    I was pretty disappointed with this park. Very few enclosures open and the ones that were open had little to no animals in them! There's more wildlife in the bush surrounding it. And it made me feel really bad for the animals there. We were there for less than an hour because there was nothing to see. Would be better to join forces with Currumbin and give the animals at least somewhat better of a life with others around it, and would give patrons more to see and learn about. Would not go back, would not recommend.

    A small wildlife park. Great for the little ones. Was quiet but enjoyed wandering around at our own pace. Good bird show. Got to see an eagle so that was good.

    Very quiet park, we were probably 10 visitors in the whole park the day I visited, good if you don't like crowd. I found myself bored quite quickly. Happy with the animals I saw but wouldn't go back. Props to the staff though, absolutely lovely and very informative.

    We loved it. Not too busy. Rangers knew their stuff. A great place to take the kids.

    Nice leafy boardwalk surrounded in native animals. All revenues go back into protecting the animals. Friendly staff and reasonable refreshments. Definitely worth a check. Always quiet!
