One of the best places in southern Australia to see native fauna, this wildlife park is full of kangaroos, dingoes, lyrebirds, Tasmanian devils, bats, koalas, eagles, snakes and lizards. The Platypus House displays the shy underwater creatures, and there's a daily interactive show at 11.30am (plus 2pm weekends). The exciting Birds of Prey presentation (noon and 2.30pm daily) features huge wedge-tailed eagles and owls soaring through the air. Admission for kids is free on weekends.
