  • We spent quite a bit longer at the zoo than we thought it would originally take. It was great to be there at the time of the arrival of the two baby zebras and the kids loved the variety of animals th...  more »
  • We decided to venture to the zoo for the 4yr olds birthday. All the paths are dirt, so keep footwear in mind. We have a big heavy pram which handled the walkways well but a small pram might struggle. ...  more »

  • What an awesome zoo! We were lucky as we went midweek so it was very quiet and we felt like we had the whole zoo to ourselves! The staff are so friendly and more than happy to have a chat about the animals. They have hourly activities/talks which we loved and the keepers are just great. An awesome experience and we will definitely be back! Lovely to support a family owned zoo.
  • What a fantastic enjoyable day. Have not been there for a couple of years cudo to them heaps of new exhibits and lots of hard work upgrading. Staff very friendly really worth a visit.
  • This is a privately owned Zoo, so it can't be compared to Australia Zoo or Taronga but it has just as good a variety of local and exotic animals! The owners and staff are doing an amazing job with this Zoo and i would definitely recommend the drive to visit!
  • Great little zoo for the family to visit. Free parking and a nice little gift/food shop as you enter. Nice area for picnic lunches just inside the main entrance under shady trees. The animals look healthy and the guided tour is free, call ahead to get the start times
  • Great for young kids rhey can walj around and get close enough to be entertained . Staff are good as gold. Well worth it take water and hats 😎
