Kentucky Down Under provides a taste of the land of Aus with a platter of authentic Australian animals, culture, and a gift shop, plus a Kentucky cave. Upon arrival, a staff member can help you plan your adventure with stops at an aviary to gawk at Australian finches; Camp Corroboree for a 45-minute presentation on Aboriginal culture, including the soothing hum of the didgeridoo; a guided tour through the kangaroo-, wallaby-, and emu-infested Outback; and more. In addition to the Aussieness, Kentucky Down Under shows off a local treasure with the Kentucky Caverns. During the 45-minute tour of the earth-hole, explorers can witness the ever-changing formations of stalactites, stalagmites, and life-size Dennis Franz rock statues. Between animal petting and stalactite hugging, KDU-goers can grab a salad, sandwich, or bison burger at the Outback Café. The park is open year-round.

Fun place with a lot of animal experiences and a great staff. The cave is a unique experience as well with all the makings of a fun filled family day and at least when we were there no crowds or feeling rushed.

Love the up-close, hands-on experience this zoo provides. The staff was friendly, the shows were entertaining and informative, and we had a blast. I'd love to go back on a less busy day and spend more time there. Not a lot to do in the nearby area if you aren't into caves and hiking, but this is very much worth it!!!

KDU is a terrific place for kids. I have made 3 trips this summer because the children love it. The animals are well cared for and friendly. The staff is amazing. The cave is an active cave and very cool. Please take your children or grandkids; I promise you won't regret it.
