At this private park in Sydney's northern outskirts you can feed a kangaroo or cuddle a koala. (Koala presentations are daily at 10:20, 11:45, 2, and 3.) The sanctuary also has dingoes, wombats, emus, and wallaroos. There are sheep-shearing and boomerang-throwing demonstrations.

You can see Koalas many places but getting up close and personal is a different experience. They are NOT your typical cuddly teddy bear. The reality is that they pee on themselves, their fur is wiry like a scouring pad, and they are almost always doped up on eucalyptus leaves. Beyond all that, it's worth seeing for yourself and getting up close and personal with these and other animals you can't experience in any other place.
