Oakvale Wildlife Park is located 2.5 hours north of Sydney in beautiful Port Stephens.

Set on 25 acres Oakvale is 100% Australian owned and operated. At the farm you will find an endless menagerie of Australian native and domestic farm animals such as ducklings, rabbits, goats, sheep, cattle and horses, koalas, kangaroos, wombats, emus, dingos and a myriad of birds as small as a quarrion and as large as an ostrich. Plus many, many more.

Oakvale opened its doors to the public in November of 1979 under the ownership of Jeffrey and Elaine Sansom. Their son Kent later took over the running of the farm in 1995. His wife Leanne later joined him in 2003 and as a family business endeavour to operate a fun, friendly, family orientated place for the whole family to enjoy.

Since 1979 the farm has undergone countless changes including our major facelift with the construction of our kiosk and eating area facilities with a seating capacity of up to 180 people. The one thing that remains the same is our commitment to providing an environment for our children to learn about our native wildlife and how to protect it.

We hope to ensure a fun, safe, educational and value for money experience for the whole family whilst keeping things as hands-on as possible.
