Had a great time here. The animals are so nice and because you can pet a lot of them it’s quite the interactive experience. Would highly recommend it! Need about 2 hours to see everything but we spent the good part of a day here....More

I went primarily to see the Koalas and was not disappointed as there were hundreds of them. Enjoyed the roo feeding area and the raptor show as well. Pretty cool to see a platypus swimming around. My only complaint was it seemed a bit pricey.

Really good day out! Took a 3 year old who loved the interaction with the Roos and koalas. Paid the $20 to get to hold the koala which was well worth it!

Nice park with a lot of koalas and kangeroos. Nice to feed the kangaroo and made a lot of pictures. When you want to hold a koala for the picture expect to pay 20 per person. But when you paid, your friends are allowed to...More

Spent the day visiting and touching some of the amazing animals of this beautiful country. Koala were both beautiful and amazing (another item off my bucket list). Shame about the weather, but this didn't dampen our enjoyment. All the enclosures were large enough and well...More
