Fodor's Review

All kinds of Australian wildlife are housed here, but the namesake marsupials are star attractions. A half-hour stroll through the compact park also puts you eye-to-eye with wombats, wallabies, freshwater crocs, lizards, and snakes in open walk-through enclosures. For an extra fee, have your photo taken with a tame koala.
