They provide a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with native Australian animals such as koalas, snakes & dingoes.

Our Wildlife Zoo offers a more intimate approach, allowing both children and adults to experience these animals in a smaller and more relaxed setting. Entry by Gold Coin Donation.
