  • A great hands on experience. A small zoo made it great for our toddler. She didn’t get tiered walking around unlike some of the larger city zoos. A good variety of animals. The staff are very friendly...  more »
  • Had such a great time with the kids. Kids enjoyed the activity to find all the statues and then go rewarded with an ice block by the lovely and friendly staff. Feeding the camels was the highlight! Ha...  more »

  • Being a small zoo did not know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. My grandsons ran from one enclosure to the next then we did them all again at a more leisurely pace. A very clean, well laid out zoo. A surprising selection with friendly staff and hourly lectures on the different species throughout the day. The number of animals the kids had access,to feed and pat, was much appreciated by the grand kids. Good amenities and picnic tables for picnics and/or birthday parties. Definitely worth a visit if passing through this area.
  • Great little zoo to visit with a young family. Everything is in close proximity and it's an easy walk around to see all the animals. There are feeding displays every half hour so the little ones don't get bored. You can feed the goats, sheep, kangaroos and some of the birds. There are also free bbq's and lots (and I mean lots) of shelters to sit under and have a packed picnic. You can also book a shelter if you have a group or having a gathering. Staff are absolutely lovely, friendly and very knowledgeable. We would love to visit again.
  • For a small zoo has some amazing animals. The best interactive zoo I've ever been to. Staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The meercat experience is a must
  • Small and intimate zoo. Can get up close and personal with a lot of the animals. Some enclosures are hard for tiny people to see in, but this is only a few of them. The tame birds are a highlight. And the petting area is great for medium sized humans.
  • Beautiful zoo. Staff really love their jobs and most importantly their animals. Well done Hunter Valley Zoo so glad we chose to visit. 😀
