Phillip Island Wildlife Park Reviews
Although reviews were mixed, we decided to go here instead of the koala reserve. The place looks a bit tired, but there is lots to see. The reptiles house is interesting. Lots of other animals and bir... more »
The Wildlife park had a good selection of animals some enclosures were good but a lot were small and boring for the animals causing many of them to pace along the walls. There was also a lot of caged ... more »
This a great place to visit with family and young kids. It's recommend to arrive as early as possible before it's too hot and the animals become less active. Entrance fee is not too expensive and each ticket is purchase comes with a bag of animal food. There's a nice verity of animals and you get get really close to some of them. The place is a bit old and does require some maintenance work and some upgrades. There's a lot more potential to this place if the owner will ever decide to do something about it. On the other hand, that's is probably why entrance fee is not too expensive.
We went there many times and think it is a great place for family and children to go. The park have more than 100 species animals and you can feed the kangaroo by hands. $19pp, I can’t say it is in a great value, but it worth this price. The environment inside is quite natural and the animals are so lovely. It is recommended cause it is very different from what you see in MEL zoo.
