So many things to see and do. I always take overseas guests here and they are always blown away. Hand feeding kangaroos and wallabies, being chased by emus, wombats, etc. Great day out at very reasonable prices.

Phillip Island Wildlife Park is a fantastic day out. My husband and I spent a few hours here and it was well worth the money (It costs $17 per adult and you get a free bag of food to feed the animals included). You can actually feed the kangaroos by hand which was a great experience!! I'd definitely recommend this... More

This place is amazing!! My boyfriend and I have been coming to Phillip Island for the last 8 years, but this is the first time we have visited the Wild Life Park. The entire time we were walking through, we were saying "I can't believe we have never come here!!!" On arrival you get given a bag of animal feed... More

A must skip for those expecting Koalas as they have just six in total with only three to be sighted. Imo's are aggressive and do not let Kangaroos to be fed. Have been to many parks but this is the worst one, wasted time and money. Staff at reception did not agree to my views and was happy for complaint... More

I stayed in Phillip Island for 2 weeks as a volunteer. Phillip Island is truly a beautiful place filled with wild life. Apart from the famous penguin parade(which is so awesome), there are also other Australian wild life spotted such as Koalas, Walabis and Australian seals. Maybe not many people would notice, but a lot of plants in Phillip Island... More

A some sort of open park, this place its a nice location to see the local fauna in a natural environment. Lots of animal wandering around and at the same time, lots of small places to visit within a farm ambience. A nice combination of exercise, vegetation and animals, its a nice activity to do....

For those who are used to caging zoos like I do, this was a dreaming place. Friendly animals in free range area where you can directly interact. Great for kids and animal lovers.

It is good for those who wants an experience with feeding kangaroos in an open park. You get to see kangaroos of all ages and some other wildlife animals but of small numbers. Its a huge park so wear the right footwear.
