Our family of 5 (with three kids 12 and under) visited Cohunu Koala Park in late September and were so pleased! We could tell right away as we pulled into the parking area that this wasn't DisneyWorld. The signs showed plenty of age, the lot...More

How sad it was to go here. It wasn't a particularly hot day however in Byford it was and the animals were really feeling it. The poor kookaburras are in a tin enclosure which radiates the heat terribly and they were struggling. We're sad to...More

Visited today and it was my third time. It’s a lovely park with extremely friendly staff. Personally feel like it’s a bargain as it’s only 15AUD to enter the park and roam around to see all the animals. I did read that other people feel...More
