“Breakfast with the birds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Wow what a start to the year.....had breakfast with the birds at the Wildlife Habitat. Was great being so close to the animals and birds. Feeding the kangaroos, meeting Jacko & having my picture with Cody the koala were the highlights.

“Gem of a place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have visted many wildlife places, but this is a real gem. You really do feel 'in the middle' of it all with their three different areas - wetlands, grasslands and rainforest. I think what really made a difference here was the attitude of the staff. Everytime you came across any staff, they always asked how you day was going/was everything ok/did you need help. What a beautiful place. All the animals looked really well cared for with clean living environments and food areas clean and well stocked. Liked - being in the centre rather than looking into zoo enclosures. Disliked - leaving :)

“Worth a half day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Loved learning about the local wildlife. Paid a good amount to quickly hold a koala so we could get a picture. Hand fed wallabies, held lorakeets and enjoyed seeing our first cassowary bird. Very nice place.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

What a brilliant place. Thought we would spend a pleasant hour or so and spent most of the day. So close to wildlife we had often never seen before. We went at the appointed feeding tour times and none of the birds etc were shy. It was amazing. We signed up for lunch with the birds also as we were so enjoying the place.This place was the highlight of our trip. It was not like a zoo, felt like we were really in the animals habitat. Funniest thing was a tiny long legged bird who was chasing people along the path way in the wetland habitat.
