Kentucky Down Under provides a taste of the land of Oz 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 a walk-in 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 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 caves are open year-round, but animal areas are closed at certain times of year.

Customer Reviews

Not a lot of animals for the price but my kids enjoyed it. Definitely suggest renting a golf cart to ride around in because the place is pretty spread out and kids enjoy that as well! Cave tour was fun! Overall nice place. Wish the cafe would have been open at the time we visited though.

Our children ages 10 and 8 loved this place. All the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. We went during the off season and felt like we had the place to ourself. Being able to interact, pet and feed the Kangaroos was so amazing, the animals are super sweet. We also loved feeding the Rainbow Lorikeets and having them land on our shoulders and head. The cave tour is good for children because it's not to long but is very interesting - we even saw a bat, blind crawfish and frog in the cave.

The cave tour and the outback walk about were very interesting and neat, but the rest of the park is fairly rinkydink, so I felt admission was pretty overpriced. It's not s very big park, so would be a good choice for people who have small children or aren't particularly mobile. The cafe is closed in the winter, so don't expect to eat there.
