This is a great little wildlife zoo that is well worth a visit. Adult entry is $28 which I feel is acceptable given the amount of effort & upkeep that no doubt goes into running such a place. There is a wide variety of animals, a lot of natives plus some cheetahs, giraffes, bison, meerkats & red panda. It was... More

A nice zoo, a good variety of animals to see. The interaction with the animals, experience, hand feeding etc was very good. However need to review your pricing. Melb and Werribee zoo's, way cheaper

Great range of animals and good information about each one, including habitat, lifestyle, diet and any other interesting facts. They also provided information about the workings of the zoo (for example the history of specific animals or any special treatment they were getting). We actually found the information on the animals way better than what you get at the Melbourne... More
