Plan Your Visit

Set on 40 acres of hilly farmland, we ensure that all our animals live in spacious and natural envrionments, making encounters safe and enjoyable for visitors and animals alike.

Aside from the large sancturay fields which house our kangaroo and emu mob and our herd animals, the park features a large petting area where visitors can enter and get up close with Australian wildlife, 3 dingo enclosures, and a wombat enclosure.

While walking the track takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes, average visiting time ranges between 45 minutes to 1 hour. There is no set time limit to your visit in the park.

Getting Here

From Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road: We are located approximately 1 hour’s drive from Apollo Bay (70km), and 13 minutes (15km) before the Twelve Apostles. Follow the signs to the turn off which is approximately 100 metres from the park entrance.

From Warrnambool via the Great Ocean Road: We are located 88 km east from Warrnambool. The route takes you through Port Campbell and passes the Twelve Apostles from where it is only 15km further until you reach the park.

Inland: If you arrive via the A1, take the turn off onto to C166 after passing through Colac which leads through Simpson and meets the Great Ocean Road near Princetown. At the T-junction take a left. We are only a 10 minute drive away.


With Clean Cravings Eatery on our premises, you can enjoy a healthy lunch or snack, barrista-made coffee, and fresh juices before or after your visit to the park.

Picnics can also be enjoyed inside the park in one of our designated areas.

Toilets and washrooms are situated inside the park, near the entrance. At this stage, we do not have disabled facilities, but it is one of our priorities to change this in the near future.


While the walkways through the park are unpaved, most of the track is wheelchair and stroller friendly. Detailed information regarding accessability is being provided at the entrance.
