Blackbutt Reserve, Newcastle Reviews - Write a Review

  • Long time favorite with upgraded facilities. Bbq area with covered tables or grassy area to picnic, great playground and native animal enclosures and pond with ducks and turtles. Parking cost a bit steep

  • This is a great place to bring family and friends. You can picnic or use one of the many barbeque stations provided. The best bit is it is free to use. The only negative is that parking can be pricey if you just staying for an hour, rather use the ticket and stay as long as you can. They will allow for kids parties but you must pay for that. They have self guided tours of the wombats, Koala bears and other birds etc as well as some Kangaroos. Public rest rooms are available. Over all a nice place to visit on the weekend or school holiday. There is also a nice kids play area which will keep the little ones busy for ages.

  • Pretty much a free zoo (parking 12 bucks a day). Kids playground. Heaps of space for gatherings. Peacocks! Native animals too of course.

  • I went to Blackbutt Reserve with my friends and family and it was amazing! Today, I went for a trek to see animals and catch a show about Reptiles. (lizards, snakes etc.) It was very informative and we even petted it on the back. It was amazing how some interesting can come together as on to keep us interested about animals, spending time with them and feeding at one point. The animals appreciated the service of us and I'm appreciated that the animals are happy and I enjoyed it. It was the best!
