We went to this place for breakfast with the birds and a walk around. Food was average but experience was unbeatable. We fed the kangaroos, went bird watching, watched the crocodile feeding, and walked around for almost a half a day. Highly recommended.

I recommend this habitat because of the openness to the animals and birds-petting and feeding the kangaroos and seeing babies in pouches up close. We did go to a preserve in Sydney but spread out and not as vegetated but with more types of animals.

We had a wonderful morning at the Habitat and, given that admission fees cover five days of entry, we'll be going back a couple more times. We were told the animals behave differently at different times of the day/night, so we'll want to return. My wife fed a kangaroo, we got to hold a koala for a photo ($20--which included... More

At $34pp (adult), may seem expensive; but the admission price is good for 5 days entry. As animal lovers, we welcomed any chance to visit the habitat. It isn’t as big, nor is it laid out like a traditional zoo. There is opportunity to interact w/ kangaroos, wallabies and birds of all kinds. Our favorite activity was buying a $2... More

Really nice little wildlife sanctuary. Had a great time here. You can walk through the enclosure where you can feed the animals and the wander right up to you. You can hold a koala if you want. Good little place to make a visit to.

We went to the breakfast with the birds, was a good meal and included is the entry into the park. Enjoyed every bit of this park, not to big or complicated and you can interact with most the animals.

I recently visited this wildlife park and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The staff are all friendly and extremely knowledgeable and more importantly the animals are well treated and looked after. Thank you to Travis for an interesting koala talk and a fun, thrilling photo shoot with Dundee the snake, Olly the crocodile and Kodi the koala. The facility to have... More

Lots of birds and other wildlife. Take your own lunch as options were very limited and not very nice.
