We always bring overseas visitors to this place. From the outside, it looks a little unkempt and that it might be a waste of money. You'd be wrong. $17 entry fee for an adult and this includes a bag of feed. You can spend as long as you like, wandering from one enclosure to another and hand feeding wallabies as... More

Phillip Island Wildlife Park is just outside Cowes on Phillip Island. We visited with two young boys (ages 2 and 3) and they enjoyed the visit. The free ranging animals is definately one of the big plusses with this park - whilst the majority of animals are in enclosures there are many that are allowed to roam around the park.... More

Having seen many kangaroos in the wild during our time in Australia, it was sad to see them in a park like this. Kangaroos in the wild had been approachable and somewhat tame however the ones in this park were aggressive at times.The birds were kept in very cramped conditions, especially the kookaburras and owls. There were dead chicks on... More

We decided to visit the wildlife park whilst on a short break to Phillip Island. Looks are deceiving as from the outside the park looks a bit rundown but we were pleasantly surprised. It costs $17 per adult $13 for children ($46 for the family). Everyone gets a bag of feed that can be used to hand feed some of... More

We loved it. You can feed the wallabies, kangaroos, emus and wombats. Actually, you can feed anything that moves. The children loved feeding the animals; wanted to take a koala and dingo pup home but were happy to just hiss at the snakes in their cages. I was a little worried about the daggy settings but quickly realised that they... More
