  • So amazing my son had a ball. He was so fascinated by the crocodiles and the staff were so wonderful with him and his endless questions. Would recommend to anyone. Was even tempted to tell our friends to have the wedding here instead of were they are going to have it. Really well put together zoo with shows and attractions. Thank you to Matt, Billy, Sarah and Niki G.
  • What a fantastic experience. Well worth the trip. Would be a full day trip with kids and when busy. We went off peak as 2 adults. Did it in just over half a day and felt it was worth every cent. Lagoon boat ride is amazing, feeding the cassowary was fun and some adorable wallabies to pat. Shows were all very informative as well and entertaining.
  • We paid a bit extra to have a "private" tour and were richly rewarded by additional viewings/contacts and information imparted to us by our guide. We weren't obscured by crowd movement, murmuring and noises. Thoroughly entertaining on the general presentations too - the guides and handlers have senses of humour and patience. Taking advantage of the complementary extra 2days pass to return on Saturday afternoon.
  • Great all round experience. Although a bit out of the way for us, pwe were definitely pleased we made the effort. A great range of wildlife and the staff were very interesting and informative in their shows. The kids were exhausted half way through so the option to return the second day on the same ticket was appreciated.
  • Fantastic family-friendly park which kept our kids (ages 3 to 13) engaged and entertained for the day. A great way to see and interact with native Australian wildlife which, for the most part, we'd only previously read about in books. Friendly & informative staff, well kept exhibits, nice walking paths which are easily navigated and have plenty of shade. The looks on the kids faces when they got to hand-feed and pet the kangaroos were priceless. Definitely price of admission.
