Who doesn’t love a koala? You can see them up close here along with wallabies, birdlife, snakes and over excited human children haha. Didn’t take long to get through the park but glad we went.

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.
