Koala Kangaroos Picture to koalas Crocodiles Feed kangaroos and wallabies

Very nice place to see cute koalas and take a picture of them, feed kangaroos and wallabies as well . You can see nice birds at Bird World and butterflies at butterfly sanctuary! The Koala garden is not too big but a nice place any way get not too late for a koala photo session, I’ve got there late so couldn't get a photo so do not do that 😬 Nice experience!

A great little zoo, family friendly and good value for money.

As a little family, we were really impressed by Koala Gardens. There was a great variety of animals and reptiles to look at and I especially liked seeing how clean the enclosures were and how well cared for the animals were. Good value for money with free feed included to feed the kangaroos in the admission price. Easy to navigate around with a relaxed environment.

It wasnt bad but it was a bit small for the entry price.

It wasnt bad but it was a bit small for the entry price. If there was a few more animals in the gardens, it would of been worth the entry price. Even though my grandson enjoyed his trip there. Otherwise, the gift shop and all the staff were friendly enough.
