You could easily spend 2 or 3 hours here, seeing Aussie wildlife in a natural setting and hand-feeding kangaroos and emus. You can also be photographed (starting at A$16) holding a koala, a (baby) crocodile, a python, or a wombat. Interesting interactive talks and shows run continuously starting at 10am; one of the most popular is the saltwater-crocodile feeding at 1:15pm (for an extra A$99, you can also personally feed the croc). It also has gas barbecues, a cafe, and a pool.
