We visited this wildlife venue primarily to see the cassowary up close. We were not disappointed. It was fantastic to see two cassowaries so close I was able to get magnificent photos. The staff were so friendly. Our guide for the wetlands habitat was especially excellent and so friendly, providing stimulating education on the wildlife present. In addition to the... More

This place was really cool, our 13 and 7 year old kids loved it! Very interactive. The kids held a koala, baby croc and python for photos (at 3:30pm today, for those asking in other reviews), and got to feed wallabies, kangaroos and emus just with a $2 fee for a bag of food. Very tame, lovable kangaroos. Beautiful bird... More

We had a great morning at the wildlife habitat. My 84yo aunt loved all the birds. There are some kangaroos, wallabies, crocodiles and others however the main focus appears to be on birds. Beautiful birds. There were 5 fluffy baby ducks that were gorgeous to watch with their parents. Staff are helpful. Crocodile feeding was average as it was hard... More

Awesome place. The restaurant area with the birds is so good. Such a good layout and you end up spending more time here than you thought you would. 2nd time here and would do it again.

Very nice park with animal interaction at the night visits. I was just a little frustrated when interacting with the kangaroos, as I expected they were going to be in a great number. So, it's a good idea to get tips on where to stay when they are released from their quarters into the park.

This is a well-presented series of 3 habitats covering wading birds, koalas, cassowaries, kangaroos and crocodiles, with opportunities for feeding the rather tame animals.

What a place to visit! So many different types of birds and animals, and so interactive! We got to pat snakes and a baby crocodile, and feed kangaroos and emus, ducks and geese. Lots of cute and quirky wildlife to be seen, and we had the best time! Would love to come back soon!
