Stopped here en route to the wine country on an organized tour. I could have spent a day but only had about 40 minutes. Petted and fed a kangaroo. Stroked a koala, and got close up with a couple of birds. We also got to watch the devils race around like hellions. The health issues with the devils are in... More

I'm an annual pass holder so I go there regularly with my two small kids. It's the perfect size for children, they are tired but happy at the end of it, not exhausted & narky. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. The park itself is very interesesting (with a very good playground and... More

Before the shows start it's pretty quiet and I thought it would be boring as its not very big the actual park. but I found the key thing were the shows/talks. I thought they were great and educational. Very informative. Loved it when they fed the gators that was great to watch and also the big croc "Elvis". My 5... More

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
