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

MUST-SEE, GO HERE FIRST Our Favorite Wildlife experience in Victoria! Skip paying higher prices at other parks in this area if you want a leisurely hands-on experience with wallabies, kangaroos, emus etc. A$17 will grant you entry plus a bag of food, leading to one of the most intimate Kangaroo feeding experiences you'll ever encounter. The park has a real... More

Such a fun place, best zoo we have ever been because it is a free-range one. Feeding the Wallabies was our favourite, they are so cute! They have a good souvenir shop too (much cheaper than most in Melbourne)

Be careful the ostriches while feeding , you get frightened by the way they approach you on seeing the food

Feeding Kangaroos was an excellent experience. There are various species which is helpful for knowing the wildlife of the region. The location is opposite side of Ramada Resort.

This place is wonderful. For $17 you get access to the animals and a bag of feed for them. Took my partner who has just moved here from the US and he loved seeing all the Aussie animals up close, who I am I kidding? I loved it as well, and I've grown up seeing them! It was great to... More

Definitely the best place to visit whilst at Phillip Island and it's not even on any tourist maps! We bought SO many bags of food to feed and play with all the animals that usually you're told to keep away from, and they are all so friendly too! This is something everyone must do in their lives... We went twice... More

I've been there twice now, once with my family as a child and again yesterday with my boyfriend. I had a great time on both visits. There are a wide range of animals to see including but not limited to kangaroos, koalas, quolls, wombats, and many kinds of birds and reptiles. Admission tickets were affordable with each ticket giving you... More
