We had a great time here. Arrived at 10am and all the animals seemed keen to see us, probably for the (free) animal food bags. The pademelons, wallabies and kangaroos are quiet and gently eat from your hand so are great for children. The emus...More

The Park is a Jewel in the Crown with Australian Animal's. You can hand feed the Kangaroos, Cassowarys Emu's and the like. The Park apart from the animals needs a spruce up to attract more visitors such as new Signage, Cafe for Lunch ?....

I've visited Phillip Island Wildlife Park in February 2011 and again in March 2018---loved both visits. With a paid admission, you're given a bag of feed for the animals which you will want to save for the kangaroos. I recommend saving the food and walking...More

Great place to have a close encounter with kangaroos and wallabies. You can feed the kangaroos and wallabies, also you can see more animals like wombats, birds, etc.

I know this place has some varied reviews but having visited today I was impressed and think some recent reviewers may have had unrealistic expectations. It’s a big property and we thought it looked well maintained, yes the signage at the entrance needs a repaint...More

We have been here a few times in the last few years and although the place is looking like it needs a bit of a spruce up it is a great experience. The kids love handfeeding the animals.

Lots of Australian animals on display. Only issue was signage was very poor and often people didn't know what they were looking at.

Been here many times in the past twenty years and it has remained frozen in time. The only exception is the back section for the kangaroos. It needs an upgrade. To see the eagle keep slamming into the wire fence was a little upsetting. The...More

I went here, mainly to see koalas, and enjoyed looking at other animals and feeding some that looked like quokkas. There are free roaming geese and kangaroos. This park has a large variety of animals in very natural surroundings that are seen up close. Well...More
