Went here on a half day trip. Took the train and it was an easy commute from downtown Sydney. Place is small, but has all the animals you want to see that are unique to Australia. You can buy kangaroo food for $3 a cup...More

We spent about two hours here and enjoyed it. If you can get over the animals being in captivity, you can appreciate that they are being cared for and appreciated. We got to feed the kangaroos and wallabies. We also had our photo taken with...More

I found this so called wildlife park absolutely disgusting the animals looked demented with boredom in extremely small enclosures the penguins pool use the term loosely was smaller than a child’s paddling pool. The koalas were as just used as a tourist attraction with no...More

This was an added bonus to our blue mountain adventure package. We ended up here at the tail end of our tour. Unfortunately it was too hot and most of the animals were tucked away to avoid the heat. But if was nice to be...More

One of the major offerings out of Sydney. My wife and I are wildlife park enthusiasts but this one disappointed. I particularly wanted to see a Tasmanian Devil but someone (hard to find staff) said it had died a few weeks earlier. Plenty koalas in...More

Such a sad experience. Animals in tiny cages; huge crocodile in a 'pen', compared to his size. Penguins with a tiny shallow pool; the Zoo's own information stating they dive to 40 metres. Depressing to see such big birds, casawerry's, pelicans and owls confined in...More

Nice wildlife park. In addition to the kangaroos and koalas you would expect to find in an Australian zoo, there were reptiles, birds, dingoes and farm animals. A nice place for a family. There is a lunch stand. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
