What an experience!! greeted by native Australian animals including Koala’s, crocodiles, lizards and snakes. The food was freshly cooked in their unique purpose built outdoor setting amongst native trees - just beautiful. The delicious Aussie Bush Tucker consisted of local mackeral infused with lemon myrtle, Pancakes served with native Rosella jam, Bacon and eggs, Beef sausages with bush tomato chutney,... More

Sunday, Wednesday & Friday breakfast I would recommend booking as soon as you book your holiday. Don't leave it till you get to Magnetic Island as we missed out. But breakfast does not include the group tour (I was told). We paid for a family tour (2 hours) plus a koala photo cost $102 (approx.)

Breakfast with the koalas? what a joke. We took our two small daughters to this and were bitterly disappointed. To begin with we were presented with a jjuice on arrival except the kids. How mean1 They said it was because they might drop the glass. I have a simple solution. Plastic cups. They are cheap and easy to obtain. My... More

We took the kids on this only to be told they were too small to hold the koala so we had to wait around while everyone else had photos taken and after that our kids got a "pat" of the one koala. The food was good and the young people serving the food and the young lady who helped people... More

At $80 for a family ticket plus an additional $18 per person to hold a koala and have a photo taken we opted against visiting. Their website suggests that half of the two hour tour is taken up with a walk.

We had a short getaway at Magnetic Island and we decided to book the Champagne Bush Tucker Breakfast with the Koalas and it didn't disappoint. We all enjoyed ourselves and it was a great experience for the children. They had a variety of animals we could interact with from Koalas, lizards, birds and snakes. The kids were so preoccupied by... More

Didn't really notice the breakfast as we were too busy interacting with the parrots, lizards and Pebbles the koala. Lovely friendly staff and a great start to the day!

Definitely worth a visit for the sanctuary tour and holding the koala but take a tip and skip the breakfast. For $32 per head you expect a pretty decent breakfast buffet, but this was a disappointment. Sausages, bacon, French bread, pancakes, tea bags and coffee bags, bottle juices - ho hum, standard fare. Buy breakfast elsewhere and just come for... More

This was a great experience but probably wouldn't do it again. The food was yum and the host/guide was funny and helpful (albeit a little bossy!). For the money we expected a bit more of a tour of the wildlife not just a few lizards and the koala, but it was enjoyable and our 3 year old got to hold... More

Wow! A wonderful experience. The breakfast was a lovely buffet with a good choice and some typical Australian gourmet tucker. Cook your own toast on the campfire, and try a jaffle. But then the fun begins with an array of reptiles - snakes, lizards, squirrel gliders, birds and more, joining you in the courtyard. The handler is a great bloke,... More
