The animals looked healthy and enclosures seem to be well thought out,and good sizes. Any of the older enclosures were in the process of being updated/improved.You can generally get a good view of the animals, and kids would love the feeding displays, and the interaction where it was available.A good variety of animals well worth a visit.

A great small zoo with delightful grounds and well designed and spacious animal enclosures. There is not a huge number of animals but a good cross section and the animals look extremely healthy and contented. To avoid the crush of people and large number of noisy children go early and make a point of hand feeding the wallabies while others... More

Billabong gets the balance right. It's a medium size zoo with mostly Australian animals. It treats the animals well. You can see koalas, penguins, a massive crocodile, kangaroos and lots of birds. You can have your photo taken next to a koala with the keeper holding it. Much better than stressing them with handing them from person to person. Good... More

the price to get in is a bit costly for what the wild life park has to see unless you listen to keepers talks or stay for feeding you see it all in under an hour the wildlife park has nice surrounds and enclosures

This is a great little place to see a lot of variety in animals, from Australian natives, to snow leapods and coming soon - a lion! Easy to walk around. The centre isn't massive, and took us 2 hours to see everything. The wallabies were very friendly and probably a highlight, as we were able to pat and feed them... More

We had an awesome day and the kids never got bored once. So much to see and the presentations by the staff were well spreadout through the day. They even have a Lion coming which will make it even better.
