  • We visited the zoo for our granddaughter’s birthday. It was a nice morning but I felt it was very over priced for what you got. It didn’t take us long to walk around the park and see the animals: bird...  more »
  • Visited here many years ago with the family and noticed it appeared to be just a bit rundown but nevertheless contained a broad range of animals. Decided to revisit to see what it was like now and WOW...  more »
  • We went there as my 4 year old granddaughter chose to go there for her birthday. I didn’t have high expectations but I was pleasantly surprised. We loved it, although it’s smallish there is a great va...  more »

  • πŸ’—πŸ˜€ loved the whole day here! πŸ¦‰The program of animal talks really made the visit valuable πŸ¨πŸ¦πŸ† We had a group of teens with us and they didn't want to leave!πŸ¦‡ Being able to feed the kangaroos, goats🐐, sheepπŸ‘ & deer were a highlight but my favourite was feeding theπŸͺ camel! πŸ˜† It was the most amazing feeling! Dancing with the Cockatoo, cuddling the wombat & tentatively touching the python🐍 were also amazing! I'm ashamed to say that it has been 8 years since our last visit, but this zoo has grown and become something wonderful πŸŒΏπŸŠπŸ’πŸ‚ You can purchase drinks and sandwichesπŸ₯ͺπŸ₯€ at the zoo but I recommend packing a picnic. There's plenty of seating or grasses spots to enjoy lunch. Don't forget the sunscreen & drinking water.
  • Wonderful Zoo! Well kept & tidy. All the staff were so welcoming & friendly!πŸ˜ƒ And really good variation of animals πŸ¦πŸ†πŸπŸ¦ŒπŸ¦πŸ”πŸ€πŸ₯πŸπŸ¦ƒπŸΎπŸ¦ŽπŸ¦†πŸŠπŸ’πŸ¦… BBQ available, however there are no cafeterias, food outlets or vending machines so you will need to bring food should you wish. I had a really lovely time here πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜„πŸ€— Thank you Hunter Zoo 😘
  • GO CHECK OUT HUNTER VALLEY ZOO ASAP!! πŸ¦πŸ―πŸ¦‡πŸ¦πŸΎπŸŠπŸ¦‰πŸŒΏπŸ¦†πŸπŸ΅πŸΊ Loved the staff interaction you get at this zoo, very unique and diverse. Would highly recommend to everyone. Animal talks offered at different times of the day and you can pat select few animals, very friendly, also feeding is available along with a vast range of animals.
  • Really good place to visit. A real credit to the owners and people that work there. Really clean with healthy birds and animals. Well worth the trip for an easy afternoon walking around or spending some time in a pre-booked BBQ area. Great for all ages and group sizes.
  • A surprisingly great experience. I was a bit skeptical on what this zoo would be like. When we pulled up it appeared as it was going to be more like a farm more than a zoo. There was minimal designated parking. When we got inside myself and the family were blown away by the range of animals and quality of displays along with how close you could get to most of the animals. There was plenty of room with other family's having BBQs and party's there also. The petting areas with wallaby, deer and many many more animals was a hit with my kids. We found it easy to fill half of the day and had a great time.
