I visited the park yesterday with 2 friends and we had a fabulous time. The park itself is relatively small, however the experiences they offer are great. We were able to get up close and personal with a lovely koala and give her a stroke for a small extra fee ( not allowed to 'cuddle' koalas in Victoria ) whilst having our picture taken and being allowed to take our own pics which is usually unheard of! We fed the kangaroos and were able to wander around their enclosure. We also had out picture taken with 2 dingoes who were great fun.
The lady who did the talk about the koalas and dingoes was very informative and clearly knew all the animals that were in her care well and showed a genuine interest in the work she was doing. She was very helpful, willing to answer questions and did not rush us with either our koala or dingo experience. There were lots of other animals to see also and a pirate golf course which we did not use.
All the staff at Maru were very helpful and polite. The toilets were clean there was a large seating area for food; inside and out. We did not buy a meal but had a very generous ice cream which was less than $12 for 3 cones which I thought was reasonable.
All in all a great experience and if I am fortunate enough to be back in Melbourne next year I will most definitely be returning!!
Thank you Maru for helping make a really memorable day!!
