We are a couple in our 60s and yet we felt like kids in a candy store with the number of animals we could see and interact with. We only had an hour here as part of a Blue Mountains tour, but our group of 6 agreed we could have spent the entire day. Unlike other reviewers who judged the state of the park by what they perceived, we actually talked to many of the keepers to understand the care, background of the animals and the philosophy of the park. Many of the animals are part of an Australian breeding program or are rescues. All of the nocturnal animals we saw had places to retreat to, and many were taking advantage of those places when we visited so we knew that they were usable. They made sure the koalas were allowed to sleep undisturbed most of the time with only one or two brought out for petting for brief periods. The only animals who really needed more space were the birds, but it is hard to provide adequate space to replicate a fully free environment. Many of the kangaroos and a goodly number of birds were allowed to roam free. Overall the people who manage this park provide a great experience and they truly care about the animals there.
