  • Absolutely brilliant! The tour was full of information and the guide was extremely lovely. Travelled with a special needs client and all the ladies made her feel so welcome! I will be recommending this place for a long long time
  • Great place to learn about monotremes. Very basic and nothing flashy. The video room needs upgrading. Seeing platypuses up close was great.
  • Fantastic. They also had a walk through area of Echidnas. Kids loved it.
  • Echidna room is fantastic! Platypus room is small but you get really good views of them. Would recommend for any animal lovers
  • Great place, very interesting and informative. Kids loved the echidna area.
