We had a great time cuddling koala bears, feeding kangaroos, cassowary birds, turtles and handling snakes lizards wambats. We watced the keepers hand feed HUGE crocodiles from the safety of a caged van but it felt like we were in there with them.
We were also impressed by the care the keepers clearly had for their animals. For example the koala ran out of its cage to be petted. All the animals were clearly well cared for.
Well worth the trip to the Wilderness to get there.

Hill Inlet

Reviewed By ael l - Brisbane, Australia

About a 10-15 walk up to the location, well worth it! Just watch out for flies! Once there you really are taken aback by the sheer beauty. It feels like you're looking at a photoshopped picture! Only downside is was how busy it was but i guess that's to be expected! Would definitely recommend!

Lake McKenzie

Reviewed By Mon55 - Brisbane, Australia

We walked the 12.5km (one way)from Kingfisher Resort to here and while exhausting the sight of this lake at the end made it worthwhile.The path is well set out and easy to follow. Only walkway 2 is open at the moment. The water is very inviting and starts shallow and becomes quite deep. The sand is so soft - silica sand. It is a touch of paradise. Having a 4WD would be much better and leave more time for exploring. A must visit when on Fraser Island.

I love bats, so it was no surprise to my partner or I that I wanted to go visit The Bat Hospital. We took an afternoon tour with Jenny and one other person and I LOVED it! I learned so much about bats and it...MoreGlad you enjoyed the visit.

Noosa National Park

Reviewed By Xante - Sheffield(UK)

Everyone has Noosa on their list so the place gets overcrowded. The National Park is a great asset and the rangers do a great job in maintaining the area. The headland walk is a must do activity with some amazing scenery.
Boiling Pot and Hells Gate are key attractions along with the beauty of Alexandria Bay. Don’t do this walk without a camera or smartphone!

Mooloolaba Beach

Reviewed By elbee4wd - Sunshine Coast, Australia

We just love walking along the sand each morning at Mooloolaba Beach. First stop is the little coffee shop (Hustle and Flow) under the Surf Lifesaving Club. A lovely Turmeric latte, a sit on the wall watching all the lifesavers doing there morning routine and general people watching while we finish our drinks. Then it's off down to the waters edge for a walk along the wet sand and out to the spit and back. What a way to start the day.

Carnarvon Gorge

Reviewed By HIstvan - Paty, Hungary

I've spent two days in the Gorge and walked all the tracks and really enjoyed it. Walks are well maintained and easy to follow. You don't really have to walk uphills on any of them, except Boolimba Bluff, but that isn't very difficult either.
Unfortunately, it was very-very hot when I was there, but I started my walks before 6am in the morning and this helped a lot. :)
The fauna is awesome. I've seen lots of animals. They were not afraid of me, I just passed by kangaroos closer than a meter sometimes.
If I can, I will come back with my kids, they will also enjoy it very much.
