Maru Koala and Animal Park
An Animal Park with all the Aussie icons
Maru’s Animal Park
At Maru we aim to give visitors the opportunity to really interact with the animals, including koalas, kangaroos and wallabies, dingoes, emus, parrots, wombats, crocodile, stock animals and more. Join the park keepers at regular talks and presentations, including our feature Wildlife Show on weekends and holidays. View the koalas from the raised boardwalk or go inside their enclosure with the keepers and after see the Sheep Shearing Show.

Pirate Pete’s Mini-Golf
There’s so much more to Maru than just animals. Set sail for 18 holes of adventure as your putt your way around the Princess Caribbean Pirate Ship. Encounter life-size pirate figures, a great white shark and brave the gold-mine under the five meter thunderous waterfall.
This pirate wonderland is right next to the animal park and it provides for such a fun day out. For the family, the traveller, the Melbourne man searching for a day trip or maybe what could be the coolest first date ever.
