I took my 3 kids ages 20-24 and we had a fantastic time. It was worth the 3 1/2hour Drive from Knoxville. We called the night before and reserved a golf cart-it was about $40 but well worth it on a hot day. The kids enjoyed taking turns driving. They got to Milk the cow and feed the goats, horses, kangaroos, loorkeets, and the emus. We took a cave tour with Amanda as our guide who was very knowled

Great place. Reason for 3 stars, the line to get in was terribly long and honestly the zoo is meant for 7 years and younger. But on the bright side...the kangaroos are extremely soft and fluffy to per.

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.
