"The park is set on a very flat 7-acre block with smooth paved pathways and plenty of shady places to rest along the way. Most enclosures have a double-gated entry for easy access, and we have plenty of staff around the park that are happy to offer assistance if required.
There are disabled access bathrooms at the entry of the park and baby change tables in each bathroom located throughout the park.
We also have ONE wheelchair available for guest use – it is subject to availability and requires advanced booking."Mobility accessibility features:

The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"The walk-through koala experience is wheelchair accessible (enter via the exit gate) with a pathway surrounding the eucalypts where the koalas perch.
The park is virtually level so there are no hills to push up making it a dream with wheelchairs and prams. We also appreciate the easy viewing with low fences and glass panels which are great for toddlers and wheelchair users.
Disabled toilet facilities can be found at two locations around the park. At the main entrance there is a large unisex facility. Within the park there are disabled toilet stalls within the womens and mens facilities. There is ramp access to both.
Disabled parking places are near the entrance to the park."Other accessibility information:
