Symbio started in 1975 as a small wildlife park and has now grown to become a multi-award winning and internationally publicised zoo, famous for getting our visitors closer than ever before to amazing animals.

Visitors to Symbio can get up close and personal to all the Australian animal favourites, such as cuddle up to koala for that once in a lifetime iconic Aussie selfie, roll around on the grass as you feed, pat and interact with our large mob of kangaroos and if that is still not enough and you want to get even closer, you can choose to go one step further and have one of our exclusive behind the scenes experiences with either the Australian or exotic animals.
