Fantastic facility staffed with passionate people.

We arrived at 9.15am and went straight to the emu show. We attended all the presentations from then on including the bird show twice, leaving at 5.15pm after the dingo presentation. The day just flew by. The bird show was extraordinary (being from Cairns we have seen many others). The nocturnal world is a high class facility (although be warned that the bilbies and quolls etc do not always come out on demand - although they did for us for one of our 3 visits). Reuben (an Indigenous guide) was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate. This is something you should not miss if in Alice - and we are not people who normally warm to "parks" unless they are National Parks and we are off the beaten track. First class.

Amazing experience in the park

Amazing experience in the park. The park was very well designed and I did enjoy the abundance of wildlife inside. Moreover, the staff are very friendly. When you go to the park, you should not miss the red kangaroos and the bird show. They are amazing!
