  • Located on the top floor with a small delicatessen by the entrance. A fee is required to enter the fenced in Koalas which entitle the customers to hang around with the cuddly marsupials and have their picture taken up close and personal with them. Great opportunity and fun especially for kids young and old alike.
  • Great place to see many wild animals. You can pet and feed kangaroos and wallabies there. They are very cute. For an additional price you can cuddle with a koala and if you are brave enough hold snake around your neck. Crocodiles were very sleepy.
