Owners are disrespectful rude and try to intimidate visitors. We left before paying money to camp overnight only to be verbally abused as we were trying to leave. Owners made racist comments and we felt bad for the kangaroos which were mostly locked behind a...More

We staied here for one Night and it was a lovely place with a lot of kangeroos... the campside is not very big but it is enough for one night. Furthermore you have a Great View To the Ocean and the Sunset.

The opening hours are short, but you can be certain that you will be able to see, feed and pet some kangaroos. From their familiarity it is hard to imagine that these animals will ever be able to be released back into the wild, but...More

Really enjoyed our visit, got to feed loads of kangaroos and checked out the whole sanctuary, Garry and his wife obviously work very hard to give the kangaroos the best life possible. They're very passionate about their work and give loads of information about the...More

Whilst it is undoubtably a beautiful spot and a lovely experience to feed and learn more about the kangaroos, the owner needs to rethink his approach to the social and environmental education of visitors. A one hour diatribe is unlikely to make much of an...More

We were disappointed! They maybe doing a great job there with the kangaroos but as a family if you were staying there they still expected you to pay $10 each to feed a kangaroo, something you can do for free in a lot of places....More

It's a small but very impressive walk and worth your visit. Signs advise 45 mins, however 20 mins closer to guide. Make sure you have your camera as it's a real treasure.

I am unsure, there is a number on their website just give them a call. In my opinion I would say not suitable as the camp areas are very close to the edge with some steep drops. In addition, the kangaroos, peacocks and other... More

I don't think so. But they have a WordPress website and also a Facebook page. Just Google them. I tried posting links to their site, but TripAdvisor seem to block this.
