Discover the riches of the Goldfields. See some major attractions, catch some exhibitions at some of Australia's best regional art galleries, or try some retail therapy at specialty shops in the area. Explore villages, indulge your taste buds with fresh food and boutique wines and explore this fascinating area that is rich in history.
Take a walk on the wild side and get up close with the animals. The park is open to visitors, and is especially welcoming to families and flocks of tourists who want a more 'personal' encounter. Spend a leisurely morning or afternoon at your own pace.
On entry pick up a bag of kangaroo feed for $3.00 so you can wander and feed the kangaroos at your own pace. Watch your little ones as the kangaroos have free run here (saying that we've never had any issues)! You'll spot lots of wildlife from emus, koalas, wombats, lizards and a large reptile house. Another highlight here are the keeper talks. Filled with history, facts and in most cases...pats! The animal shows are offered at various times throughout the day (weekends included) and have everything on show from crocodiles, reptiles, koala, wombat or eagle.
