    Wild Evening Out
    (then home)

    Spend an evening with the animals. Head out with your ranger to spotlight for wildlife. Play tug-of-war with the devils. Finish the evening with a roaring campfire (weather permitting). All you need to bring is a picnic, good walking shoes, and a torch!

    Wild Sleep Out
    (tent)

    The Australian bush comes alive after dark. Stay overnight in the bush with the animals. This is 'comfortable camping' with your tent set up ready for you when you arrive. Choose whether to just enjoy the experience and 'do your own thing', or join a ranger-led tour. Bring a picnic or sign up for an Aussie sausage sizzle and bush breakfast.

    Bush Survival
    (rough & rugged)

    The bush without the luxury. An opportunity to really 'go bush' - off the tracks where visitors don't usually get to go. Learn bush-survival techniques* and get VERY close to nature. You do need to be fit and ready to get dirty. Adults age 16+ only. (*This is NOT going to teach you everything you need to know to survive in the bush, but it is an awful lot of fun.)

    Life's Too Short to Stay at Home

    You never know who you will meet

    Walkabout Park protects the natural bush home of a mob of free-ranging friendly but wild kangaroos and their ground-dwelling and tree-living mammal friends, over 100 types of birds come and go such as the Superb Lyrebird, Laughing Kookaburra and Glossy Black Cockatoo, and more than 40 types of reptiles and frogs live in the rocks and ponds from the Diamond Python to the Eastern Froglet.

    Plus most of Austrlia's iconic animal species, from Koalas to Tasmanian Devils and Wombats - many rescued orphaned or injured, or part of 'breed-for-release' programs - are cared for by the rangers in various natural camps.

    Don't worry - it's not real!

    You never know who you will meet

    Sometimes you just need to poke a croc!

    The fun thing about a pretend crocodile is you can poke it with a stick and it doesn't get mad and eat you. Life's Too Short to Stay at Home.
