"This is such a hidden gem of the Whitsundays! There are many places that you can meet native animals around Australia but this is a very authentic intimate setting in such a small group. We cuddled koalas, fed little kangaroos and held a baby crocodile! The animals are very well looked after and the family business is very passionate about what they do, thank you I will be back!"
"We have been driving around Australia looking to meet Kangaroos and are so happy to finally be able to stroke and feed the kangaroos, the baby are so cute! "
Klevis Mathers
