Take the whole family!

Alternatively, go and spend the day exploring the “Amazing Animal Armor” self-guided trail, specially designed for children to explore the park’s nature and animals while capturing unforgettable moments with your favourite creatures.

Spring is such an exciting time to visit the park, when the animals are more active and there are lots of baby animals starting to appear. And the best bit is you can get up close, immerse yourself in nature and connect with some of our most well known and loved animals.

While koalas steal the spotlight, don’t miss the chance to hand-feed water birds, snap a photo with kangaroos, or book a cockatoo encounter. Their friendly emus are also eager to meet visitors.

Who will be the star of your next selfie?
