Best part of our vacation. Loved the kangaroos. Well worth the visit. The workers were all very friendly and informative. Recommend renting a golf cart to get around which are available at the facility. Cave excursion was educational and easy to get around in.

We were expecting something amazing with a $26 admittance fee. Most zoos I have been too are much cheaper, and nicer! The best part is the chance to walk with and pet kangaroos. The kangaroo whisperer claims it is the only zoo where you can...More

First things first...the attraction to this place is the kangaroo exhibit. I mean, where else can you go to interact with, feed, and pet kangaroos? It truly is the highlight of the visit. Now on to the reason for a four star review. Without a...More

If you can do only one thing in the area, this might be the best because of the variety. For one admission price, you get to hike through a small but interesting cave, pet kangaroos and emus, have lorikeets swarm you (assuming you spend a...More

Get the Groupon and this becomes a great deal, not sure I would find it a good value if we paid full price but where else can you feed the kangaroos and wallaby and have Lorries land on your head? That right there made it...More

I've been twice and spent about 2 hours both times. It really depends on you. You can spend all day there, doesn't cost extra, once you pay you can also leave and come back. We left and ate and came back for the cave tour.

$28.50 adults $15.50 kids Groupon provides a good discount. Full price is definitely way overpriced.
