Visitor Guides & Maps

You can download your "Visitor Information" guides and maps here

Before you visit Walkabout Park, it is a good idea to download your visitor information guides and maps and bring them with you. The information they contain is really useful and, reading it before your arrive, you can plan how to get the most out of your visit.

 Park Maps

full pageAboriginal Sites Walk and Mt White Lookout Walk

This map shows you all the tracks of the park and gives you an idea of what you will see along the route, how long it will take to walk each of the tracks, the conditions of the tracks and the level of fitness required. If you download "A brief guide to the Aboriginal sites at Walkabout Park" you can learn a little bit about each of the sites before you visit them.

full pageAnimal Loop Walk

This map shows you the section of the park close to the Visitor Centre where the animal camps are situated, and where most of the free-ranging animals are likely to be found. It names the different species that you are likely to see. Remember that many Australian animals do sleep for much of the day. The nocturnal animals, like the Tasmanian devils, wombats and bilbies, do wake up during the afternoon at their feeding times so do remember to also download the "Schedule of daily ranger-led talks and tours" to see when their feeding times are.

 Visitor Guides

The rangers lead interactive, hands-on animal encounters and bush skills walkabout workshops every half hour (and sometimes even more frequently) every day. This schedule will help you to plan your day. Many of our regular visitors prefer to visit in the afternoon when the nocturnal animals awake at their regular feeding times. Others prefer the mornings with the 11am boomerang throwing being extremely popular. Most visitors stay for between 1½ and 3 hours, although some do pop in for a quick 40 minute "meet the animals" on their way to the Hunter Valley, while others literally stay all day. Scroll down to the bottom of any page on our website to see the schedule of Talks, Tours and Encounters.

full pageImportant safety information, how to interact safely with the animals in their world

This is ESSENTIAL reading for anyone visiting Walkabout Park!

Please follow these easy rules like "don't touch a kangaroo on the head or neck, but they do love a back massage". The information in this guide is very important for all visitors, both adults and children. Although we have tried to write it in a way that is easy to read and easy to follow, if you do need more guidance, please ask one of the Walkabout Park team. You can anticipate the truely wonderful experience of going into the animals' world to meet the friendliest wild animals in Australia. But do remember, any animal that is frightened might bite or scratch. We do not have incidents at Walkabout Park, but this is probably because we give every visitor this important information on how to not scare the animals.

full pageWhy we never hand feed our animals

We know that many zoos do let you hand feed their animals, but Walkabout Park is not a zoo. This easy to follow guide answers your questions about why it is very important that you never feed the wildlife at Walkabout Park.

full pageA brief guide to the Aboriginal sites at Walkabout Park

This guide contains just a little bit of information about each of the Aboriginal sites that you can visit at Walkabout Park. If you would like a deeper insite into the meaning and significance of the heritage sites at Walkabout Park, you may want to engage a Personal Ranger for a couple of hours (or longer) to take you up to the sites and explain their relationships with each other and the greater Cultural Landscape across Calga.
