Really satisfied when u visiting here. U will feel the tickets prices are really worth it. But if u want to take pic with the koala, u need to pay extras. A bit disappointed cause the Koala sleep all time.More

Wonderful place to see koalas, kangaroo, and beautiful birds of all kinds. Much more up close and personal experience with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Skip the zoo which was very expensive and head to this wildlife reserve.

Very entertaining, very well kept wildlife park with animals and birds of Australia... and, most important to the kid in me, ample opportunities to feed very cute wallabies at $2.00 AUD for a small container of food. (TIP: Save your food for later in the...More

I just love this place because you can pet the "Safe" mammals. Unfortunately, Koalas are no longer part of the free petting option (you have to pay additional $20 but this comes with a souvenir photo). If you're planning to visit with kids check out...More

Hi Nass Z, Thank you for your feedback. We're really sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay. Animals like to sleep and many Aussie animals are nocturnal, so this is something that can't be helped. However, we recommend visiting in the morning or...More

Hi MrsKanga, We have lots of Quokka's at the park, however they don't live in the free-roaming exhibits as they're quite temperamental compared to other Wallaby and Kangaroo species. You can still feed the Quokka roo-food... More
