“Billabong Wildlife Park...a great day out with family or friends”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I love spending time at Billabong Wildlife Park, sometimes alone but I always take my visitors to Port Macquarie as it's a great day out at a reasonable price. Educational talks on koala's, monkeys,spotted quolls, fairy penguins, Shrek the crocodile and the beautiful snow leopards. Kiddies can pat the koalas or hand feed the kangaroo's and wallabies and spend time in the large enclosure. There is a nocturnal house with wombats (can watch the wombat sleeping in his burrow thru the glass), flying foxes, possums among other animals. A reptile house with snakes, lizards and terrapins...lots of interesting birdlife, emus, cassowary's and peacocks. I love to watch the monkey's antics and the magnificent dingoes. There are also red panda's as a new addition. The park was a bit run down from the previous owners but the family that have taken it on in the last few years have a lot of vision, energy and have really built it up again. Spend a morning, afternoon or the whole day there and I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed . Take a picnic or food and beverages available for purchase there.

“Dated”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We went to Billabong 7 years ago and again in 2014 and it hasn't changed a lot in that time. We found it quite old, in need of an update in the beginning of the park and the ponds need a good clean. However, as you moved through the park there are new enclosures and new animals going in. The addition of a 'monster croc', snow leopards and red panda is a big plus and more animals are scheduled to be added soon. The dingo and koala petting, kangaroo feeding, informative talks and croc feeding show was a hit with everyone. Reasonably priced too!

“Lovely family friendly wildlife park.”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Billabong Wildlife Park is well worth a visit. It is well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. Plenty of hands on for children and adults alike. You can get close up and personal with the animals. Lovely cafe and places to sit and relax. A lovely day out for our family that did not break the bank. Well done.

“For All Ages”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We have taken several families of overseas visitors to Billabong Wildlife park, and they have ALL enjoyed their visit, right down to a little 18 month old! Easy to find, easy access and easy walking... these things make for an enjoyable visit. Just leave the Pacific Highway at the Wauchope turnoff, and follow the signs. Feed the kangaroos, talk to a koala, eyeball a crocodile... and have lunch there as well! Enjoyable for all of the family.
