It is very important that you and all of your friends follow your ranger's instructions closely, and that everyone is gentle and quiet around the animals.


Yes, you can take photos to keep as personal memories and to show to your friends.

If you wish to use images for commercial benefit, you must first obtain permission from Walkabout Park as we reserve all rights to use images of our animals, park and team members.


Depending on what is going on at Walkabout Park on the day (we are a working wildlife sanctuary so our days can be a little unpredictable), we may need to change your tour start time. This is unlikely to happen but, if it does, we will contact you to advise the revised start time.


Our animals' well-being is our number one priority. Very occasionally, there may be an animal welfare reason why you can't meet a particular animal.
