  • This little neighborhood zoo was amazing. We got to get up close and personal with koalas and lots of kangaroos. The focus is on native animals of Australia. It doesn't have lions or tigers but it does have enchidnas and wombats. Our kids loved feeding the kangaroos, which cost $2 per cup. We went when the zoo first opened so the animals were hungry. They were not as interested when we tried again in the afternoon. We had a lot of fun, we would really suggest it to anyone in the area.
  • This is a great little park. While most people who came to the park were there for the Koalas and Kangaroos (myself included) I found the birds to be absolutely incredible! There was an incredibly wide range of birds from Australia and beyond that were just phenomenal to see. This park won't take you all day to explore so if you have a half day or are on your way to the Blue Mountains it's a great stop.
  • I purchased tickets online and it was quicker to get in then the others waiting to buy their tickets at the entrance. We had a very enjoyable day and the park is so clean and tidy. We enjoyed the animals and birds and loved that they were able to roam free. All the animals seemed happy and well looked after. Prices were reasonable and service was excellent. Will definately visit again. Would recommend to anyone.
  • If in Sydney or nearby, go for a fun, hands on experience with lots of local animals! Don’t let the necessary train ride intimidate you. Information booth employees at station were very helpful. Trains are clean and quiet. Signage in stations and trains are helpful as well.
  • Very small, however if you are going with kids they'll love it. Feeding kangaroos and wallabies were the best part. The park also has one crocodile, dingoes, Tasmanian devil, wombat, emu, southern cassowary etc. Also the place has got goats, sheep, pony etc. Staff were really friendly and toilets were nice and clean. Would I go again, absolutely yes.
