Our family (with kids 6 & 8) spent a whole morning here and loved it. The guided tour was very good and we also got to explore on our own. Sometimes it was hard to get close enough to see and hear what the guides were saying but that didn't detract too much from the experience. Towards the end of... More

Handle a snake, fear the crocodiles, enjoy the butterflies and birds flying around, it is an absolute must do.

We spent one morning and one afternoon simply watching the birds in the stork and rainforest areas. They were fascinating, and particularly easy to spend time with on the second visit when there was virtually noone else around. Schools were back and February is their quiet month.

Went for a quick family visit with three children and ended up spending three hours. Setup of the place is great - you walk 'inside' with the birds and kangaroos on a trail. Relatively small layout and easy to navigate. Family loved the crocodile feeding, koala holding (you have to pay extra as there is a photo opportunity) and kangaroo... More

This is a great little place. It is reasonably priced and there is a fair bit to see. Grab a $2 bag of food and you can feed the kangaroos, wallabies and wild birds. Photos etc available for koalas and live feeding of crocodiles. Really cool place.

Go early to the wild life habitat then you can have a breakfast with the birds.I have been quite a few times and it is a great experience, if you go to the souvenir shop you can by food for the kangaroos and wallabies. When we feed them we saw a baby kangaroo in its pouch. There was a crocodile... More

Didn't think this would be much good based on Sydney experiences but was surprised by how much we enjoyed the visit. 3 habitats and plenty of flora and fauna - really well laid out and you could almost think you were in a rain forest. No crowds which was great, reasonable pricing; sell food, coffee and alcohol (cocktails included). You... More

Ticked all the boxes of those things we needed to experience. Had the most wonderful morning. Breakfast with the birds - good buffet type breakfast. Special moments included a cuddle with a koala, hand feeding kangaroos (many with young in pouch), up close to crocodiles which unfortunately we did not see in their natural habitat in the river. Made our... More
