We spent a fab day here with friends, learning lots and interacting with all of the animals. Behind the scenes, you can really see how the animals are cared for and how much work goes into running the place. All of the animals have names and unique characters. We loved interacting with them. The accomodation looks pretty good too, so we will come and stay next time. Thanks for a great day out and also for how much effort you put into running the sanctuary. Cheers, Kim

We had a great day in Walkabout Wildlife Sanctuary. The visit was relaxed, the kids joined activities offered by the sanctuary. There are animals running around that make the place feel real, unlike a zoo. The prices are very reasonable and there was no massive crowd. We had the best day !!!

We visited this park last week and I was delighted that it wasn't so busy and not too many people there, even though it was a long weekend. Our 3 Grandkids enjoyed it very much and they had a go at boomerang throwing. The only downside to this park is the uneven ground with many tree roots and rocks there to trip you over. Our grandkids nearly went over quite a few times, luckily they were all wearing good shoes.

Loved the Boomerang throw - was only a dollar to try it out and the kids loved it! The rest of the park is quite small and if you walk quickly, you can finish it all in about 30 min - but that isn't the point. We took our time with each exhibit, fed the goats and what not. Did a bit of walk at the back and we finished up in about 2 hours. I would recommend people to bring their own food as there isn't any here to buy.

The cabins are a lovely place to stay for a few days. I’m posting a photo of a peacock standing on the veranda of my cabin one morning, peering inside through the blinds! One of the big perks of staying there is exploring the park after dark, when many of the animals are very active. Another is getting a ‘behind the scenes’ look at how a sanctuary works, which is fascinating. The park itself is very well managed with knowledgeable staff who take very good care of the animals. It’s just a lovely place to be - I highly recommend it!
