Blackbutt Reserve Reviews & Ratings

  • Amazing place for nature lovers and kids. One can experience a variety of animals, birds and reptiles while walking on the boardwalk. The koalas are really close and you can enjoy seeing them. There is a big picnic area and kids play area where the kids can have additional fun. The parking has little steep slopes so not very disabled friendly. Also, in rains be careful on the boardwalk, it can be quite slippery.

  • Great place! Would love to come back and visit the trails. Family friendly, and spacious.

  • Great place for families. Active koalas from a close look. Beautiful shady forest. Playground and picnic areas.

  • It's pretty good for family events and picnics. There is no entry fee to see the animals which is a plus. The small pond has some very interesting fishes and turtles.

  • Nice little reserve. Has a few animals on display mostly birds. I thought the parking fee of $12 a bit high .
