Definitely a place to get your Australian animal fix. This stop was part of our tour on the way from Sydney to the Blue Mountains and seems like a stop by other tour companies as well. The highlight of the animals for us here definitely...More

Our family group of 8 visited the park to experience proximity to Australian wildlife. The animals were numerous and very used to being around people, even small children. The animals were in good physical condition and plentiful. Each enclosure contained examples with signage explaining what's...More

So glad we stopped here on our way to Blue Mountains! We arrived early with our Greyhound Bus Tour and avoided the crowds. Some kangaroos are walking around us. There are lovely and interesting exhibits. Well worth the visit!

The park is well organised, plenty of places to weave in and out and return back to. They had a lot of sessions to demonstrate to the audience, although the kids got bored by the spiel before the interesting things happened (for them). Make sure...More

Loved the look on my daughter's face as she was feeding the kangaroos! They are very friendly and unafraid of people. This is a very small park, but you can spend a few hours taking pictures and feeding the kangaroos. We were very disappointed because...More

Hi Marie G, Thank you for your feedback, although some of your comments concern us. To clarify, in our Personal Koala Encounter, the Koala is in no way attached, "chained" or strapped to their perch. The Koala on average sleeps up to 20 hours a...More
