  • Have visited the zoo a few times now, but our last visit was the best, we arrive at 10:30, half hour after opening, it was the best time, more interaction because the animals were being fed, so they were vocal more responsive. Being able to feed the kangaroos is always a highlight (buy the bags of pallets) bring lunch with you cause there's several places to eat, we have taken international students with us and it's been a highlight for them to pat a kangaroo and take lots of selfies. A fantastic day 😊
  • Largest regional zoo in victoria. A humble zoo where the animals are well loved and looked after. Reasonably priced, the zoo has a layout in a circuit with no back tracking, you can see every exhibit. The staff are helpful and enthusiastic. Great for kids! There are deer and peacocks that roam freely and you may feed the deer! Worth a visit to break up your holiday!
  • I think zoo and it’s owners are amazing. The animals were obviously well cared for and there was an awesome variety. It is a bit more expensive than mainstream zoos and it could use a lot more shade around the zoo for hot days but the playground, frequent tables and being able to pat and feed a number of animals around the zoo was great and we really enjoyed our day here even though it was way too hot.
  • Didn't know this zoo existed until about 2 weeks ago. Had a blast here with my family. Highlight was feeding the animals, we bought 12 bags between 3 of us and would probably have bought more just to feed more of the animals. Absolutely coming back.
  • We were in the area and took our nephew for his 3rd birthday, they gave us some free food to feed certain animals, which the kids loved. We also got to see the cheetahs being feed again a huge hit. There was a lot of enclosures closed which made some stretches quite a walk in between seeing things, but still had an enjoyable experience.
