We visit this place each time we go. This time we did Breakfast with the Birds, which was excellent. A lovely buffet breakfast in the rainforest area, surrounded by birds.

Hi there, no I didn't see that this was available? I am not sure if they have wombats - maybe check out their website or email them?
Are there specific times of day you can hold and get a photo with a koala or available throughout the day? Also what's the best time of day to visit to get the most out of the park? Thanks!
