We had to pass some time in Carcassone before we headed to the airport. We did explore the city of Carassone (fab place) but knew the 10 year old would want something other than culture to pass the time we had. We found Le Parc Australien and passed a very pleasant 1.5 hours. If we had come at the right time we could have been part of a guided tour for no extra cost. However we turned up and only had limited time due to the timing of our flights. We went around and saw lots of Australian animals. There was lots of information on the different regions of Australia. There were also several picnic areas so you're free to bring your own food as they didn't sell food on site. There is a nice gift shop - the usual stuff and quite expensive but good if you want to pick up something. Over all a very enjoyable experience but I would recommend that they put up signs in languages other than French to help tourists who may not be familiar with the language.

We visited the Park Australian on a very hot day. Our fault. The animals were not to be seen and we asked ourselfs later that day: Who needs an Australian Park in the South of France. Sorry to say that, it was wasted money.

The park isn't spectacular in terms of animals or landscaping. But for small kids (ours 1 and 3 yr old) it's very nice. It's quite small, you won't lose them easilly. There are little puzzles and games everywhere, and there's a nice playground. And ofcourse ostriches and kangaroos!

Overpriced, scruffy do not waste your money. The toys for the kids have seen better days. The only good thing i could say is the animals look in ok condition.

I live nearby but had never visited and after I had I wish I hadn't. The place was expensive to enter and once inside was scruffy, dull and uninteresting. Fortunately the animals were in good condition, otherwise I would have marked it down even further
