Koala Park Sanctuary is located just 30 minutes from Sydney CBD on 10 acres of rainforest and native gardens. The park offers hands on animal experience for kids and grown ups.
You will find not only koalas, but also peacocks, kangaroos, penguins, emus, wombats, echidnas, dingoes, native birds and many others.
The park offers several shows throughout the day
Koala Feeding – you can cuddle, pat and get a photo with a cute koala. Feeding times are 10.20am, 11.45am, 2pm, 3pm
Penguin Show – 11am, 3.30pm
Wombat Show – 10.15am, 11.30am, 2.15pm, 3.15pm
You can also feed the kangaroos – simply buy some food when you enter the park, then head straight over to the kangaroo enclosure. At only $2 per bag, the feeding experience is definitely worth it.
The park is open 9am to 5pm daily and free parking is available near the entrance. Entry to the park is $26 for adults and $15 for kids.
For lunch, the park has a kiosk, which serves not only snacks, drinks, ice creams, but also sandwiches and hot meals. Alternatively reserve a BBQ prior to your arrival and you can cook your own lunch.
If you have a group of friends, you can organise a guided tour. Booking forms are available on the Koala Park Sanctuary website.
Staff at the park are very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. If you have friends visiting from overseas, it’s definitely a must visit, as it is one of very few places in Sydney, where you can really interact with the animals.
Koala Park Sanctuary can also host your children's birthday party. For more information, contact them by email or via their website.
