  • A zoo is meant to be a happy place, but this was not a happy place for animals, visitors or even staff working. It was extremely hot and miserable. Although the campus is large, animals are confined w...  more »

  • Great family day out. Don't have big expectations of a large zoo and you'll love what you see for the lower price than at a larger zoo. Mostly animals that can handle our climate. Lions get fed on Saturday night so they don't tend to want to participate with talks. However, the closer encounters with the animals and the great staff make this zoo so worthwhile, especially being in our backward.... how lucky we are. Expansions on going. Keen to go back and see what will be added.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed it. Happy animals happy staff happy visitor. 😀 Truly recommend a visit if you haven't already.
  • Bit hot dry & Barron. Expensive $95 for 2 adults 2 kids. Informative tour. Needs more trees & maybe a tropical lunch area with a dam or water.
  • A great small zoo, perfect for young children. Plenty of opportunities to feed the animals. This zoo allows you to get much closer to the animals than other larger zoos and the staff are great.
  • SEE WELL KEPT LOOKED AFTER HAPPY WILDLIFE. EASY ACCESS VARIETY IN A SMALL AERA.
