Their interactive animal show is at 1.00 p.m. daily. Hold a Koala for only AUD15.00 extra and enjoy their swimming pool, rainforest, bushwalk and barbecue areas. Get really close to their crocodiles and other reptile friends like large pythons, lizards, turtles and skinks. Their many parrots want to have a chat and dance. They receive no government funding and rely solely on admission and donations. Cooberrie Park is the only Wildlife Sanctuary in Central Queensland that takes care of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife; the animals appreciate your support.
