Hubby and I had such a fun and educational day out here! We are both animal lovers and have been to zoos all over the world but we both agreed here was one of our favourite experiences. The park isn’t huge but there are plenty...More

We spent nearly 3 hours at Snakes Downunder today and our family loved it. There is a lovely intimate feel to the small zoo where the experts provide informative guides about snakes, koalas and crocodiles. Our 6 year old daughter loved feeding the friendly kangaroos...More

A small park, the zoo is mainly about snakes and crocodiles (as the name suggests) although is does have a few other exhibits! The staff are very attentive and do a very good job of ensuring the visit is worth it. Shows are worth staying...More
