Where are we going today?

Kids, are you ready for an ADVENTURE! We certainly are, and South Coast Safaris are ready to take you!

South Coast Safaris offer a host of tours and adventures well, on the South Coast of course! It's the perfect way for those older kids and parents to explore the great Australian outdoors, and get out into nature, and maybe spot some wildlife!

Fancy taking to the waters? It's a fun way to see the area from a whole new perspective. They offer canoe or kayak hire, and you can make it as relaxing or as challenging as you like. You might be lucky enough to spot a lively fish jumping out of the water!

Maybe it's a land adventure that you want? Well then, get those hiking shoes on, because there is some bushland to explore! Can you smell the eucalyptus as you walk past, or see a lizard scampering under the leaves below?

Feeling hungry? Just as well South Coast Safaris offer a tasty BBQ lunch on some of the trips - nothing lik putting another snag on the barbie after a long day of activity!

No matter the fitness level of your family, there will be something for you. All of the tours you can take at a leisurely pace, or you can really push yourself for that physical challenge.

The tours and experiences vary in length and activity level so it's easy to find a trip type which suits your group.

There is camping and other accommodation on site too, so you can REALLY make an adventure of it!

So what are you waiting for, there is a whole world out there just waiting for you!

    It was amazing!! I was able to pet my favorite land animal!! I pet a tiger cub!!! I also pet a serval cub, a Lynx cub, 2 bear cubs, possum, skunk, groundhog, and2 foxes!! We were there almost 3 hours and we could have probably stayed longer!! My 14 year old daughter didn't want to leave!! The employees were constantly cleaning up the free range areas!! The animals looked well taken care of!!! If I am ever in this area again, I will come back!!!

    This place is great. There are amazing animals and it is a great place to make memories. The price isn't too bad, you'll spend more doing a lot less fun stuff off of HWY 101. Highly recommend for anybody of any age.

    The only animals that this park should be allowed to have are the animals that were roaming free; such as the goats and deer.

    It was so sad to see the Chimpanzee in such a small cage. The Chip sat in a corner with it's back toward everyone. I checked back on him several times. He seemed extremely stressed. The cage only had a couple of ropes, a ball, and a concrete floor. More like a prison. He was all by himself. One of the park attendants told me that they could not expand his cage because they were not able to handle him. I wish someone would...Read More

    We visited 9 years ago and we're able to pet a Lynx and Cougar. we went back with pur 3 kids. They got to pet a red fox, caracal, a skunk and they brought out the tiger. We love this place and will go again one day when we make it back this way from Texas.

    this is a fantastic place with lots of interaction with the animals. the animals, despite other reviews, are interacted with and cared for dearly. although more space would be nice many are content. don't pass up if you have a realistic sense. no it isn't a zoo with the same high end enclosures but still adequate and enjoyable. once in a lifetime experience

All of the large animals needed much bigger enclosures.
