Very beautiful national park. You can swim in the lake, hire a kayak our walk through some beautiful walking tracks. While swimming be careful though, as I saw a snake (potentiallya keelback which is not dangerous) swimming in the designated swimming area! The only problem...More

This place is looking very sad! I notice a reviewer from 2015 said that (s)he had seen plans for a redevelopment but it hasn't happened yet except for taking away the aviary (and nothing has replaced it). Visible were 2 kangaroos, 1 wallaby, and a...More

Walkabout Creek is a balm for a busy city driven soul, with ample parking, a lovely open air cafe and a tranquil bird filled reservoir. The cafe which serves a range of breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea offerings is good value. The environmental centre is...More

Unfortunately the place was under renovation whilst we visited... however we did see the small amount of animals in the exhibits and got to pat a kangaroo casually laying out on the lawn. Easy enough to get around. Although, apart from entrance into the exhibits,...More

The same animal sanctuary is s pleasant and nicely kept place, animals seem happy especially the platypus. The whole place does look tired and needs a little facelift. But work is underway. Keepers friendly and cone out at 10 & 2.30 to feed the platypus...More
