Feeding the kangaroos was excellent - koalas extremely cute. Some fantastic photo opportunities - great way to pull in the likes on the social media! A really lovely day.

My colleagues and I had an afternoon in Brisbane and I’m so glad we spent it here. The money goes to a good cause, and where else can you mingle with koalas, wallabies, emus, dingos, wombats and kookaburras. Plenty to do for families on a...More

Lots of Koala's to see and hold. Kangaroos were so tame we petted them. Not a huge park but well worth the visit!

the Koalas are of course the main attraction but there are an abundance of other animals including kangaroos, wallaby's, birds of many breads and reptiles. Just a great place to visit on your own or with a family.

Thank you for your 5 star review. Home to 130 koalas of different life stages, as well as 100 species of other Aussie native animals, there is certainly plenty to see, do and learn about.
