We enjoyed our time at Wildlife Habitat - was very well done, the animals all seemed well cared for and being able to hand feed the wallabys and kangaroos was great. The highlight was the picture with a Koala - while that was an additional cost, it was a once in a lifetime picture for us. The Naturalist working with the Koala was clearly most concerned for the well being of the animal, handed it gently and was quick to take the Koala back if he felt the person holding him was not doing so with enough care. You truly forgot that these 8 acres were next door to a grocery store.

We went to the Wildlife Habitat on our last day to see things that we had missed in the bush, We really enjoyed our time there, the birds and animals are not in cages, you go into their space. the elevated walkways give you a chance to see the birds that like to live in the canopy and to look down on the water bird and reptiles. I will go back next time I'm in the area.

We visiting as a family with two serious animal loving 12 year olds and they just raved about the habitat for days after. Lots of birds, cute wallabies and crocs. The lunch was buffet style, with soup, salads, several meats and fish, and fresh fruit. A keeper bought around a bird for a meet and greet which was fun and we all got a photo (with our own camera). We also hugged a koala which was great! Great value family fun for an afternoon.

A great sized animal habitat which has so many varieties housed there. We learned plenty about the native birds of Australia and you can get very close to the wildlife. Feeding the Roo's was great! Fabulous place to spend a morning.
