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.

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.

The staff was amazing showing us the animals and educating us about their origins, habitats and behaviors as well as a super fun cave tour. Getting to pet all of the animals including feeing the kangaroos was amazing, we even gotthe kooabura to laugh! We will go back at least once a year for a day of fun for the adults and children!
