Tamworth’s Marsupial Park is a native animal experience unlike any other in NSW. Children can get close to kangaroos, wallabies, cockatoos and emus, spot the species in the free-flight aviary and hand feed the Indian peacocks.
The 14-hectare park is run by volunteers and entry is by donation. Its new Adventure Playground has two distinct areas: for under-5s and for over-5s. The design encourages children to use their fine and gross motor-skills – and of course, their imagination. There are barbecue facilities and bathrooms. Entry is free.
