Overview

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.

I personally struggled with seeing how small the enclosures were. From reading review responses I understand the responses to date have advised that high standards are met however it is extremely upsetting that this is even a standard let alone high. The crocodile enclosure is...More

Excellent place to visit the family loved it. Have been about ten years ago I don't think it has changed very much in saying that still think it was wonderful. Great place for a family very informative. Breakfast was lovely value for the money.
