A great way to see all the animals you expect to see in Australia and get hands on with them. (Apart from the ones that will kill/eat you!) Would definitely recommend this to others!

Or so we were told by Ranger Mick. We had a great day out at this place, not too big, easily accessible from the M1 motorway, with lots to see that can kill you!! Unlike some others, we did not get a voucher for a free pass, but bearing in mind the work the park does with anti-venom, this did... More

My first trip with my 3.5 year old. We loved it. It's not too big, so you can see everything. It's hands on so we got to pet a Koala. The play equipment is fun and varied, so awfully hard to drag my son away! If I'd known there were bus and picnic areas, I would have packed differently, we... More

I liked the clear sign posts. I liked the ease of carparking. I liked the timetable of keeper presentations that meant we nearly always had an expert talking to us, there was never too long between presentations and clearly marked signs to tour on our own meanwhile. We visited on a dull, cool day but that did not impede our... More

I always end up in giggles at the Reptile Show, as the regular presenter (and park education officer), Mick, uses a heavy dose of humour and sarcasm to present his shows. Kids love his dramatic presentation, and adults appreciate the sneaky jokes. This zoo is small, and perfect for young families who want to spend a morning or afternoon exploring... More

$33 adult entry per person. Nice little reptile park tucked away in a nice easy access location. My first day in Australia so my first zoo visit. Saw some sleepy Koalas (had a photo with one for $20, really nice professional photo printed via reception), alligators (again, had a photo holding one for $20). I heard a few people saying... More

We went on a family visit to the Australian Park, it was $33 for adults and $17 for children over 3. We used buy one get one free vouchers out of the Newcastle Entertainment book, so excellent value. We went with a 7 year old and a 3 year old and they had a ball, it was a great day... More

This park is great value. They put on entertaining shows all day long. It is not very large, so that you can walk around and catch all of the shows, while looking at the exhibits. They have a good selection of Australian reptiles, spiders, and furry animals. There is a large picnic area in the middle of the park, where... More
