when the lady in my life insisted she wanted to go see the fairy penguins on Philip islands I dodged the answer like a penguin being chased by a great white. In the end what price peace. Sitting here in the cold Antarctic wind waiting for the 10's of thousands of little suckers to arrive. I heard chattering but no... More

The entrance looked a little dated, but this was absolutely not our experience after entering the park. The kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, echidnas, wombats and various birds were well-kept and the open-range areas were an absolute delight to wander through to feed the kangas and wallabies. My partner was absolutely enamoured of the experience (his first time seeing Australian native animals).... More

My partner and I (both in our early 30's) came to check this out. Loved feeding the animals. Would reccomend to anyone who loves animals.

I love visiting here and taking the family as often as we can. The kids love it. Ignore the tired infrastructure and enjoy getting close to Aussie animals. You can not beat this place for that! The animals are well cared for and healthy and to be able to interact with them is GOLD. Highly recommend it!

Honestly, i enjoyed this wayy better than the penguin parade (its cheaper and more interactive). This is my second trip here and i enjoyed it even more as there werent many people. You can hand feed a lot of animals and the feeling is amzing. Theres a list at the entrance thats states which animals can be hand fed. There... More

As an Irish-Australian, I regularly have family come and stay with me. For a first hand native animal experience, this place is the BEST! Most of our Irish visitors want to experience kangaroos in a natural habitat and here, they get to observe them, and also get close enough to feed them. Photo's are always awesome and we always come... More

Have been to this wildlife park a few times now, and it never fails to impress me. Getting close and personal to the Australian wildlife and feeding them is so much fun. Always remember to not use up your feed too fast, and to not take 1000's of photos at each animal, mistakes I have made every time! Will definitely... More

Engaging experience - kangaroos etc feeding out of our hands & lots of photos! Wish they had better labeling & information boards for each exhibit, looks like the place needs some upgrading but not to be missed!

Visited 15 years ago and still feel the same excitement meeting the animals. Only regret was that seems to have fewer animals roaming free now.
