Get up and personal with Australian wildlife!

Upon the many activities to do in Australia, we found a place where the public could get up and personal with the Australian wildlife. We found an interactive zoo! Although there are many zoos like this all over the globe, this is one of the few that includes kangaroos!

Let’s face it! The main species that people want to see when they visit Australia are the kangaroos and koalas. The Oakvale Wildlife Park is located in Salt Ash NSW, Australia and is a perfect spot to attain quite an experience.


Kangaroos are indigenous to Australia. Many Australians say that the kangaroos are just like the deer in America. They tend to over populate and jump across roads without notice. There are also other indigenous species in Australia such as wombats, koalas, and wallabies.


The wildlife park offers several shows such as cow milking, bottle feeding baby farm animals, tractor trailer ride, koala talk and patting, reptile show and patting, tasmanian devil talk, and cassowary talk (Oakvale Wildlife Park, 2019). By the main entrance, there is an eatery, a cafe, and a souvenir shop.


Unfortunately, we missed majority of the shows when we arrived. We still were able to play with some of the kangaroos and many of the other animals in the park. Petting the wallabies was my favorite part of the entire experience. These adorable little animals just couldn’t resist the attention.


Some of the animals in the park had some interesting personalities. We saw a cow that just begged for food every time we came near it. We managed to get a picture as well.

If I ever get the opportunity to go back, then I would definitely be there early enough to attend all the shows. This was one of the best attractions that I have ever partaken in.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you!

Hello! I was born and raised on a small island called Saipan for 18 years. Shortly after my high school graduation, I joined the United States Air Force. In 2016, I separated from the Air Force and moved to Denver, Colorado. In June 2017, I took a contracting job up here in Alaska. Since then, I have been living and experiencing the wonderful lifestyle of being up North!
