Fodor's Review

This 87-acre wildlife park features the largest collection of kangaroos outside Australia. The center has more than 300, ranging from a 2-pound brush-tailed Bettong kangaroo to large varieties that may reach nearly 200 pounds each. There are also blue-winged kookaburras and a massive blue-crowned pigeon that is as large as a goose. A 30-minute narrated tram tour is available on weekends. Call in advance for tickets.Children must be five or older to visit.
