Blackbutt Reserve, Newcastle Reviews

  • Amazing, great kids park, lots of beautiful walks. Lovely birds and animals as well as duck ponds. All for a few dollars parking. Great for the kids Little cafe as well with pod coffee and plenty of snacks and a few toys for the little ones.

  • Had a great time at Blackbutt. Lots of beautiful birds to see and animals too. Great for kids. First time in Australia for me so it was a good introduction into the wildlife that Australia has to offer.

  • Had a awesome party there for my Granddaughter. No need to book shelter got there early and secured the best one and had a amazing day weather was great although a little cold and windy when I arrived at 8am to start setting up and securing the shelter. GROUNDS- very clean and tidy staff were amazing as always

  • This place is seriously incredible. Parking cost is a little high, but well worth it for the free park with amazing animal displays, brilliant playground and fantastic park area. Great for a family or a wildlife date

  • Great place for a family day out. Lots of area for the kids to run around. Electric BBQs, but in high demand! The animal and bird walks are great! Now $12 to park! But its goes into upkeep of the park.
