Had loads of fun feeding the kangaroos as they were free range and very friendly. Despite the greedy emus trying to snatch the feed from us constantly. Entrance fee for family was very affordable, less than $50 for family of 4. There were wallabies, ducks, geese, birds that can be fed too. We visited enclosures of dingo, Tasmanian devils, wombats,... More

A huge zoo where you can interact with many of the animals like wallabies (you can feed them), kangaroos and emus. So many animals and some roam free. They have nearly all the typical Australian native animals including dingos, cassowary, quokkas, platypus, tas devil and koalas. Lots of cool snakes (caged) too. You can buy a bag of feed and...

I ventured here as it is one of many nature reserves and is well maintained and accessible. The board walk meanders around the headland opposite the Nobbies gives great views even when the clouds are out. It was fun to penguin spot as during the day they hide in their burrows or under the board walk, I didn't do the... More

A wonderful experience for the family, but the grounds appear to be neglected. Dead trees everywhere and a bit of a desolate feeling. The grandkids did not seem to notice, but we did. Recommend you wear boots, or make sure you have a change of shoes in the car as you will leave there 3 inches taller due to the... More

A sad visit. Whilst the staff were friendly, and the range of animals was impressive, the whole impression was of a run down and depressed park. The beautiful birds were the most upsetting, in filthy cages and some, clearly in distress or with skin ailments. I appreciate some of these birds are "rescued" from private ownership, however I cannot believe... More

We had a lovely afternoon here. All the wallabies and kangaroos are great with the kids. They got to feed so many of them. Only complaint was the barren nature of some of the walk, with mostly dead trees and no vegetation. The warnings about the emu's are true so avoid if you have young kids. Great place to see... More

We had a great time at the Wildlife park, it was so interactive. Fantastic being able to feed most of the animals and having them come up to you with out being scared was just wonderful. My son had a great time patting and feeding them all. I recommend bringing an old pair of shoes to wear because you're bound... More

There are a few farms on the Island but after reading the reviews we decided on the wildlife park, sure the park is bit run down and there aren't many staff around but if you can get past that you will have a great day. Animals as far as the eyes can see, feeding many of them by hand and... More

Had a great day out here, make sure you wear shoes that cover your feet. Loads of animals to see and seen them all (not like Melbourne zoo), even got to feed some. Just before you enter there is a list of what animals you can feed and which to be careful around. When you do feed the kangaroos watch... More
