  • On our way to Cowes, this impromptu stop was a pleasant surprise. The park is large with many pathways to explore and get up close and personal with the animals. It will take you about 1.5 to 2 hours....  more

  • 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.
  • Wasn't sure about this place at first but ended up being pleasantly surprised. The staff are lovely and friendly. It's a great place if you enjoy native animals. Well worth the time of a family or couple. Not sure who enjoyed this place more, my kids or wife. Emu feeding is a must!
