Had an amazing meerkat experience at the zoo. Met lovely staff, very informative. Jen who did all the shows was fabulous. Such a beautiful peaceful setting right on the river as well. Loved it!

My children loved the slide and the petting zoo (especially the rabbits). There was a good selection of birds and Australian natives, and a smattering of other animals.

We did the Ultimate Keeper Experience - so we didn't pay the standard entry fee. The Keeper Experience is $100/person for 2 people. Food was separate - it's not a big menu but it's reasonably priced food.
