This place is looking very sad! I notice a reviewer from 2015 said that (s)he had seen plans for a redevelopment but it hasn't happened yet except for taking away the aviary (and nothing has replaced it). Visible were 2 kangaroos, 1 wallaby, and a...More

Walkabout Creek is a balm for a busy city driven soul, with ample parking, a lovely open air cafe and a tranquil bird filled reservoir. The cafe which serves a range of breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea offerings is good value. The environmental centre is...More

Entrance was free as it was a public holiday but it is generally 7 dollars. 1 wombat, 4 kangaroos, a few snakes and a platypus. It's not going to rock your world, it is within walking distance of a bus stop. Even at 7 dollars,...More

Walked the Araucaria circuit with a group today. Headed off nice and early as this walk gets hot. Beautiful scenery and bird songs. Steep in places but not overly difficult. Just a beautiful walk which took about 2.5hrs. Parking at the discovery centre can be...More

Unfortunately the place was under renovation whilst we visited... however we did see the small amount of animals in the exhibits and got to pat a kangaroo casually laying out on the lawn. Easy enough to get around. Although, apart from entrance into the exhibits,...More

Went for a Saturday morning bushwalk. Got there at 7am and the car park was almost full already! Had an enjoyable walk but few unexpected hills so be prepared. Had a nice coffee afterwards.
