We stumbled in with low expectations but what a pleasant surprise. The enthusiasm of the staff is contagious and I was engrossed by the animals we saw. You could spend a good hour in the entrance room/shop with the charming white cockatoo! For $5 extra we were guided through their glow worm cave which is well worth it.

Went to see the owls, but there was a lot of other neat things to see. The kids enjoyed it and the time flew.

Glow worms were amazing

What a great place to visit. I went with my grand daughter (9). Everyone was so welcoming and informative. We loved the glow worms the best!
I've always gone past before now.

Good fun, helpful friendly staff and a beautiful safe place for youngsters to roam and explore. We also learned alot about the various santuary animals and of course owls.
