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.

Great family outing. All ages can get some exercise and meet some kangaroos up close! Enjoyed the cave tour as well! If you are taking small children or grandma, please consider renting a golf cart.

Great value for a fun interactive experience with the animals and staff. Cave tour was an awesome added bonus! One of the best zoo experience we have ever had.

We had a great adventure at the zoo. It's not a very big zoo but the park personnel were great especially Billy with the Kangaroo's and Joyce with the Birds. Our visit was a great time, the park was not crowded and the animals were friendly. If you want to see Kangaroos, this is the park to visit! This is the first park where we actually got to pet the 'roos. If you are traveling I-65 thru Kentucky and have time for a distraction, it is worth a stop. There is a truck stop across the street, but there are also ample fast food options the next exit south (at exit 53), the zoo is worth the stop.
