Excellent wildlife park with Australian animals like dingoes, kangaroos, wallabies, cassowaries, pademelons and wombats. The free roaming kangaroos and wallabies were very gentle and friendly but the emus were slightly aggressive especially if you have food in your hands.

We really enjoyed the wild life park. I had no idea we were going to be so up close and personal to so many animals like kangaroos, wallabies, emus, swans etc. and its such a different experience from the zoo. My little 3 year old had a good time feeding and stroking the kangas and getting up close to the... More

This is one place we bring all our overseas visitors to. You get up close and personal with a lot of cute little Aussie critters all in one place. The high point is definitely being able to hand-feed the wallabies and kangaroos (your entrance fee includes a packet of feed). The park is reasonably well kept, and clean, and safe... More

The main attraction of this wildlife park is the free roaming kangaroos. There are two types of kangaroos here. The eastern grey kangaroo and western grey kangaroo. You will be given a pack of feeds to feed the kangaroo. Beware of the eastern grey kangaroo as they might snatch you feed pack or chasing you for the feeds. The western... More

You get to see a lot of different animals in their normal everyday life. I recommend paying for the koala interactions, where you can take as many pictures as you want. The also buy some food, so you can feed the Emu, Wallaby and Kangaroos!

On a very rainy day we had a guided tour of the Phillip Island Wildlife Park. Due to the weather the animals were a bit hard to see, but we were able to spy a few koalas and some kangaroos. Staff were great, helpful. Nice wooden walkways. Would enjoy it better in dryer weather! Visitor center has education area, gift... More

This was our 3rd trip to this park. It's a lovely place to go. The kids and big kids can hand feed animals. We love to see the babies and there is always babies to see. The kids love feeding the kangaroos and wallabies. The kangaroos come bounding up to be fed and allow you to pat them. I love... More

It was a nice change from a lot of other wildlife parks I've been to in that a bag of feed was actually included in the entrance fee! There are lots of animals to feed (especially kangaroos and emus), which is pretty much why I went here. 5/5. Would go again.

Unfortunately we went at high tide, which meant there was a limited amount of beach to be able to see the little penguins - we were lucky to be reasonably close to the front so we got a view, but I suspect the people behind us were very limited in what they saw. The staff did a great job trying... More
