Very well organised and late in the summer, so not too many people. Lots of sleepy Koalas around, as well as Wallabies, Bandicoots and colourful bird life. Excellent value and easy walking on forest tracks and boardwalks.

You can buy tickets at the counter. However if you buy 3 parks pass which includes Koala Conservation Sanctuary, Penguin Parade and Churchill Island you will save some $s as it is cheaper to buy them together.
