Potoroo Palace reviews
We loved visiting Potoroo!! Neat and tidy setup with a little souvenir shop, lots of animals to see and visitors can watch animals being fed by staff. more »
Over-run grounds with weeds everywhere, with very few animals, told they were there but none you could see, enclosures overgrown and empty, train not going around and poorly managed. $60 waste of... more »
What a beautiful sanctuary. So peaceful and calm. The kids really enjoyed seeing and learning about the different animals. The cafe was lovely too and it was great to have several vegan food options. Definitely recommend visiting with or without kids.
Beautiful sanctuary only few kilometers from Merimbula. Feel the love & care for some of the most beautiful and unique animals that habit this gorgeous country. Well worth the visit & experience the serenity & natural beauty it has to offer.
