Relaxing walk, don't expect to much for your money
took about 20 minutes. In total 8 Koala's we saw
one little guy was active, very cute, but you had to be in the right place at the right time

It might have been too hot for the koalas to be active but we did manage to see about 4 or 5 of them in the trees. Worth a visit though you have to spy hard to catch them among the branches.

Went there for a look with our nearly-4-year-old daughter, there were a few koalas you could see from the boardwalks, but they were a fair way away and difficult to see way up in the trees. We had much more fun at the much more run down wildlife park up the road to be honest. There is a nice bush walk and some interesting info in the centre, but its a bit boring to be honest.

We spent about an hour at this centre and got very close to a number of Koalas, including a mother and joey. The boardwalk was clean and well-kept and the keeper was constantly moving around changing the signs to show where the koalas were. We had interesting discussions with him a few times and he was always smiling and helpful. It was a great visit! One thing that is not too well advertised are the number of the birds in the wildlife area. We also saw wallabies during our walk. The information centre is also very educational.

What a great place to go to see Koalas and other wildlife, like birds, wombats. We saw loads of Koalas here with their joeys as well. Highly recommended. The visitor centre was very informative as well and the boys made boomerangs with aboriginal art skills.
