Koala holding was alright but they charge you another 20 bucks after we already paid 50 for two! The animals look sad and the park is not well maintained. A lot of cages don't even have a sign about the animals living inside on it....More

Get up close and personal with kangaroos, wallabies and koalas. Small park but still a great time and worth the visit.

Large variety of wildlife to see, I would put this as one of the major attractions! Surprised that it isn't highlighted as such. A must see on Kangaroo Island.

Our recent visit to this wildlife park turned out to be a very distressing experience. The animals seemed 'dejected', had virtually nothing that resembled their natural habitat, insufficient water and the cages for the birds were very small. It was very hot while we were...More

Kangaroo Island had to be the highlight of our trip when we visited Australia but this "park" was just a really sad, sad place to be. Going from seeing these same animals out in their natural habitats, free roaming with their families to seeing them...More
