It is a very interesting park and easy to walk around as it was flat. Try your luck to see Kangaroo in Kangaroo Trail, Koala in the Koala Trail and enjoying the surrounding with the nature while listening to birds sounds. That is a gem!

This was the first time in Australia that we saw kangaroos. They were so beautiful! We followed the trail. There were many information panels about nature. I liked that. At times we were on a boardwalk. We saw nature at its best. Worthwhile to see!

No, the kangaroos are used to people. Just walk past and they will be fine.
