    Some lovely walks with a big lake. Loads of wildlife in nature. An enclosed part of the lake so good for the kids to swim

    Great place to see wildlife and hear talks from expert rangers. Wildlife shows are interesting and you get to handle different reptiles. Nice informative displays and easy to see wildlife care in neat enclosures. Highly recommended.

    They have kangaroos, wallabies, an emu and a wombat, quite a few snakes and lizards and frogs, but the real highlight is the platypus! It's only a small centre but if you take your time and enjoy everything you can spend a good hour looking at the animals. Don't expect Australia zoo and you won't be disappointed.
