    This is out third visit and loved it again. It's a park that is easy to walk around with prams or wheelchair, it's very shaded and the outdoor bird show is great. The main attraction for us is the platypus ! Tip is, if you don't catch a glimpse at first the park is small enough to slip back a couple of times and no doubt you'll see him if you're patient.

    Lovely little park! Great place to spend a couple hours and support conservation. Bring bug spray.

    Absolutely loved this place. Very natural setting. The animals are so well looked after by their wildlife carers and rangers. Beautiful setting, without the usual Gold Coast theme park and commerce vibe. Highly recommended if you love animals and nature.

    I loved ranger Clinton's show, the animals were crazy but he had it all under control. They say you should never work with children or animals, but where's the fun in that. The park is awesome and it's so great to know these animals are getting a second chance at life. Loved it there

    Great place to spend a few hours. Nice range of birds. Shows are late morning/lunchtime so don’t arrive to late or you will miss them. The staff member putting the eagle away was very friendly and went out of his way to give us a detailed show explaining everything about the eagle.
