Such a fantastic place, highly recommended for visitors to Australia to see the diversity of the flora and fauna. My guest totally enjoyed the experience and seeing most of the animals and birds and reptiles in their natural settings. Covid may have impacted some of the exhibits but overall an awesome place even for one who lives here and has seen a lot of outdoor Australia!

Don’t go on a 35d day! There are bbqs available if you wanted to take your own meat, otherwise cafes , there are plenty of drinking fountains as well. If there were a few of you there’s plenty of lovely picnic spots. Very few people during the week so not at all crowded. The bird show was fantastic.

Lovely sanctuary. Lots of kid friendly activities to keep the young ones occupied as you wander around the park

Beautiful and peaceful bush land setting showcasing Australian animals and birds.

Good thing to do as you get a broad cross section of Australian wildlife.
