Except for koala where his tree can be anywhere, it’s not tolerable to see others animals with so small space. To see sad eyes of dingos which try running in their space should not be existing.

A family visit to the wildlife centre was part of our package to the island as a day visit. We did the 10am tour and went back again in the afternoon. The female speaker was so informative. Our kids loved it!

They may call themselves a wildlife park but there really isn’t that much to see and it’s extremely overpriced. You can walk the entirety within 5-10 min and then it’s over.

We visited this “zoo” only because we had some time to kill on our last day. This is a small wildlife reserve and you can see all the animals in about 15 minutes. There is nothing interesting or unique about this place.

The zoo is a fun thing to do for sure but if you have kids, it is much better value to get the mini golf and bowling as a package.

The zoo itself is very small. It is well run and the animals appear to be well taken care of. I did the cuddle with a Koala and would highly recommend it. Well organized.
