Blackbutt Reserve, Newcastle Reviews
A lovely green space right in town, with covered picnic tables and barbecues ready for you to cook your lunch. As a Canadian visitor, it was lovely to see the native flora and fauna up close. Although I'm not a fan of zoos, all the animals looked well fed and healthy. A nice place for an afternoon.
Modern barbecue areas and clean toilets mean that you don’t mind all the mozzies. The wildlife area is pretty fantastic and worth going to see the Koalas any day at 2pm during feeding time while they’re awake! There are so many birds of amazing colours you’d almost think half of them were fake! There is a large grassed area which is great for picnics or friendly game of cricket and the children’s playground is always quite popular. Watch out for the peacocks as they are pretty familiar with food theft
Fantastic facilities and playground (bit hot in summer as no shade). Great animal enclosures - all free. Pay for parking but well worth it to help upkeep of animals and facilities.
We love Blackbutt Reserve, there is an awesome playground, lots of picnic spots and the wildlife enclosures are pretty good considering it is free! Be aware you do pay for parking and it can get very crowded during peak hours and can be tough to find a parking spot on the weekend, but it's on our list of regular places to go! Highly recommended if you have kids!
Lots for the kids to do: a decent playground and lots of animal exhibits, and all it costs is the parking ticket, which, though perhaps annoying, is reasonable and hopefully helps fund the facilities. Ultimately it's a good, cheap family excursion and a chance to get the kids outside.
