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

When I asked the kids what was the best thing they did on their holiday, they both replied that this was the best activity, mainly because of the personal ranger, and the speed dates we booked, but also because of the interaction with the wildlife...More

A great pit stop through tourist route 33 on the way to the Hunter Valley! It was such an experience to be able to get up close with the animals. Kangaroos, wallabies, emus, peacocks and my personal favourite, the 3 turkeys which roamed free throughout...More

We have lots of overseas visitors and they want to see Australian animals up close. If you have a car, I would recommend this place above Taronga because you really get to see the animals up close and it's a lot less busy. It's set...More

What a perfect day at the park. I like this much better than Taronga, was able to be up close with koala's, snakes, kangaroos, etc. I would certainly recommend this to anyone that loves the zoo.

Went with family and grandkids to this site on Tuesday and it was amazing - so many Australian wildlife animals to see and touch - kangaroos and wallabies just walking around and friendly. Kids could feed rabbits, guinea pigs, alpaca's, goats, ducks and geese. Can...More

We absolutely loved this place. From the moment we came in we were in the middle of Kangaroos and Emus freely walking around and - following the right instructions - easy to approach and pet. Every 30 minutes the rangers were sharing information about the...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

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
