    This wildlife park is a good size for spending a few hours. You can see it all in around 2 hours. However, if you wish to make a day of it there are plenty of seats spread throughout the park where you can sit and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere there. There are a number of talks throughout the day all worh attending. Walking around is easy as the footpaths are fairly flat. Plenty of room foe wheelchair access as well

    Well looked after but unfortunately some of the exhibits where under reconstruction so there where no kangaroos and only 1 kola. Plenty of birds and ducks. The nocturnal animals are always good to see they where very active. Staff are very friendly

    It's a lot quieter on a weekday. It rained heavily when we went and they still were able to put on their 1pm bird/reptile showing which was lovely.

    Wonderful smaller place for the little ones to wander around. A much more personal bird show due to the smaller size. You can tell the rangers really care for the animals. Great experience for the price. Can’t wait for the park to become abit more developed.

    As a local I found it quite disappointing. Park itself is nice and the staff friendly, but the animal content leaves a lot to be desired. We saw one dingo, one emu, one koala, one platypus, and felt sorry for the animals. Hopefully they all had companions who weren't there at the time. Would probably be good for tourists who don't have a lot of time and want to see some native animals in a flying visit, but if you have more time I'd recommend looking at other options.
