Wow what a fantastic Animal Encounter experience & value for money. We opted to do the 6 animal encounter experience & loved all of them even having a python wrapped around my shoulders turned out to be an amazing experience almost like a gentle body massage. There is a maximum of two people per experience so we had lots of... More

We are locals but still come here at least once a year. It's a nice half-day out but best of all is the Emu/Camel experience on the back of a truck which is included in the ticket price. You hold a cup of food with your dear life and emus stick their heads in and around people to peck at... More

Zoodoo Wildlife Park is the best place to visit and certainly worth the $28 admission fee. So many interesting animals and the park layout was perfect. The safari bus ride and the witty safari host made this day out adventure worth remembering. Highly recommended.

We visited the zoo first thing on a Friday morning- two families with young children. The zoo is tired looking, everything looked like it could use a good clean and at times the caged animals and their homes did raise uncomfortable questions regarding captivity. But the staff were friendly and the kids had a wonderful time. They loved seeing the... More

I visited Zoodoo with my parents (visiting from the uk) & my 3 children aged 10, 8 & 4! We all thoroughly enjoyed the day, particularly the up close encounters.. with rabbits, ponys, sheep, kangaroos, deer, emus, camels, zebras, reptiles & lion feeding! The kids have been to numerous zoos & voted this as the best one yet. The adults... More

We loved it. I was particularly impressed with the fact that people had a chance to interact with some of the animals in very controlled situations. I am a retired ecologist and have spent my career trying to get people to feel empathetic with wild animals and am well aware of the negative attitudes of many scientists about zoos and... More

My husband, myself, granddaughter and great grandson visited this zoo in February 2017. The advertisements for it depicted a well stocked attraction with a good grange of animals. The reality was something well short of this. Many of the areas were empty of the animals they were signposted as containing and where there were animals they were few and far... More

Thank you for your feedback about your visit to Zoodoo Zoo. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit. Zoodoo Zoo was built in 1999 so all of our animal enclosures or public areas are always undergoing an upgrade. We are constantly upgrading or reconstructing these areas of our zoo, but it is a very slow... More

This place is awesome! I recommend booking the encounter package. We had a wonderful escort in Alysia who lead us through the animal enclosures. Meeting and learning about the meerkats and marmoset monkeys was such a highlight as well as feeding the lions. Loved every minute of it.
