Symbio Wildlife Park is a privately owned medium sized zoo located in Helensburgh, New South Wales, south of Sydney and in close proximity to the city of Wollongong.

Beginning in 1975 as a native Australian wildlife park, Symbio later expanded its holdings with a number of different animals from other countries also, and has contributed to conservation work and captive breeding programs for both

Australian and exotic animals. In 2021 the park established specialty built captive-breeding facilities for native vulnerable and endangered Bellinger River snapping turtles, Manning River snapping turtles and Stuttering frogs.

Among Symbio's animal residents is an albino echidna named Leo.

  • Visited today (Saturday) Very humid and sticky! But it was perfect because it didn’t rain on us, thank goodness. The staffs are friendly, the service was quick. They scanned by barcode & provide me with the animal food. I have loads of fun, seeing different animals, especially the Australian native animals. My 2-year-old nephew loved it as well. The water splash park was also fun, it was too hot I went to play with nephew in the water! It was only 30 minutes from the shire.
  • Lovely wildlife park with a great range of Aussie animals! Loads of space and well looked after grounds. It surprisingly never feels overly busy or stressful and it’s easy to get out when you have all had enough - unlike the bigger zoos! Take a packed lunch, the cafe is small and very limited (but they are building a new one which is cool!). Splash park is amazing in the summer! Oh and there is a fabulous kids playground too! Everything you need for a fab family day out!
