“Totally recommend for an up close experience with Koala's.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Took our 2 young children, who loved getting up close to the different animals. Spent a couple hours looking around. Ponies, emu's and peacocks roaming freely around the grounds. Walk in Kangaroo enclosure. Mini train to take you around park. And of course the main attraction the Koala's, which are so lovely to look at and not behind wire, so can get some great photo's. Staff bring out Koala's for you to pat and get close look at. Able to pay extra for a cuddle. All money's go back into park. Cheaper than some other places only $15, free for under 3yrs. Great family day out.

“FUN DAY OUT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We went along to the Cohuna Koala Park with our 9 month old son and had a really fun day! He was amazed by all the animals & the staff were very informative, friendly and passionate about what they do. Albeit some of the park is still under development and they could do with more support and volunteers, overall we had a really good experience and I would definitely recommend it to others. The real steam train is a must and the kids loved it! We should show our support and help out this privately run park so we can contribute to helping these animals have larger enclosures to ensure our kids have the opportunity to experience these beautiful animals present & future.

“Looking for a home for a stray Rainbow Lorikeet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Although the park had many lovely attractions, the aviary was too big for my stray bird who was eventually housed at the Armadale Reptile Park.

Not too crowded and easy to get up close and personal with the animals. Staff also exceptionally friendly and do their best to make the experience a good one.

If you want that Aussie real bush feel and to see the animals then its a great place to go to on a not so hot day.
