Live your Lion King dreams at Symbio Wildlife Park. While the park's 16 acres of manicured gardens on the Illawarra escarpment are home to fearsome species like cheetahs, alligators and snakes, you'll usually be set up with a fluffier (and friendlier) playdate on a behind-the-scenes experience (starting from $125 per person).

Meet rare and secretive Nepalese red pandas as they descend from the trees to pluck snacks from your hands and enjoy a belly rub. Or, learn about the complicated social lives of meerkats as the inquisitive mob scurries around your feet, ready for a feed.

Fulfil a childhood dream by dedicating a full day to the animal kingdom and interacting with numerous zoo inhabitants while shadowing a zookeeper. You'll get to prepare food, clean habitats, provide animal enrichment toys and learn about each unique species as you explore the park.
