Amazing venue to spot Koalas up close and personal. There is 2 tree top walks that have an area that the koalas generally sit in. These areas provide close-ups with the koalas

What a brilliant facility. Kids loved it. Easy for Pram. Will visit again this year. We only stayed an hour because it was closing but I would definitely stay for 2-3 hours next time

2 Boardwalks - one with 4 Koalas and another with 5 Koalas. Bought 2 family tickets at $32 each, $64 total. Spent 30 mins or less there... somehow it feels slightly poor in value, but that's just me. Thanks.

The whole program is fantastic and in particular the interactive projected part. Here you can swim with orcas, tickle the tummy of a leopard seal and appear to be in icy scene. The whole program is educational and should not be missed.

With a family with 3 kids this was very over priced. We were very disappointed could only see 2 Koala's from the price we paid to get in. that were set up for the public to see on the walk

We headed to the Koala conservation centre.This was a bit dull and didn't really live up to my expectations. After walking through the entire place we spotted only 5 koalas sitting high up. They are quite shy and prefer their treetops and branches.

You can buy tickets at the counter. However if you buy 3 parks pass which includes Koala Conservation Sanctuary, Penguin Parade and Churchill Island you will save some $s as it is cheaper to buy them together.
