This was a really interesting place to visit - with a little museum/homestead buildings and some really good wildlife. Good walks, good facillitries etc. Worth a look if you have time.

This was one of my favorite activities of our entire trip! You actually got to hand feed and touch the kangaroos, wallabies, emus and more! The animals were so tame you could even touch the joeys in their mothers' pouches! I saw animals I had only read about before--kookaburras; wombat; Tasmanian devil; dingos, etc. Got great animal photos, too!

My partner and I enjoyed the visit. We bought extra bags of food to give to the free ranging animals - wallabies, kangaroos, emus, swans. Children may want to stick to feeding swans and wallabies as the Eastern grey roos can be a bit intimidating (to me anyway) but if you ignore them they stop expecting food. The park has... More

Went to feed the kangaroos at the Wildlife Park (that's the only attraction that we paid for). Drove over to the Nobbies hoping to see the seal, but there weren't any. That was mid afternoon so maybe the seals were out at sea.

I have been to this attraction 3 times now and would visit it again. You can buy bags of food to feed the animals when you are there. Lots of great opportunities for hand feeding kangaroos, close ups with koalas, emus, wombats and many other animals. Kangaroos and many birds are roaming unenclosed and quite friendly to approach. Don't feed... More

We had fun here, and getting close to the wallabies and kangaroos was the highlight. There are other animals worth seeing as well, but overall you get what you pay for and this place cannot be compared with the many other truly outstanding zoo experiences in Australia in terms of range of animals, scope, or quality of the grounds and...

After comparing several companies in the internet to visit animals, we decided to come to this place. We paid $17 per person and we got a bag of food to feed the animals. You could feed wallabies, kangaroos and emus and also pet them. Reading the reviews we think that the place is not as dirty and rundown as written.... More

Great place to see and interact with the animals. The facilities seem to be maintained at a minimum level and nothing flashy. Fixing the signs to identify better the animals and a map to take around would make it much better. Best place we've been to interact with Wombats. Awful website, pleasantly surprised overall.

Perfect place to roam with free range native animals. And you are allowed to feed them with pellets included in the entry price. Take your overseas visitors. needs some work to spruce up but very enjoyable day here.
