  • 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.
  • A wonderful family day out. The little gift shop is lovely and sells some basic food (sausage sizzle, pies, cold drinks and ice cream). Hugely impressed that they had gluten free pies!
  • Loved it! Animals are awesome, talks are great! Animals easy to see! Great sausage sizzle! Nice to be able to visit a zoo and not pay a fortune for food! Easy to find and easy parking! Staff were so helpful! Fly spray and sun screen to use for free was a lovely little touch!
  • Zoo in Country, just perfect. Very calm and relaxing animal. Staff is lovely, knowledgeable very helpful and really happy to share all stories about each animal. Very happy to come back another time. Congrats on the good job
  • I love that they're not pretensious. They know that they're not Taronga, but they do a great job of being who they are. Excellent talks by people who know their stuff. Healthy animals. Good level of interactive opportunities.
