Not wanting to rent overnight? You’re also able to make a reservation to visit the animals, including an option called the “ Kangaroo Experience.” This includes an hour-long meet-and-greet with red kangaroos during which you’ll have a chance to bottle-feed kangaroos and take pictures. You’ll also be taught a lot from the knowledgable on-site staff. It’s listed as $45 per person on their website, with openings listed each day at 12PM. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED.
