Set on a huge 60 acres, the park
is home to over 100 different species of
Australian animals. It is here that you can not only see, but hand feed
and really experience close encounters with wildlife. You will be
surprised to find such a diverse range of native animals located only
2km's from the main township of Cowes.
Kangaroos and Wallabies
roam throughout the grounds in a free-range environment, where
you can hand feed and
pat them. You will have the opportunity to feed both the largest
members of the Kangaroo family, the Red Kangaroo and also some of the
smallest, the Parma Wallaby & the Red-necked Pademelon. See
with joeys all year round. View Koalas close-up
from our raised board walk and see them at eye
Many species of birds are also found in the park and they often
fill the area with their distinct calls. Be
amazed by the sheer size of the flightless Emu and Cassowary. See birds
of the night such as the Tawny Frogmouths and various species of Owls.
Colourful parrots, loud Cockatoos and birds of prey big and small can
also be admired.
Kids will be fascinated by Bats that hang upside down, Koalas that perch
in trees and babies that ride in a pouch! They also delight in
discovering the soft fur of a Wallaby and
the rough coat of a Wombat.
A great experience for international and local visitors alike, where you
can view the wildlife that Australia is renowned for and also spot some
animals that are seldom seen.
