Oh my goodness I had the best time here!! A bag of feed and send me on my way! I met rabbits (a big deal for this QLD'er where they're illegal to keep as pets), highland cattle, buffalo, pigs, donkeys, sheep, llamas, a very cheeky ostrich, emus, kangaroos and a few lambs.

This place is well worth the small fee! closeup animal feeding experience and petting, beautiful surrounds with a well setup venue, friendly staff, and great for a whole morning or afternoon. Something for every age with animals, segways, wine tasting, mini golf! Had a great time with the kids and grandparents too.

There is wine tasting and wines to be purchased as there is an adjoining winery . We took food suitable for a... More

Our second visit to the park & it was just as good as the first. With cute cuddly animals to birds trying to steal my hat, we had a wonderful time & it tired the kids out nicely :-)

We went there last summer to have a look and I can honestly say I would return in a heartbeat. Such a cute and fun place to spend a few hours of your day. The bird aviary is awesome and I can pretty much guarantee that a bird of some sort will land on you. The food bags are cheap... More

This is reasonably priced and not too large a place which meant for me I could spend time with each of the animals, we were free to roam about and interact with the animals. I got to see a koala feed and have a photo with it, feed birds and roos. I'm an animal lover so maybe biased but enjoyed... More

The animals at Glen Forest are all very healthy and it is clear that their owners care for their well being. It is a great place for young kids to be able to feed the local kangaroos and Bird life as well as learn about the animals from the staff.
