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.

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.
