Owner description: WILD LIFE Hamilton Island is one of only a few places in the world where you can experience the thrill and excitement of cuddling a koala. This is an excellent opportunity to get up close and personal with one of Australia's most famous and unique animals. Other experiences include Breakfast with the Koalas, Koala Cuddle Photos, personal encounters with other animals including our Dingoes, Snakes and Lizards, our Keeper Tours (free with admission) and the Twilight Tour and BBQ. For more info visit our website or drop us an email!

Pretty average for adults. The main draw-card is koalas. Lots of families there, as you would expect.
Also has a cafe which does lunches as well. Mainly for families.

Not many animals. $20pp but should be free. Wouldn't recommend a visit but if you must, go at 10am or 4pm when there is a tour.

This park is small but definitely worth the trip. The tour guides are great. Freddie the cockatoo was a hoot. Quite the vocabulary. The guides brought out the dingos on leashes and they rubbed against folks such that you would think they were domestic dogs. The best part was the koala picture. It was incredible to hold a koala. We went to four parks during our stay in AUS and this was the only park that allowed you to hold a koala. This is a definite must see on this very beautiful island.

We visited the wildlife park and cuddled a koala, something I had always wanted to do. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
