Blackbutt Reserve, Newcastle Reviews

  • Free and absolutely fantastic. Almost like a zoo. There are staff there that you can get activity sheets from. There are peacocks everywhere. You can even see ducklings and baby peacocks if you are lucky! Adequate parking on most days. There is a nature trail of you like to walk. Picnic tables available.

  • A real hidden gem. Fantastic place for a family day out. Big picnic area with play ground that all the kids seemed to love.animal walk was great, easy to do with a pram, just a few uphill slopes. Cafe sells drinks and iceblocks at good prices. Parking is paid and remember the mosquito repellent, one area of the car park was thick with them.

  • Its not a big zoo or anything, but think of it more as a park in the bush with duck ponds and some animals. I bring my international friends and they love it. Picnic tables and playground are all excellent

  • See Aussie wildlife up close! The kiosk closes early in the day. The parking is more than you would expect, but remember that this funds FREE wildlife exhibits. Great place for families and tourists

  • Beautiful and free park with lots of animals, picnic spots and more. Very family friendly and highly recommended if you want to get away from Sydney and even look at some native Australian wildlife.
