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

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.

This little gem exceeded our expectations. There are so many animals to see, pat and hand feed. The animals are friendly and are very accommodating of young children. We will make this a must"-do" on our next visit to Phillip Island!

Good value for money with a bag of food included in the entrance fee. Not many places let you walk amongst the animals & hand feed them so this is a great experience for kids. Large open areas with wallabies, kangaroos & emus roaming as well as caged areas with smaller animals & birds. Our 18 month old daughter had... More

This is a rustic, non touristy wildlife park which is a fantastic place to see lots of Australian Wildlife. We were so glad that our B&B host told us about it as we wouldn't have known about it otherwise. To be up close and personal to so many Wallabies and Kangaroos is an experience we will not forget. It was... More

This is a real hands on wild life park - you get your own bag of pellets to feed the animals... We had the wallabies and roos eating out of our hands, they had good manners and were not pushy. It's great to know that there is a safe place for birds and animals, some that are injured and can't... More

Do not be put off by the underwhelming entrance to this park. Once through the cafe/ticket area, you feel like you're walking around a farm. There are wallabies hoping around, wait6ing to be handfed. We saw koalas awake and eating in the middle of the day, Wombats walking around, dingos, eagles, owls, lots of grey kangaroos, also waiting to be... More

This is probably the best attraction in Philip island. Only for a small fee (less than AUD20), we get to feed the animals - my favourite is the kangaroos! They're very friendly, but can get quite scary when it comes in a group. They're really cute! I bought one extra bags of food to feed the animals. Recommended for everyone... More
