It was the best experience! The koalas are very warm and kind, and the staff who keep them kindly taught me about koalas. You can also see many other native Australian animals such as kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and Tasmanian devils in the game sanctuary. It was impressive to see the animals relaxing in a jungle-like breeding environment. In addition, there are various event programs in the garden. You can listen to the keeper's story and watch the show. We recommend the bird show! It was one of the most amazing and fun animal shows I have ever seen. We also recommend feeding the kangaroos. I touched a fluffy kangaroo and took pictures with it. It was the best experience in Australia.

Staff were amazing I can't walk very far and knew I wouldn't make it around whole Park. A lovely staff member highly recommended bird show I am very grateful for his suggestion I absolutely 100% love it. The birds flying above your head lizards and big birds walking around our feet incredible. The staff are a credit to the Sanctuary.

A great adventure with the whole family to see different variety of animals and price is very reasonable.

Amazing place to take children!!!! But even the adults enjoy it
