Get in touch with wildlife at Maru where you can pat and hand feed many of the animals. Pat a koala and feed the albino kangaroos, see wombats, Tasmanian devils, dingoes, talking parrots and more native animals.
We offer guided entry insde the koala enclosure at the start of every hour and Keeper Presentations on various animals at each hour between 11am - 4pm on weekends and school holidays.
Enjoy a unique 'close encounter' experience, where you can get hands on with a koala, golden possum, dingo or three meter snake.
Then set sail on an adventure at Pirate Pete's Mini-golf as you putt your way around the Pirate Ship, encounter life-size Pirate figures, the Great White Shark and brave the gold mine under the waterfall.
