  • This place is magical as it is so relaxed - you can get close encounters with different animals and see an amazing diversity including some endemic species that only exist in the Cape Tribulation area...  read more »
  • The animals seemed well cared for but the grounds were very run down. I fell over when my foot slipped down a hole in the grassed area, no warning signs! luckily for me the torn skin off my heel seems...  read more »
  • A jump in the wild and easy-going Australia with this stay: the zoo is just under your room ! Still, very familiar to have breakfast or dinner with the other guests and the nice owners. Lovely, nice c...  read more »
  • The zoo could be charming if the animals were treated with love and respectful owners, but unfortunately they don't. I worked as a volunteer and unfortunately I have pay the price. The owners take volunteers like their slaves (40H per week for free) and treat them as such. We are treated "lazy", they dare to claim that animals die because of us (when we love animals like me it's just unacceptable level to tell me that!), we stayed in a very dirty house and we are suposed make it clean with very few resources, we are nourished with food for the trash mostly obsolete. Not to mention that the owner touches the buttocks of its girls worker without embarrassment. In short, a true social mess!
  • lovely place surrounded by nature and kangaroos
  • Notice HEPLX! TO AVOID AT ALL COSTS! We have volunteering for three weeks in this zoo with a friend. 7: 30 a.m. - 9.30 the coolest part of the work we feed the animals! It sorts the arrivals of the super market and washed the garbage. 30 min break for Tea-Time 10 h - 13 h start of maintenance of the zoo! That is to be gardening, cleaning the car's owner, the rooms of the hotel or the kitchen, pick up droppings kangaroos and many other painful things. And in recognition of the work done, you don't have a thank you but the "bullshit" "lazy" and many other insults coming from the owner of the ZOO! Also if you are a girl he will not interfere to put you a little spanking to share when his wife is there of course! 16 h 30 - 17 h are given food to the animals that eat the night. You don't have a day of rest. At the level of the housing, it is old-fashioned and somewhat dirty upon arrival, but it is acceptable. For food you retrieve the remains of fruits, vegetables and expired meat donated by stores with which the zoo is partnered. You have to "fight" to have cheese! We will keep fond memories of time spent with the animals! But not at all with patrons of the zoo which we have operated and insulted. They did not understand the principle of Helpx and think only about free labor because they pay only water and electricity! The mistake we made was read the review after our departure, but we noticed that it was the same for everyone!

  • Very friendly staff. Saw Crocs, Cassowary, endangered parrots and finches up close and much more. Well worth the trip. Loved it.
