Especially if you stay in their B&B, you'll get to know the kangaroos by name and their personalities and can enjoy the birdsongs when you wake up. They have a world-class collection of Australian animals. It is a trip you won't forget!

Couldn't agree with the above poster more. I live in Far North Queensland and have been to all the wildlife parks, this one surpasses them all. One of Australia's best collection of native parrots and finches; crocodiles, sugar gliders, emus, kangaroos, cassowaries, quolls, bettongs, dingos...More
