  • Gotta love koalas. I got to hold one for the first time! And boy, what an experience! Too bad my photo did not turn out as I expected it to be. The staff were in a hurry to shoot and take the koala off of my grip! But overall I enjoyed every minute of my visit. Very laid-back atmosphere indeed. Not the usual crowded, too-much-to-see and things to do places.
  • By far the best sanctuary and wildlife place I have been too. They look after their animals and the dog show is great. The lorikeet feeding event at 4pm is a must. I would go here over Australia zoo any day. Please visit these guys and support their efforts. You wont regret it!
