Nice little animal park where you get to see many Australian native animals, you also have the opportunity to feed kangaroos and wallabies. Café on site.

Thanks for your review. We are all very pleased about our koala joey and it was great you had a chance to see him. We think the Wallaby Walk is a great experience, too. Your visit helps finance our conservation work.

Closeup encounter with Koala, Barn Owl, Kangaroos n Wallabies. Although the entrance fee n the ticket for the close encounter with the koala n owl are not cheap, but it if is really for the cause of conservation, I believe it’s worth it.
