  • Went to the zoo with expectations of staying for an hour or so and stayed for most of the day. Entrance for adults was $29 a head under 2 is free. Shows with animals seem to start at 10am which i reco...  more »
  • The owners have clearly spent time and money on this zoo, which has an amazing variety of animals and birds. Just the right size for Nana and Grandpa.  more »
  • Awesome little zoo that was very interactive. Staff were excellent and knowledgeable. Stars of the show were the snuggly emu, Bruiser the Lion and the baby goats (all kept separately don't worry).  more »

  • Friendliest animals I have ever met at a zoo - inquisitive and happy interacting w humans. Large diversity of animals and bird species. Hairy-nosed wombats came to the fence and let me pat them (also tried to play bite my knee - teeth like a hare!) Exceeded all expectations. Only warning might be to keep little kids from feeding the camels and herd animals (goats/deer/sheep) in the feeding enclosure which were surprisingly aggressive in seeking out food.
  • Great family fun. Heaps of different animals to keep the kids entertained. Pretty cheap entry fee. I absolutely loved it and will definitely take my children back for many more visits
  • Got a very good variety of animals. It is small but cosy. Good for young kids. All day pass so can spend all your time there. Hourly talk to intro on different animal by interactive and friendly zookeeper. My favourite is definitely the Monkey and Lion talk. They are amazing animals.
  • A wonderful inexpensive Zoo where family and friends can enjoy a few hours walking around looking at all the native and exotic animals. The albino wallabies and white lions are amazing but the meercats win your hearts! Warning watch out for the greedy goats they will grab your food bag right out of your hands. The Ostrich and Camels are hilarious nerve racking to feed. Best of all you can take all your own food and drink (no alcohol) and they have free barbecues and plenty of tables and chairs!! Great day out bring your camera!
  • Awesome little zoo. Perfect day to see the animals being so active. Informative talks and really well set out. Great for younger kids.
