This zoo is very child friendly with hands on experiences. It was enjoyable for us grandparents, too.

It’s fun for the kids, the golf carts are expensive ($50) and not worth the money unless you are physically unable. The kangaroos are fun to pet but the food is expensive and once we tried feeding them we noticed they have no interest and had piles of food from previous visitors sitting next to them. We bought Groupons and when we “paid” we’re told that we had to pay another $5 approx in taxes.

My family and I had a wonderful time. My 7 yr old had a blast feeding the Lories and the animals in the outback. Our cave guide, Aiden was awesome. Love the cave tour. Glad I read the review's, the golf cart was worth it. I would highly recommend visiting this Kentucky gem.

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.
