“Brilliant”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

Brilliant day out, we went with our Daughter, son in law and two Grandchildren. The park itself is very accessable for pushchairs, wheelchairs etc. We have twin Grandchildren with a side by side pushchair and it fitted through all the gates.
The entry is $195 for a family ticket.
The Grandchildren loved to be able to interact with the Kangaroos and other farm animals, it's lovely to see the animals being able to roam around freely. You can even touch a Koala.
They have lots of shows and feeding times thoughout the day.
We were there for about 4 hours. But it depends on how long you spend in each enclosure.
It was difficult to persuade the Grandchildren to move on to each one as they were having such a good time.
Very enjoyable day out, would definately recomend this wildlife park.

“You will not be disappointed”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

You will not be disappointed. I came to Australia to see Koala bears and I was not diappoint. I know they should be in the wild to be completely free instead of being in the small area they were in. But I loved seeing them. The one we were suppose to take a picture with decided he was done for the day and got down off ot the perch he was on and went on his merry way :) They found a replacement for him and we were able to take our picture with a koala. It was a wonderful two hour we spent at the park. Wish we would have had more time there. It was a stop within a day tour, it was the best part of the day.

“Need to remember its a wildlife park”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

If you want to feed a kangaroo and have a picture with a koala this place is great.
You need to remember though that it is a small wildlife park so we came away thinking animals were in quite a cramped environment.
I'm sure they are fine, I always feel this in parks / zoo's etc.

“Great family day out! Very hands on expereince!”
Reviewed November 5, 2011

It is a fair drive west of the Sydney CBD but very worth the trip! There are animals just literally walking around the park , plenty of Kodak moments! I also highly recommend going to see the crocodile feed demonstration at 10.15am. I wouldn't recommend visiting on a rainy day as it would spoil the experience a little. It was very hot when we went so defiantly wear lots of sunscreens and wear a hat!

“great hands-on experience”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

Although out of the way, my kids have loved this place as it has a large range of animals that you can pat. Rescued kookaburras, tawny frogmouths along with the usual emus and kangaroos. It even has a skua (!)
