Want to see Australia’s unique wildlife in a natural bush setting? Situated on 7 acres of natural bush setting and home to the world’s largest collection of Australian native animals, you are able to get up close and personal with over 2,200 animals from more than 330 different species. Cuddle up to a koala, hand feed kangaroos, emus & wallabies at any time of the day. Meet ‘Ngukhur’ a 4 1/2 metre saltwater crocodile, visit the Ghost Bat & Bilby Nocturnal Exhibit, Farmyard Nursery, Reptilian Pavilion, Tasmanian devils, dingos, echidnas, wombats, little penguins, a diverse range of birds and much more
Ellaslist Opinion: This is heaven for little wildlife lovers, there is plenty of room to run around and plenty of opportunity for a real close encounter with the animals they’ve only seen from a distance at other zoos and wildlife parks. You’ll avoid the queues and parking hassles of Taronga Zoo and it’s only 40 minutes out of Sydney.
