The initial ticket will gain you access for the remainder of your trip. We took our 2yo 4 times over 2.5 days as the park isn’t very big and was a great way to pass half an hour. We also did the 4pm feeding tour...More

We do appreciate your feedback and recommendation our return ticket for families is extremely popular and our team do enjoy meeting the regular guests who make use of this. We do hope that the rest of your time on the island was as enjoyable. .

We stopped here for breakfast with the koalas. Be early at 7:30 when they open as they bring them out to feed or they’ll be dopey and sleepy in no time. Breakfast was super second rate but the novelty appealed. We didn’t do the whole...More

Really enjoyed getting to see Koalas, Wallabys and Dingoes here. I'm not a fan of Zoos, and this felt like the right half way house between captivity and genuine wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. Do go for one of the...More

I’ve visited the wildlife park during my stay once. As it is simply very very small I want you to know not to expect too much. A nice thing for families is the breakfast with the koalas or the dingo experience. In my opinion a...More

Reading all the reviews saying that the Wildlife is small, smelly etc, we had our hesitations before going there. Nonetheless, all concerned were melted when we walked into the Koala Breakfast. The Koalas are really close to tables! The zoo keepers were wonderful and the...More

Make sure to go during one of the feeding tours. It does not cost any extra and the tour guide will get the animals close enough to pet and touch. Whole thing takes less than an hour.
