    Love a zoo – and our kids share this enthusiasm. Symbio wildlife park is much like a zoo – a small, but thankfully growing area of enclosures and habitats. The service here is outstanding – see photo of young lady giving us the two thumbs up. We were told the camera equipment had broken – so koala encounters were to be photographed on our “devices”. Everyone has a phone these days with a camera in it – so not really a big problem. The keeper took a tremendous family shot – our son was hiding around the back. I managed to get a few good shots of the wildlife on my own – but I was really impressed by my daughters image of the praying mantis. Which she took at the well appointed lunch area. Some of the facilities may have been a bit old and rusted, but this did little to dampen our enthusiasm for feeding the kangaroos and the goats. This feeding the goats made for quite the funny gif – hahaha! The tiger feeding was both fascinating and sad. Tigers may just fall into extinction if we as consumers don’t do something to reduce the demand for Palm oil. It’s the production of Palm oil that destroys the tigers habitat in Sumatra. Don’t miss the reptile show – the keepers at Symbio are passionate about their jobs – and it was abundantly clear in the presentation. My lovely wife +Sandra Grant came face to face with a Burmese Python – one of the largest snakes – and recoiled in horror. As you would. Well worth the trip – especially if you live on the south west side of Sydney.

    For families that want a way for the young ones to get up close and personal with Kangaroos, Wallabies and Koalas this is a good alternative to Taronga Zoo or Featherdale Wildlife Park. The park itself is quite small, but this is what attracted us to it, it meant we could get from one enclosure to the next without a big hike like at Taronga. There is more variety of animals than at Featherdale and the Kangaroo/Wallaby feeding area is really good for kids of all ages.They are currently expanding at the time of writing this review and will soon have a new Africa (Lemur) enclosure.

    Symbio Wildlife Park is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon when looking to be close to Australia’s wildlife. Every time I have visitors from overseas I take them to Symbio for them to interact with Emus and have a close look at a Huntsman spider 🙂

    We had a great time. Our two sons loved the animals.. especially the meerkats, red pandas, tigers, and patting the kangaroos. There are lots of others animals. Looking forward to the finished refurbs

    There was a lot of construction going on when I was there (December 2013) and it seemed very overpriced for what it was. The native wildlife feeding was quite limited (only kangaroos and wallabies) and the koala interaction was only petting them while they sat on artificial trees (I remember holding them when I can on a primary school trip in the 80’s). The staff weren’t particularly friendly and not very informative.
