This place was fantastic. It was part of a Yarra Valley tour we were on. We thought we were doing the wineries tour so we were a little dissapointed when we found out that we were actually going to an animal sanctuary.....But it was way better than wineries!!!!
Our tour guide was a 'little old lady' volunteer, this was going to be a nice stroll around the park, I thought.....boy was I wrong, for a senior citizen she could sure move. She showed us as much as she could in the 2 hrs we had. The park is run by volunteers, which is a credit to all of them. The animals look well looked after & they are in a very natural looking habitat. My favorite was the Platypus & I bought a toy one as all the money goes back to the park. T.he carvings & statues around the park are lovely too
I will definitely go back as we only saw a small part of this 3 km park
