The zoo is pretty small. The highlight is the freindly kangaroos to feed , some even with joeys. The cavern is small but beautifull, takes about 20 minutes to see and is a nice addittion to make it all worth the ticket price.

We had a wonderful time at the zoo. Our guide Brennan through the cave was the best. I think our golf cart was on its last leg though. It was really noisy. It probably could use some maintenance

Had a great time here! Went with my mother and two 10 year olds. All enjoyed the day. I do recommend renting a golf cart if you have older family members or younger children because there are some hills that could be difficult for them. Plus you can keep snacks, hand sanitizer, souvenirs, coats, sunscreen, etc. in the cart. All staff very friendly.

Loved feeding and petting the kangaroos, donkey, goats, and horse! I was happy to go through their short cave tour after not being able to see one at Mammoth Cave because they were booked up. Also loved seeing the foxes, wolves, birds, and lemurs. Would definitely recommend.

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.
