Loved the treetops challenge - first time to try this activity. Staff were great, very helpful and patient. The course set up is excellent catering for beginners with an opportunity to build confidence as you progress through the levels. My teenage kids progressed through all the levels - while the black course was challenging they absolutely loved it. The full course took around 2.5 hours. Enjoyed a walk and train ride around the park afterwards. Very relaxing and lovely surrounds.

This place is AMAZING! Would highly recommend! Naturally goes around in a path so you see all the animals. The animals look so happy and a lot are free to roam around. Loads of kangaroos to sit and feed, they are so friendly and let you pet them. I booked the koala experience where you get to hold one, so so so so cute and loved it. It was a little rushed but the best thing ever. Volunteers are so happy and friendly.

We had a wonderful time. This was our first trip to Australia, and it was so fun to be able to hold a Koala and pet some Kangaroos. The Pelican & eel feeding was also very cool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this activity. Truly a memorable day.

The whole game was full of fun. The safety system is wonderful! The only issue is the gear too smelly, full of previous players’ sweet because there is completely no hygiene clean at all, not to say sanitised.

Fast pickup, and drop off, friendly drivers always able to answer any questions!
