  • An excellent wildlife sanctuary about an hours drive out of Melbourne. The perfect place to see native Australian animals in an almost natural habitat. Make sure you take in the Birds of Prey display while you are there it's both fun and educational.
  • Fantastic park. Highly interactive. Very easy to walk around. Helpful volunteer guides. Animals were in immaculate condition and many actually interacted with us. My children enjoyed feeding the birds and the free fight bird show. I loved the Platypus show!! Highly recommended for families especially with young children.
