Admire colorful parrots, swans, and pelicans at day, and owls and Tawny Frogmouths at night.

  • Close up with emu and kangaroos and other various wildlife! You can purchase a bag of feed from the park, and feed the animals inside the various areas. The animals are very adorable and most of them shy, but the emu are not shy and will peck your pockets for food. The park is quite big for a day visit and you are free to walk around. Love this park! Update: There are not a lot of visitors when we visited few years ago, so if you don't like crowds, this is a good and peaceful place to be.
  • Our favourite wildlife park. We get a lot of overseas family visiting and we always bring them here. The animals are accessible and really friendly. Being able to hand feed the majority of animals is the best for tourists. Unfortunately the bat enclosure needs some attention though so hopefully it gets updated soon.
