Fodor's Review

This 22-acre sanctuary shelters wombats, dingoes, wallabies, endangered bilbies, snakes, lizards, and numerous birds, such as cassowaries, emus, kookaburras, and cockatoos. There are 10 wildlife shows per day, including crocodile and cassowary feedings, venemous snake presentations, and turtle racing. Thrill-seekers can book a personal croc-feeding experience, with or without souvenir photo.
