We went to Plantasia for something to do & enjoyed seeing the meerkats, different plant species, birds, reptiles and fish. It was quiet and interesting. We probably spent under an hour there because it is quite small, but inexpensive and entertaining if you enjoy wildlife...More

We went to see Plantasia many years ago, and returning to the area with an additional family member (our little lad) we decided to visit again. Entry was cheap and staff helpful, but the place is a lot smaller and, frankly, less interesting that it...More

Torrential rain all day forced us to find indoor activities. We went to Plantasia. It's a nice little place but it doesn't keep you busy for that long. We had a good look at everything and did some stuff in the craft area and we...More

We arrived and found the small venue and the entrance price was reasonable. Lady on desk was polite and talked to me as I’m blind. The guy on the desk explained a quiz to our son and we went exploring. Great tropical forest with ample...More

It's not very big and doesn't take a lot of time to explore. Nevertheless there is interesting flora and fauna collection. Good for rainy days
