Yes we are OPEN again!

Our team - animals and rangers - have missed you. We're so excited that you'll be back soon. We're working flat out to make sure we're ready for you when you get here.
We have made some changes to keep everyone safe. To help us and each other, please...

1: It will be a huge help if you buy your tickets online before you get here to avoid crowding at reception when you arrive.

2: Phone us on (02) 43751100 if you want us to help you with your ticket purchase.

3: Keep MORE THAN 1 emu length apart. We've got 80 acres so there's lots of space for you to spread out.

4: If you have a cold or you're not well, please postpone your visit. We'll change your ticket date to when you are feeling better.

5: We will have roving rangers around the "animal loop" to answer your questions and keep things clean and sanitised.

6: If you're concerned about anything when you are here, please tell us so that we can deal with it.

red crowned toadlet

Red-Crowned Toadlet ~ Pseudophryne australis

Although this frog is called a toadlet, it is in fact a frog. There are no native toads in Australia. This frog is only found within the Sydney sandstone region to a radius of approx. 150km.

These frogs are hard to see due to their secretive nature and limited habitat. Their breeding sites, during warm months, are dry creek beds with little or no vegetation. When autumn arrives, the frogs return with the rain and lay their eggs under logs and rocks near the edge of the water. The eggs develop in these damp conditions and when rain comes it washes them into the water where the tadpoles, at less than 10mm in length, swim free.

With suitable environmental conditions metamorphosis can occur within a couple of weeks.

The Red-Crowned Toadlet’s call, ‘eeeek eek,’ is repeated at infrequent intervals.
