I come here often as I am a student of Conservation and an animal lover. I also make it a point to watch the bird and platypus show because each time around there is always something new. I visited recently with my partner who has never been to the sanctuary.
I think I literally dragged him away from the parrots because he enjoyed the close encounters and feeding them haha. The animals all looked very happy and healthy, my partner named the Tasmania Devils his 'buddies' as they all seemed very interested in him and were little show offs. Being behind the scenes as a 'Keeper For a Day', I know what goes into caring for these animals and the hard work shows. The breeding programs and conservation research this wildlife park does is incredible.
I got upset seeing visitors get angry because the animals were 'sleeping'. This is not a circus were animals are told what they can and cant do. They are living happily and happy animals need sleep.
Well worth the price of entry and an excellent outing for children. People who are worried about cost should consider bringing there own lunch to save money. Becoming a Zoo Member will also give you free access to the zoos in Victoria for a whole year.
