  • A small park but you are allowed to hold a koala, wallabies and kangaroos. Cozy Park But they do have as good as most Australian animals. About $46 P.P. Entrance parking with a big camper as we had went fine.

  • If you want to see only kangaroos and koalas then it's ok. Otherwise there are very few animals. Not really worth the time and money. Other zoo's like Taroonga in Sydney are much better.  more »

  • Great place. Lots of koalas. Wife really loved it. Easy to get to. Recommend coming early in the day so you can make the most of the $38 per adult and do the cruise and sheep dog and farm animals. We only spent 2 hours but I think coming earlier is better especially if you have kids. Staff are nice always off to take pics. Nice place.
  • This is a place everyone has to visit when they come to Brisbane. You will enjoy a great time bonding with the animals and nature which is worth every penny. Simply just having a picnic or going on the cruise are just a small part of the overall fun in this place. We came here during our honeymoon and really enjoyed feeding the parakeets and kangaroos. It was also our first time carrying and taking photos with a real koala which was a treat. Having said that, it would be wise to ensure the tables and chairs outside are clean. Obviously you will get birds and reptiles chilling there while leaves will fall on the tables and chairs too. We will definitely come again in the future when we have the chance.
