  • Great place. Lots of koalas. Wife really loved it. Easy to get to. Recommend coming early in the day so you can make the most of the $38 per adult and do the cruise and sheep dog and farm animals. We only spent 2 hours but I think coming earlier is better especially if you have kids. Staff are nice always off to take pics. Nice place.
  • This is a place everyone has to visit when they come to Brisbane. You will enjoy a great time bonding with the animals and nature which is worth every penny. Simply just having a picnic or going on the cruise are just a small part of the overall fun in this place. We came here during our honeymoon and really enjoyed feeding the parakeets and kangaroos. It was also our first time carrying and taking photos with a real koala which was a treat. Having said that, it would be wise to ensure the tables and chairs outside are clean. Obviously you will get birds and reptiles chilling there while leaves will fall on the tables and chairs too. We will definitely come again in the future when we have the chance.
