Christmas parties, staff get-togethers, award nights….

For something delightfully different this year, why not reward your staff and their families with an exclusive Aussie wildlife experience!

They’ll have an awesome time, getting up close and personal with our friendly koalas, wombats, lizards, and even snakes. The kids love feeding the kangaroos and ducks, and everyone gets a thrill out of watching our mighty crocodiles explode out of the water at feeding time.

Melaleuca Function Centre will be your headquarters for the duration, where you can take a break from the fun and relax at the water’s edge.

Two options available:

  • After-hours exclusive use of the park, or
