  2. Cool animals

    The staff here are just so lovely and friendly. The location is fantastic, nestled by a serene lake and surrounded by native bush. We found that all the activities, including the animal encounters, were reasonably priced, which motivated us to dive into everything the park had to offer. In addition to the standard park entry, we also enjoyed the scaley encounter and the twilight tour, both of which were worth it. I can’t recommend the bird show enough – it was a real treat! If you happen to be in the Brisbane area, make sure to set aside a day for a visit. You won’t regret it!
