It was $59 for 1 adult and 2 kids and you could see everything in under an hour, so I don’t think great value for money. The cafe area is nice with the koalas, but after about 10.30 they were moved to another enclosure, so...More

As others have said this is not on the scale of other zoos like Taronga. But it does offer a welcome break with kids. We purchased the tickets that allow you to return unlimited. We took advantage of the talks at 10am and 4am which...More

Cages very small, I felt sorry for the animals and birds, also the poor koalas having to be propped up in tiny pens while people make lots of noise and eat around them, can't be in the animals interest. The encounters meeting snakes etc cannot...More

Many thanks for your feedback. Rest assured Wildlife Hamilton Island does place the welfare of its animals as a high priority and as such we are accredited with the Zoo and Aquarium Association of Australasia where animal welfare is the core focus.

The highlight here was the large crocodile. There are wallabies, cockatoos, pythons, dingoes, freshwater crocodiles and a cassowary. A nice outing.
