Fantastic place to take kids, tourists or even a date! Very relaxed, more chilled out Wildlife park. Easy parking.

Rate this place. Small, but intimate. Saw a show (creatures of the night) and we (myself, husband, and two daughters) loved it. Lovely boardwalk to see the animals, which looked happy and well-looked after. More of a natural habitat than exhibits like other zoos. Not too crowded. Very ethereal place to visit, actually. Cafe is quite basic, with just fish and chips, nuggets and chips, or display case sandwiches on offer. Nice coffee. We were happy with that as a family as it cost us $23 for lunch. If that's not your thing, I think you can bring a picnic lunch. It was such a shame it started to rain and we had no ponchos, we would have liked to go around again and see another show. Would definitely recommend a visit.

A beautiful wildlife park with a range of Australian animals. Great presentations from rangers throughout the day, easy to explore, great parking. Highly recommended!

Koalas, rock wallabies, tree kangaroos, giant crocodiles, dingos, walk about wallaby and emu section, free flight show with birds of prey, cockatoos and water birds. I was very impressed with animals being well cared for, rangers are very knowledgeable and park is maintained to a high standard. I wish their cafe had fresh healthy vegetarian food items such as salads, rice paper rolls, sushi, veggie sticks and dip, fresh made to order wraps and sandwiches, and antipasto platters to share. It’s not somewhere you go to enjoy a healthy lunch, however they make great barista coffee!
