The purpose of my trip there was to, simply, hold a koala. I paid like $27, waited 40 minutes....and got my picture taken holding a koala. I didn’t go into the park at all. Staff was friendly and informative.

This place is really small. For the price you pay, you can visit again up to 4 days afterward but after the first visit, it's not really worth it, you can walk around in 1/2 an hour and see everything. My son did the ropes course, which he said was fun but not long enough compared to others he has done. The zip lines seem to be the main attraction here but we have gone zip lining outdoors, which I would imagine would offer a better experience and better views as again, this place is small. They advertise the last koala experience as being at 630 but we arrived at 445 only to be told the koalas already went home for the day. Maybe having that experience would have made up for our visit there but maybe not because again, this place is very small.
