"Symbio has allocated disabled parking at the closest available spots near park entry. This is to make entry and exit more accessible.
Accessibility is improved by:
– Wide entry gates
– layout of our property being on a very gentle slope
– majority of the pathways being paved
– brand new all-accessible amenities block
– all new enclosures being designed with accessibility in mind
Please Note – due to some pathways around our park being gravel, we do suggest having an able-bodied adult accompany visitors who need a wheelchair to ensure these pathways or the grassed lawns of the Kangaroo Walk-Through area does not inhibit their experience."Mobility accessibility features:

The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"Walking into Symbio we were immediately impressed by the animal enclosures which were fitted with glass panels which allow easy viewing for children in prams, young children and BJ in his wheelchair.
The top area of the park is paved and the rest of the park is a combination of grass and compacted gravel (we didn’t find it difficult with BJ’s wheelchair but if you are self propelling in a manual chair I think you may need a bit of a push up some of the inclines).
Symbio Wildlife Park accepts the Australian Companion Card."Other accessibility information:
