I hate zoos, that is until I went to Billabong, Wow. A large number of species but a small number of each one. The Zoo is well maintained and clean and the staff so friendly. The feeding timetable is so set that you have time to walk from one feeding to the next without hurrying. All feedings have a comprehensive... More

The grandkids enjoyed the park and the pay ground. The Kangaroos were very quiet and the kids could sit and feed them. The additional options of photos were a little over prised. Overall enjoyed the day.

Spent a good couple of hours here, enjoyed the different animal presentations throughout the day. Short and informative sessions on some of the animals such as dingo, red panda, snow leopard and koala. Value for money. Good facilities and also good to be able to take own picnic.

We had a day to fill so having read the reviews decided to visit Billabong Zoo/Koala Park. Got there in time to see all the feeding times. 1st was the Fairy Penguins at 10am....followed every 30 minutes or so throughout the day- dingos, wombats, meerkats, koalas, wallabies all close up. Good day out AND Seniors Discount!

The zoo is close to town and an easy drive. Entry fee is more than reasonable and you can add on animal experiences. We fed the penguins and got to hold two of them while we learnt more about them with the keeper. All the keeper talks were very informative and worthwhile. The crocodile talk included meeting a baby crocodile,... More

My wife and I went there because we at a loose end and had just been for a drive to Wauchope and dropped in on the way back to Port Macquarie what a great place if the repainted the billboard on the highway they would get more people than they could handle but for us a great park very relaxing

The place looks a little dated..the owner and the long blonde haired female that tags along with him are not overly pleasant, but the rest of the staff are really lovely, I think it would be a nice little zoo regardless of who does or doesn't own it..good selection of animals, and tidy enough, enclosures all looked clean and maintained...

Went to the zoo over Easter and it was great. Animal talks were really good and it was easy to get around. They have some fantastic and different animlas, especially seeing it isn't in a capital city - we were really impressed. The meerkats, tigers and red pandas were a huge hit. Love that there is an open area with... More
