I loved this zoo. I much preferred it to Australia Zoo. Out of everything I did on Philip Island it was the activity I enjoyed most. I really enjoyed being able to feed the kangaroos. At times it got crazy, at times you were completely surrounded by kangaroos.

Sadly it's looking very run down. The animals are gorgeous and well taken care of. However, the place is very run down, things sticking up out of the ground, make sure you wear enclosed shoes.

My kids (3.5yrs) and 6yrs had a ball hand-feeding wallabies, emus, kangaroos and cassowaries. My only disappointment was the customer service. When we arrived in (just after 10am, so the start of the day) the lady at the counter didn't seem happy to see us or our kids. No welcome smile, or greeting. As we walked around we saw one... More

Seems really run down but this was one of the favourite things we did on Phillip Island. The kids were thrilled to feed the Kangaroos and wallaby's. They loved looking at the cockatoos. The emu's were a bit frightening to our kiddos as they swarmed them to get food and they are big birds who will snatch the free food... More

We've been to quite a few wildlife parks in Australia where you can feed the animals but this was by far the best one. The animals have so much space to roam and they are all so relaxed and friendly. Even the animals in enclosures had lots is space. We fed wallabies, kangaroos, emus, geese and cassowary. There were koalas,... More

We visited this park for our second time in 5 years and it didn't disappoint. It's fun to feed the kangaroo's and walk among them. The Emu's are a little scary though, but it was pretty neat getting that close to them. The park itself is in need of a little TLC. Overall it's good value for your money and... More

whilst it was great to see the animals up close and be able to feed them etc the park needs some care and attention to make the best of its self. The decision to put the emus with the red kangaroos seems especially strange with pack of emus being very intimidating to adults never mind children. Some of the animals... More
