We thoughts this was a fun adventure. Our son loved feeding the kangaroos and being able to pet them. Along with feeding the birds. The cave tour was beautiful! Recommend to go first thing in the morning.

$28.50 adults $15.50 kids Groupon provides a good discount. Full price is definitely way overpriced.
