  • It's quite a friendly zoo - the fact that they have lions wolves and reptiles ;) It's quite clean and spacious. It's great for family and a group of friends to spend the whole day here with zoo and some tree adventure. They also have small shows every hour like reptile shows - lion shows - crocodile show! They let you have a intimate experience with quite a lot of animals here. You learn a lot through the shows with having a great time! They also serve coffee and quick bites. Though they just have two toilets which are not so clean and the wait is forever ! Overall the place is quite a visit be it with your loved one , group of friends, or the whole family get together!
  • Dropped by as a quick stopover to end our roadtrip. Very awesome zoo! Saw an amazing demonstration with a wombat and her baby in her pouch and got to touch it. A pity we did not have enough time to finish the zoo.
  • Really good, great shows that are mostly interactive (best ones are on the weekend); highly recommend an annual pass - great value
  • A very good place for Picnic for friends and Families. Kids will love the Zoo as they can be very close to all the animals. Also have some good Tree Top adventure stuff in zoo.
  • This is a very small zoo but great for the todolloers. My son loved feeding Kangaroos and sheep.
