Gan Garoo

Touring the Jezreel Valley

So Gan Garoo is one of my personal favorites places to go when touring the Jezreel Valley. In fact, this especially true when you’re touring with kids and you look for some attractions that aren’t archaeological tells! But what makes the place so different and unique that kids love so much? So Gan Garoo is a unique Australian Park where visitors can see and experience Australian animals and wildlife.



At Gan Garoo there are over 50 free-roaming Kangaroo who visitors can meet up close to touch and feed from the palm of your hand! In the Lorikeet Aviary, you will get the chance to feed our large flock of Lorikeets with fruit and in the Australian Aviary, you will encounter many species of large parrots up close! All this and even more exciting up-close encounters with a variety of interesting animals such as – Kangaroo, Cassowary, Emu, Lorikeets, Flying Fox, many species of reptiles, and rare birds. Don’t forget to enjoy our Dinosaur maze “GanGoo Yura”

An encounter unlike any other, with different species of prehistoric Dinosaurs who move roar, and even tell you about themselves. In addition to the maze; they offer other life-sized mind-bending games to be solved. For more info about their rates, please check out their website.

Lots of parking is available at Gan Garoo!

And there are discounts for tickets online – 49 NIS (instead of 59 NIS)
