Very tamed and friendly animals, don't be too afraid of the emus as they're just after food. Excellent range of Australian animals and very close encounters

I would agree with a previous review I read...as we were pulling up to the park, I wondered what we had gotten ourselves into. The entrance doesn't speak for the rest of the park. What an experience! It was incredible to to feed the kangaroos,...More
