We don't get many kangaroos in London so to be able to get so close to these amazing animals and hand feed them was awesome.

The koalas are pretty special too, you can hug one for a fee.

There is so much on offer here. Loads to see and do. We spent 5 hours there, 4 adults and 2 kids under 5. The klds loved it!

Take the boat to the sanctuary, we couldn't do it as it was out of service but it came highly recommended by many. You can take the bus too which was pretty quick (35 minutes) from CBD.

This attraction is excellent, the price may be a litle high to some, but I think it is worth it, holding Koala's, or a crocodile, snake, bird of prey (this had to pay for seperate but had to be bought :) ) and the talks that were given, the keepers really knew what they were talking about and was intersting to listen to them. The bird show was wonderful, never seen such an amazing flight show and got to feed some lovely kangaroos, some were really greedy but wonderful. It is obvious these animals are well taken care of and is a must to anyone to visit while in brisbane.

Smelly n not well maintained. Not much is going on in the park. There is much other similar place where you can cuddle a koala.

Absolutely loved this place! Loads of koalas and kangaroos plus lots of other animals too. there were plenty of shows and demonstrations through the day and plenty to keep you entertained. you could even wander around the kangaroo enclosure and hand feed them - was an amazing experience being able to get so close. you could also pay extra to hold a koala. great day out and worth the money.

Love it! Lots of animals and demonstrations going on all day. Holding a koala was fantastic, so cuddly and cute and there is probably no where else in the world where you can get that close. I highly recommend the birds of prey show and the herding dog demonstrations.
