  • Fabulous sanctuary where the animals seem to be quite free and well treated. I really liked that the kangaroos have a lot of space and a dedicated quiet area for them to chill when they have had enough of human interaction. The bird's cages could be bigger, although I am not an expert in animal welfare. The koalas looked great and the cars taker rotated animals often for the pictures which is brilliant!
  • Best place to feed kangaroos and see koalas in Australia! So many koalas. I especially liked the local zoo keeper short guidance information activities, make sure you go to their website to check the times beforehand/just listen to them inviting you through the speakers. Great place to spend a few hours. Also! Great if you are interested in local endemic species of Australia, like platypus, Tasmanian devils, wombat etc.
