Visited the sanctuary in Sept 2014, had a great day out!! Wandering in the enclosure with the kangaroos and emu's was amazing, the highlight of the day however was getting my picture taken holding a koala. Excellent value for money.

I liked to be there. Great nature, smiley faces and koalas. Nice experience. You can go with your family and enjoy nature all day.

My wife and I visited the Sanctuary along with our 4 year old in mid-July 2014. We had heard a lot about the place and it certainly did not disappoint. Part zoo, part rescue center, this contains a who's who of the Aussie wildlife - Koalas, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Dingoes, Emus etc. Equally wonderful to watch are all the other animals... More

I enjoyed my time, it was limited as I took the cruise by river and we arrived about 11.30am and had to board back at 1.45pm. So I chose to take photos and not miss out on the Sheep dog show which was at 12.30pm. I even saw a platypus swimming in the dark room, I was excited as I... More

Lots of diferent animals . Allow yourself a LOT of time so you dont miss the animals feeding sessions. The koala holding is super fast per person , you hold just for enough time to get the picture taken . But great to know each koala is exposed to be help by humans for only thirty minutes a day. Take... More

Went there twice so far, was simply enjoyable. love the way the wallabies were kept in a large area where they are free to roam around to be fed by visitors. Took a few selfies with them as well. I also brought my family and my husband's family there when they came to visit us from S'pore on 2 different... More

A once-in-a-lifetime experience that everyone must do! Hold a koala (even if it's just for a minute), feed the kangaroos, look at a tasmanian devil (even if it slept the whole time during your visit), touch a snake, and just be surrounded by koalas. Of course there are more other animals such as native birds, a wallaby, and emus. My... More

If you are in Australia then you have to see Koalas and Kangaroos and this is the best place to visit. Its better to book online to get some discounts.. small place and should't be considered as a Zoo, But its a must visit place.. you can easily spend 3-4hrs. Its accessible via Bus.

Quaint sanctuary with close up and easy accessibility to all of the animals. Bring cash if you want to take pictures holding a koala, no credit cards accepted. If you do not want to pay, you can sit through the presentations and the Ranger brings a koala out for all to pet. Seems like all the animals of Australia are... More
