Great outdoor activity to do for kids or adults! The staff was hospitable, the park was clean, the tour was unbelievable! They really care about their animals and understand animal behavior. I loved petting the kangaroos but my favorite part was watching the dogs herd the sheep. They are so well trained and showed off some really awesome moves! Go... More

This is a great place for the kids and for me, a mature adult. You can get up close to the animals. My best memory is the kangaroos just hanging out on the grass. I did not pet one, but could have. One of the zookeepers was there teaching about kangaroos. My grandchildren thought it was the best.

We went in December of 2014 and due to it being during the winter months, we were the only ones there at 9am on a Wednesday morning! We had an amazing time seeing all of the animals (including the little vicious alligator in the welcoming house), and the highlight was definitely being able to walk amongst and pet the Kangaroos!...

My children and I decided to check out Kentucky Down Under based on a brochure we picked up. I think the key to our excellent visit was that we were pretty much the only ones there. Because of that we got to do and see a little more than others might when there are more people there. I want to... More

Went for a short trip with my daughter, the whole family has been here before but wanted to relive a little of my daughters childhood for the day. It was the best trip ever ! My daughter and I had so much fun there. It was better than when the kids was little. New management and people around, they took... More

Wonderful ending for my trip down south. After Mammoth, I remembered this place from 15 yrs ago and had to bring my husband this time. Had a great time with the roos, cute little cava followed us everywhere, but, never let us touch it. The baby roo and momma were my favorite. Loved the Chinese Pheasant. It had great personality!...

Petting kangaroos, it was awesome! Billy the tour guide was awesome! The cave tour was great, even for smaller kids.

They had awesome shows & they taught us several things about the animals they had there. It was an awesome place to go...how many... More

This place was a spur of the moment stop. Worth every penny you pay to get in. Hands on with all types of animals. Parents, big kids and young kids will have a blast. Enjoy your time, and take lots of pictures!!

Took my 2 sons (6 and 10) here kind of in the dark. Planned on goofy zip lines and go karts but they were closed. We punted and went here. Boys started out whiny due to change of plans but that all changed quickly! We got to see a Zebu, a border collie herd a bunch of sheep, a llama... More
