great for children. Amazing to see platypus and other creatures of dusk and dawn in the Nocturnal House and the predatory birds in the Flight Show. Gorgeous pair of Cassowaries, they look like birds... More

This wildlife park is not the biggest but it is build up to be a jewel under such kind of parks. It is amazing how the rangers explain each and every detail of the animals in there. Even if it has not the biggest number of animals, it has its atmosphere. You may sit near to a wallabie or touch... More

We only endet up at this park because i did not feel like driving to the other Animal park near by.. Currimbean i think it is called. I am glad we went here. We have been at the other park several times. But never again. This park has an awesome layout, you can feel the planing that went into it,... More

Love to see the great walk through the bush and people loving and looking after wildlife, not as big as some though just a quick drive down the road. But the intention is pure and a loving vibe none the less. Great to visit with young kids.
