Make sure you go during feeding time. You also get to pet the koalas and give them a little hug. Very low price for 1 day of fun

Had a Christmas lunch in December. Turkey, chicken, vegetables. Followed by pudding and custard, just like a home cooked meal. It's a very friendly atmosphere with the added bonus of seeing some kangaroos and other wildlife in the gardens outside, that is lovely for children...More

Urimbirra is well maintained and the fauna well cared for. The highlights were patting the koalas and snake handling but the $1-a-bag pellets kept the children entertained feeding the kangas while we searched out all the animals and birds on the supplied map.

Great Prices! For a dollar you can buy a bag of kangaroo food and feed kangaroos by hand. They also let you pet koalas at certain times of the day (11, 2, 4) and hold snakes at 4pm. Really nice staff, would definitely recommend

It is very cute place with LOTS of friendly kangaroos, koalas and Australian native animals. It`s also very affordable and not that busy, as other wild parks.An unique experience for us, the Europeans.
