“Surprisingly great day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Heard of this little wildlife park and thought there would be a chance to see a few animals but was pleasantly surprised. Really interesting presentation both with the koalas and the Tasmanian Devils and plenty chance to wander round the park feeding different animals.

As a tourist from the UK there were plenty of different native animals to Australia to see and play with and wander round seeing.

Good day

“Expensive and not much variety.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Good kangaroo and Tasmanian Devil display, but not much else. A few birds and a couple of koalas. We took our three grandchildren and it cost the five of us $70. In WA there is (was) a similar park called Marapana which was less expensive and with much greater animal display and contact.

“Up close with kangaroos!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

If you are an animal lover, you will love the closeness of how the kangaroos run freely in the park.. you get to feed the kangaroos and just be careful not to have too many kangaroos around you! The Devil's run has a lot of Tasmanian Devils and they are so cute too.. a nice place to see the animals..

“great morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

a lovely place to spend a couple of hours, great access to animals, including being able to feed Kangaroos and rub a Koala. A little hard to take around a buggy as some of the steps were a bit steep. WOuld strongly recommend this as a place to visit.
