Its a very nice place to interact with animals and treat them nice. You can go for morning and afternoon feeding tour. You can prepare the food for the animals and go for a bushwalk.

I worked as a volunteer for 4 weeks in 2013 and 3 weeks in 2014. Recommend to go there by yourself, not with friends (make the desicions for yourself). Positive: the posibility to play, chill, feed and sleep with wild animals! Amazing life-changing experiences you'll...More
