“Visit December 2012”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We enjoyed our day at Symbio wild life park, we are from the UK and wanted something less commercial than the larger Zoos, all the animals at Symbio looked happy and well cared for. The best part of our trip was definately meeting Toby the Kuala! We would reccomend this lovely place to any one, we hope to return one day.

“Great Day Out”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Symbio park was our first interaction with native Australian wildlife. The park is great; it's got a good selection of native animals (and others including the Tigers and Red Pandas), large spacious enclosures, and informative and friendly staff. We really enjoyed our day and got to meet the cute Koalas and feed the Kangaroos, Wallabies, Emus, Llamas, Alpacas, Deer and Goats. It was also not too busy, which can be annoying in other parks. Great place to meet the native wildlife, highly recommend it!

“Photos taken by Symbio Wildlife Park staff”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Many good reviews have been written on the Symbio Wildlife Park in Sydney.

On 17 Feb 2013 we visited Symbio Wildlife Park and we had our photos taken at the park by their staff. When you enter the park on the right they is a staff from their park taking photos for visitors either with the koala bear or snake or both at a fee.

We had our photos taken by their staff with the snake and another with the koala bear. After visiting the park and an hour later we collected our photos at the exit counter. One month later our photos turned blurry and brownish. We scanned the photos and emailed to the park for an explanation but they did not response to our email.

Advisable to take your own photos!

“Education for kids”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Not far from the city and only 45 minutes drive by car. This is located before Stanwell Park. The Koala show was good and good knowledge for young kids.

“Place to go on the weekend”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I liked the park. There are a lot of local animals including wallabies, pandas, kookaburra, and etc. They have a big territory and park was not overcrowded as other parks or zoo. It is a good place to go with kids on the weekend.
