Urimbirra is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘to preserve’ or ‘to take care of’. The site has evidence of canoe and shield trees of Aboriginal tribal activity many hundreds of years ago. Urimbirra gives you the chance to see more than 70 species of Australian fauna in their natural surroundings. Amidst giant old gum trees, kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, emus, dingos and wombats may be viewed. Whilst on the lake, pelicans, spoonbills, black swans, egrets and Cape Barren geese may be readily seen. The paths through the park allow you to see the animals at close range and a leisurely walk through the 16-hectare site is a photographers delight.

Both Freshwater and Saltwater crocodiles are displayed.
