This 4.6 hectare/11 acre park is the world’s oldest and largest sanctuary, founded in 1927. See koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, wombats, echidnas, reptiles and the only platypus in captivity. This is one of the few venues in the world where you can hold a koala (own cost). There are daily free shows and you can feed kangaroos (some with a joey in the pouch) and meet colourful Australian lorikeets and cockatoos. A place of joy!
