Hugging koalas and kangaroos!!! If that’s what you want to do this is your place. They are every where and so precious. You can feed them- pet them- take pictures with them. Fun place to go and fair price!!!

About 20 minutes from the heart of Brisbane it is a must for tourists. Lots of animals with Kangaroos in an open enclosure. Bird display impressive. Can hug a Koala. Not huge but allow at least 3 hours.
