Founded, owned and operated by the Heffer family, at Maru we personally take the time to ensure you enjoy your visit.
Enjoy hand feeding and patting the kangaroos and wallabies, including rare albino animals. Meet the Koalas up close on hourly Koala tours where the Keeper will take you right inside the koala enclosure to personally introduce you to our Koala family. Pay a small additional fee to enjoy a 'Koala Close Encounter' and actually pat a koala yourself. See wombats, Tasmanian Devils, dingoes, a Crocodile, native birds and more in the animal park.
Meet the Keepers and be introduced to a different species animal by name as you learn about their characteristics and natural habitats in the wild at hourly talks on all weekends, school and public holidays.
Bring your camera and take advantage of the ample photo opportunities as you interact with the animals.
Then set sail into Pirate Pete’s Mini-Golf Adventure and enjoy 18 holes of Pirating fun. Putt your way around the thirty meter Pirate Ship and encounter life-size Pirate figurines, including one of Captain Jack Sparrow. Enter the gold mine under the five meter thunderous waterfall and watch out for the grouch in the old outback dunny.
Do either activity or for one low price purchase an ‘All Day Pass’ to give you unlimited access all day long to the Animal Park and Pirate Pete’s Mini-golf. Enjoy a meal or snack in the licensed café area.
We welcome group bookings and also cater for Koala or Pirate themed children’s parties.
