As a native Aussie, I thought 'seen one koala seen then all' and set myself up to be bored. I only bought these tickets Bc they were practically free in the three park pass purchase otherwise I would never have bought a family ticket. However, couldn't be more wrong!

For the first time in my life, I actually got to see about five koalas up close and awake!!!! They were so cute and the ranger was great to talk to. My kids loved it and even though we live in the country, so seeing wildlife is nothing to them, they were excited to see koalas up close.

This is a nicely set up place with lots of opportunities for viewing koalas in their habitat. It's probably coming to the end of its life now: the eucalypts around which the boardwalk was built have been pretty effectively stripped and the koalas need to be encouraged in, however, you do feel like the animals are safe and protected (their were Rangers in evidence and moveable fencing to keep us from getting too close), and they certainly have freedom to move wherever they like.

Very Eco, Koala's easy to find in the woodland as staff move signs around to identify where to look, very smart. Great kid friendly and fun.

Went to see Koalas at 4 pm - told more active then. Most were well up in trees, but the longer we were there, the easier it was to see Koalas. There are also wallabies in this park - good photos of both

Had a great visit to see the koalas. We were given good information by the guides who are around the walkways and the views you get of the koalas is excellent. Also good views across the swamp area and wallabies.
