Hiring a personal ranger at this park was the best decision we made while visiting Sydney. We came during a low-tourism season but all of the animals were active. The staff were all kind and knowledgeable, especially our ranger. We were able to interact with...More

This park is small enough to do in a couple of hours. It includes kangaroos, wallabies, flying fox bats, several different birds and most interestingly the Tasmanian devil. In addition to the animals were the aboriginal sites at the back of the park. The wind...More

We were visiting Sydney and wanted the chance to pet Koalas and Kangaroo. We rented a car and drove the hour to Calga. It is very inexpensive to be able to roam around with free Kangaroos. We made it to all the education stops on...More

This was a great experience. To stay in the Australian Bush for a night with the park accessible to you and your group was exciting and insightful. Many of the animals are nocturnal so you get a better chance of seeing them “come to life”...More

Hi there; the rangers are extremely knowledgable and you'll surely get a lot out of a private tour with your two hour window. The park is small and you'll easily be able to walk about with comfort. The Koalas are very... More
