For a peaceful walk with some Australian wildlife, head for a walk through the Valley Lake Wildlife Park. You can spy a number of native animals from the path, or do a bit of bird watching. Even without any animal spotting, the Valley lake Wildlife Park has a peaceful walking path, where you can take some time out during your day. It is located just round the corner from barbecues, public toilets, picnic areas, and playgrounds.

Before you enter the wildlife park you'll find tips for making the most of your walk. Find out what animals you might see, and the best ways to spot them. The park is home to these animals, so the key is to be quiet, so that you don't disturb them in their natural habitat. Make sure you look carefully, and you might spy some of the hard to find animals.

The park is home to kangaroos, koalas, emus, wombats, and plenty more, as well as being a great place to see some birdlife. Kangaroos and wallabies are some of the most common animals you'll come across, as they graze around the park. If you keep your eyes on the trees you might be able to see a koala or two.

There are things to watch out for, as the park is replicating a native Australian environment, some of its residents can be dangerous. Some of the snakes can be harmful if they give you a bite, so the best thing to do is stick to the paths, and walk slowly and carefully.

The park provides a peaceful walking spot, and there are plenty of benches throughout the park for when you want to just take some time out and watch your surroundings. Kids especially will love getting the chance to see some of the animals, so it is a good visit for the whole family.

The park is free to visit, and is open between 7:00am and 6:00pm daily.
