  • Absolutely loved my visit. It's rare to see these beautiful animals up close and the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
  • Great informative tour, clean & welcoming
  • Overall good tour. But we didn't learn much from the tour guide, instead a DVD and more about aimed at the echidnas. But it was a good tour and the family really enjoyed it.
  • The echidna room was great, they walk around with you, really cool.
  • Over priced..spent more time watching a boring video from the 80s..seen 2 platapus and 3 echinda..never again
