  • If you do visit better pay the extra 31.00 for the golf cart rental. The zoo pens are spaced out & a lot of hills to navigate. The animals are well cared for & I would say the best part was getting to...  more »
  • I do like that they provide a military and student discount. They don't have the lizard house anymore or the cow milking demonstration. You do get to pet the kangaroos and emus. The bird attraction is...  more »
  • We enjoyed going to all of the animal exhibits at the zoo, especially the ones where you can feed them. We ate at the food shack and felt that the prices were reasonable and we enjoyed it. We would re...  more »
  • My fiance and I were looking for fun things to do with my two younger boys while on Summer Vacation and happened to find a Groupon for four tickets to Kentucky Down Under. The main draw of this place is the kangaroos.. I mean come on..a kangaroo petting zoo..that sounded like a great day, and it didn't disappoint. Feed is available to purchase and they come right up to you. There is also a bird area that you can go in and feed
  • My husband and I had the best time at this zoo today! We rented a golf cart which was well worth it on a hot day like today. We saw lots of birds, goats, sheep, kangaroos, and more! The thing that is so great about this place is how interactive you are able to be with the animals. We loved being able to feed the birds as they landed on us and hanging out with the kangaroos. Such a fun environment for everyone!
  • A fabulous place to take your kids!!! Not a big place but get there early or later in the afternoon to take advantage of the golf carts they offer. Not necessary but nice on a hot day. Make sure to take the cave tour into the Onyx mine and catch the dog herding show, those dogs are amazing!
  • We had a blast here! The kids loved it. The kangaroos were our favorite. The zoo and kangaroo keeper get 2 thumbs up from us. What an experience we will never forget. Thanks kentucky down under!
  • Very enjoyable for parents and children alike, having much to do in various avenues. From petting kangaroos to caving to eating fudge. I would warn that small children be watched carefully, especially in the petting zoo area. Despite being very tame, some of the animals could easily hurt someone if they wanted to. The staff is very competent, and enjoyable to listen to.
