Truly exceeded expectations. Although we'd been out exploring the actual desert for some time, this park gave us new info and enabled us to see critters that were elusive in the wild. Quite a few different birds in so many different aviaries and the nocturnal house was chock full of interesting animals. The guides' talks were great and the free flying bird show a real treat. The whole place is so well organised and all the staff super nice and friendly. Such an interesting and entertaining place to visit. Allow plenty of time. We took 5 and a half hours and could have been longer except they closed!

I wasn't sure about coming here as we live near a few zoos and animal parks, but SO glad we did! This park has the best nocturnal house I've ever been in. The entire park is clean and well laid out. The keeper talks and bird feedings are interesting, interactive, and informative! Recommend arriving early and giving yourself a much time as possible. We thought we'd rush through in 2 hours but once we arrived the quality of the park drew us in and we took our time exploring and listening!

Good for a visit with the kids. We were told people only go there for the bird show, which I thought was a bit underwhelming comparatively to other shows. It’s a good show, you learn some interesting facts about the local birds. The nocturnal house is amazing and a must see. One of the best once we’ve been too. The talks are also recommended.

A great afternoon. Highly recommend attending the talks as they are very informative. The bird show was very special, the birds are so well trained. Of concern are the very small enclosures for the dingo - which looked so bored and the large bustard. Both could do with bigger areas to roam in. I would have loved some of the plants to be named so I know what I'm looking at!

We took our young grandson to experience the Park. He absolutely loved the birds flying in on cue. The nocturnal species are interesting creatures to observe, he liked them as well. All round you would want to stay for a few hours & take the time to explore all that your interested in. Sorry I can't post any photos as I am still learning how to get them online. Remember to put on your walking shoes!!!
