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.

Nice place to visit and get up close and learn some facts about the animals.
Family friendly but caters to everyone, worth a visit while on the island

It was $59 for 1 adult and 2 kids and you could see everything in under an hour, so I don’t think great value for money. The cafe area is nice with the koalas, but after about 10.30 they were moved to another enclosure, so you needed to be there early to see them in the cafe area. All Australian native animals which was great, there just weren’t many of them. We did a tour and the guide (Sophie? ) was very knowledgeable and handled some annoying kids well.
There’s very little shade, so make sure you’ve got hats and plenty of sunscreen.

Many thanks for your feedback, Sophie is doing a fabulous job and is very passionate about her animals and work so always great to receive this type of comment from guests. As the entry tickets you purchased are geared for return visitation we do hope that you managed to return to experience both the 10am and 4pm tours given they are quite different and the 4pm tour involves the feeding of the animals which is always enjoyable particularly the large crocodile which always draws a crowd. We trust your stay on island was enjoyable.
