The Adventure Park hosts a variety of plants and animal breeds, as well as exciting playing facilities for children and visitors such as the adventure wheel and water slide.
The wildlife journey at the Park houses tree kangaroos, wallabies, salt water crocodiles, Papuan harpy eagles and many more.
The Adventure Park is one of the core attractions in Papua New Guinea.
With the commencement of the Pacific Games just a few months away, the Park’s management is ready to provide the best leisure centre for the Games’ participants.
Mr Mon further added that more animals will be imported from the different parts of the world to the Park.

The Park’s manager said the donation is part of its ongoing commitment to the the Park’s landlord.
He said the Adventure Park was built on a piece of land belonging to the PAU, and as such, the park is committed to donating income as assistance.
