Owner description: If you love animals but you don't like to see them in zoos, this working wildlife sanctuary is a wonderful place to visit. Only an hour north of Sydney city, you can meet kangaroos, emus and wallabies living free in 80 acres of Australian bush. Natural camps house koalas, wombats, Tasmanian devils, dingoes, flying foxes, echidnas, pythons, cockatoos and all their feathered, furry, scaly and spiky friends. Follow the walking tracks to visit ancient Aboriginal sites. Open every day from 9am to 5pm, or book an overnight ranger-led Wild Night Out. Fun and safe for children and adults alike. This is not an intense commercial experience with concrete paths and play areas. This is the real Australian bush.

We absolutely loved this place. From the moment we came in we were in the middle of Kangaroos and Emus freely walking around and - following the right instructions - easy to approach and pet.
Every 30 minutes the rangers were sharing information about the other animals with a little talk and the opportunity to see and touch them: koalas, wombats, pythons, etc.

Highly recommended. We were there on the Saturday before Easter and it was very quite and relaxed. Spent almost 6 hours in the park without being bored.

Very Friendly atmosphere . Not overcrowded . Good value . Adored all of the wildlife and especially loved the orphaned baby wombat. Great job thanks to all the caring and hard working staff. You deserve to be supported by the community .

We had a fantastic time. We went on Good Friday and had a close-up encounter with most animals in the park. Staff are welcoming and really devoted to the animals. Price is fair and the animals are well looked after.

I joined the day trip tour way to Hunter Valley from Sydney, and stopped by Walkabout Wildlife Park in the morning.
It was so nice to visit there, we could meet adorable Australian animals including a Koala, and Kangaroos. Especially, a Koala, it was so cute we could touch it and take a pic with. This time I went by alone but I hope to see them once again and take my family, in the future.
p.s. Staff are really nice, thank you so much...

Visited with relatives from the UK and although it is small we found it to be good with only small number people compared to hundreds at the bigger wildlife parks. Brilliant personal service and every half hour they do interactiobs with native animals with great photo opportunities. Definitely recommend this place to overseas visitors and price is reasonable.
