My family loved this place. Highly recommend renting the golf cart as it is an uphill walk to kangaroos. We stopped there on way to Florida and so worth the stop. If we are ever in the area again we will go again. We have teenage son and 20 year old daughter, hard to find stuff we all like and we all loved it.

It was great. The only bad thing is how many patrons were smoking around the animals and in turn we had to walk through smoke to see some of the attractions.

It is a wonderful family fun day. The employees are so great!! The cave tour is a little boring for the younger ones but really interesting.

I took 5 kids with me, ages 3,5,10,12, & 14 years old. We all had a great day! I loved the relaxed atmosphere. The kids were able to explore the kangaroo area and interact with the animals without someone micro-managing them, I could tell they really enjoyed that. The Lories cage was fun, scary, and exciting all in one. When we got hot, we cooled off with the cave tour. The Peacock loves guests!

About Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo

Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo offers two unique attractions—the Kentucky Down Under animal park and the Mammoth Onyx Cave—in one spot. Original owners Bill and Judy Austin are to thank for this union, joining forces to celebrate both of their hometowns (Bill from Kentucky and Judy from Australia) in the name of their business.

At the animal park, guests not only learn about animals and their habitats, but they also have the opportunity to interact with some of the critters. Expert guides teach groups how to approach Red and Eastern Gray kangaroos before letting visitors pet the furry marsupials. Visitors can also spy other outback-dwelling animals such as emus, sculcata tortoises, and a Patagonian cavy, or turn their eyes skyward in the aviary to experience the songs and colors of rainbow lorikeets as they sip from cups of nectar. The friendly birds are prone to landing on guests' heads, shoulders, and arms, making for fun photo opportunities.

The other prime attraction is Mammoth Onyx Cave, which was discovered in 1799 by a young girl named Martha Woodson. Since 1921, the cave tours have been a popular tourist destination. Filled with spectacular formations, the cave runs an eighth of a mile. On cave tours designed for kids and families, tour guides use rustic lanterns to paint a picture of what life was like in the cave in the 18th century.
