Lonely Planet has listed the Central Coast’s Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park as the 8th best animal adventure in the world! Our Walkabout Park is on the Top 10 list alongside places like the Galapagos Islands and Yellowstone National Park. And this world-ranked real life working wildlife sanctuary is right here on our doorstep.
With 80 acres of fox-proof bushland, it is home to kangaroos, koalas, dingoes, pythons, wombats, devils and all their feathery, furry, spiky and scaly friends. Many of the animals have been rescued and can’t be released back into the wild to deal with people, dogs, cats and cars. Instead, they are safe with the rangers at Walkabout Park.
Step into the animals’ world where you not only get a hands-on introduction to Australia’s weird creatures, but you can also feed the alpacas, cuddle the bunnies and meet their other farmyard friends.
Join in activities like boomerang throwing and animal encounters throughout the day, or set off with a map to explore the bush tracks and visit ancient Aboriginal sites, or hire your own personal ranger to take you behind the scenes.
Or book a Wild Sleep Out full of ranger-led night-animal encounters, with your choice of a private eco-cabin or family-sized tent with everything included.
100% of proceeds are spent on the animals and bush, so you are helping to save the planet just by visiting.
