I think the animals are geared towards younger kids. The cave is really nice. If you have any kind of knee issues or breathing problems, I strongly recommend renting a golf cart.

Great place to take the kids to have a great interaction with the animals. There is a lot of walking so I suggest renting a golf cart(a day in advance) if you have any issues walking. The cave tour is a must. The guide is very knowledgeable!!

It’s not that big of a place but it’s kind of hilly. They do rent golf carts but you should call ahead and check on the details and availability. We didn’t use one, but depending on your health and abilities you might be interested. Not “overly” exciting, but we are animal lovers and could have pet the Kangaroos all day ! Small “cash only” fee to feed animals.

Would not have been happy if I had paid full price. The golf carts are expensive and ours didn't work. I think the animals are taken care of but some enclosures were very smal.

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.
