Been here many times in the past twenty years and it has remained frozen in time. The only exception is the back section for the kangaroos. It needs an upgrade. To see the eagle keep slamming into the wire fence was a little upsetting. The...More

Lots of Kangaroos but everything else must have been asleep or dead. $20 entry was a bit much. You get a bag of food to feed the Roos but that's about it. Girl at the counter was lovely

This is a fantastic place to see Australian wildlife. A reasonably priced entrance includes a package of food to feed the kangaroos which roam freely around the large park area. The kangaroos are friendly and will approach you and there are several varieties that roam...More

This Wild Life Park is private and therefore not on most maps. We really liked it because many of the safer animals roamed free (emus, kangaroos). In other parks, you might see only one type of animal (koalas) but this park had a great variety....More

This parks maintenance is clearly very very neglected and due the neglect the animals are truely suffering!!! This place should not be supported by tourism and the animals should be relocated.

This wildlife park is different from others. Many less fierce animals run free and you can go almost anywhere. Not much signs and mandatory walkways, but large areas with Australian wildlife. Kangaroos and Walabies like the little treats you get upon admission. Yes, the park...More

I am sorry I do not think so, you could ask the owners but it is unlikely. Hope you one and enjoy your stay. There is also the Koala Park it had more Koalas and excellent viewing. I don't think they allow people to hold... More
