  • Peaceful gardens. Areas for the kids to have fun and be noisy while others can take a nice stroll. Expensive food. Birds will swoop for chips. Great entertainment if you sit outside.
  • Born & bred in Rocky this zoo has changed a lot. While the gardens are well kept the animals are not so. Ive never seen animals more bored, depressed in my life. I think they need to take a page out of Cooberrie's book on educating people about animals, interaction, activities.
  • One word for this place... Beautiful!!! I absolutely loved it. Extremely pleasant to walk around. There are a multitude of things around such as the memorial, zoo and Japanese garden. Very relaxing to explore!
  • Wonderful classic Australian Botanic Garden and municipal zoo. Good mix of open parkland, tree groves and bedded areas. Large, well equipped picnic area and children's playground. Kiosk with outdoor seating area, which attracts abundant local birdlife.
  • Aweskme place . Peacefull . U can see crocodile and kuala bear .
