– Private Group Experience

Meet Mary, an uncommonly friendly common wombat.

In this ten-minute close-up encounter, you can enter her enclosure while she is enjoying her food, bob down behind her, and give her lots of pats down the back while her Keeper chats about her and her species.

Don’t forget to take some selfies, as our gorgeous Mary is a proven Instagram queen.

Online booking is essential.

As wombats enjoy time in their burrows, there is a possibility that Mary may decide to remain underground. If this is the case on the day of your visit, you will receive a full refund.


Time: Wombat encounters are at 1:30pm daily, with a second encounter running on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 1:45pm.

Group size: A private group of up to 5 people.

Price: $120 for 1-2 people. Additional people can be added at $30 per person up to a maximum of 5 people in the group.

Age: Minimum age 4 years. Children aged 4-11 must be accompanied by an adult inside the enclosure. Children aged 12- 17 must be accompanied by an adult who can remain outside the enclosure.

Visitors must be able to understand and follow Keeper safety instructions (for guest and animal welfare).

Unfortunately, this encounter cannot accommodate wheelchairs and walkers at the moment. Participants must be physically able to crouch to the wombat’s level and stand up easily.
