It was very quiet on our visit. We managed to have the Devils talk and questions to ourselves. We stroked a devil too...this was awesome experience. Lots of Australian birds which was good to see. We got cold though.

Thought we would just go for half an hour or so and ended up staying two and a half hours. The close encounters are brilliant. Bridie, thank you for all your help.

Thoroughly enjoyed this privately owned park, it is a great credit to everyone involved. Feeding the animals was a very informative experience. And the dinosaurs was a really fun bonus. Such a great variety of birds and animals, especially so many endangered species.

Wide variety of animals, and all set in lovely bush surroundings. Friendly staff happy to answer any questions and a friendly little goat that followed one of my daughters everywhere. Great day out and be sure to go on the four wheel drive adventure also.
