We spent an hour or more here on the recommendation of a friend. Definitely not appealing from the outside but we actually had a great time. We brought our niece and nephew from the uk and they were able to see many Australian animals up close, including koalas, Tasmanian devils, wombats, echidnas, kangaroos, wallabies, dingos, emu and heaps more. They... More

My family visited this park first thing in the morning when it opened. We were immediately greeted by a few wallaby that came hopping over for food, which was given to us upon entry. My 3 year old daughter was thrilled! Because we arrived first thing the animals were all quite active and alert. This was a great opportunity to... More

Gives a very good idea of wild flora and fauna of this part of Victoria. Not too far from Melbourne and one-day trip is enough. I recommend to visit.

I would say, this park is the most well-worth a visit in Phillip Island. The entry fee of AUD$17 for adult is reasonable (I would say cheap if compared to other parks in Phillip Island). The entry fee that I paid comes with a pack of "pet food" to you can use to feed the wallabies and kangaroos. You can... More

The protection of the penguins is done with such high dedication from the part of the Rangers that we can only thanks them for the excellent job. This enables all of us to have the chance to watch the penguins at such close distance.

This place was not well-advertised, but was mentioned by someone at our hotel. We were unsure if this was the same as the Koala Conservation Center, but by asking enough questions at the Phillip Island information center, we were able to figure out which was which, and decided that this was the one we wanted to see. So glad we... More

This park is big, open - and gives you a chance to hand feed very nosy emus and very friendly kangaroos and wallabies in an open range space. They are well cared for and very inquisitive, but have the space to hide from tourists if they wish - which is important. Great range of native animals to see in general,... More

Great for kids and adults! Need to pile on warm clothing as it is extremely cold sitting at beach, waiting for the penguins to come ashore.
