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!

Easy access to parking. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. All animals treated well and cared for (even the blow-ins). Great tours and presentations given. Our visit there flowed well and the scheduling of presentations/ tours easy to follow and kept us engaged. We were there during school holidays but never felt crowded.

It was my 4th visit for breakfast with the birds and every time there is a new experience to be had. The offerings are great, but unfortunately, the champagne one could have in the past has been stopped by the licensing people, wish it would come back as it set the tone for the day.

We were very disappointed with our visit to the Habitat - the over all cleanliness and unsupervised feeding areas - the kangaroos are clearly over fed and some unable to even get up. The crocodile enclosure was partially closed off - which someone could have told us as my niece is doing an assignment and we needed to spend time... More

I went to the habitat with low expectations but spent 5 amazing hours there. The staff is knowledgeable, caring and informative, the inhabitants are beautiful beyond belief. Bring a good camera, comfortable shoes and plenty of time.
