About This Deal

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park, 1 Darkinjung Rd Corner of Peats Ridge Road, Calga, New South Wales 2250 Australia

Begin with your Private Ranger who will guide you through the koala habitat and learn about one of Australia's most loved animals, followed by free time to enjoy morning tea (tea, coffee and biscuits) surrounded by roaming kangaroos, wallabies and emu's. If you're lucky you might even spot a wombat or Tasmanian Devil! It's a lovely way to break up the journey on the way to the Hunter Valley.

More about Walkabout Wildlife Park:

Walkabout Park protects over 100 types of bird, such the Superb Lyrebird, the Laughing Kookaburra and the uncommon Rock Warbler. There are more than 40 types of reptiles and frogs, from the Diamond Python to the Giant Goanna and the Eastern Froglet. It is hard for us to know exactly how many animals inhabit the sanctuary as many, especially birds, reptiles and some frogs, can come and go as they please on our 80 acre property.

However, we do have approximately 20 Eastern Grey Kangaroos, 20 Swamp Wallabies, 6 Emus, 20 Tamar Wallabies, 35 Red-Necked Pademelons, 16 Parma Wallabies, 40 Rufous Bettongs and many Bandicoots, along with the many other more secretive critters like Eastern Pygmy Possums and Sugar Gliders that we don't have an exact number for, living free in the sanctuary. We have lots of very special creatures, such as Zoe the Eastern Grey Kangaroo and Tegan the Wallaroo, who make an unusual couple as they hang out together in the underbrush.
