“Great variety of animals in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

The prices for the Brevard zoo has gone up in the last few years but so has the quality of animals. You can hand feed Giraffes there. They have a water play area for the kids. The only reason i don't give it a 5 is because i wish they had more cats like they did in the past. My daughter had a birthday party there and she had it in their giant tree house and then had a hands on experience. It is definitely worth a trip there.

“A beautiful zoo, combination of animals, nature, & adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

My entire family really enjoyed our trip to this zoo. Great little adventure! Even our teenagers enjoyed it. Recommend that you get there early if you want to do the zip-line because it often sells out by mid morning. Make sure to do the 15 minute train ride. We had fun feeding the birds when they sat on our hands and shoulders. You can take a paddle boat thru the open water area or for more of an adventure go kayaking thru parts of the zoo. We were there about 4 hours, highly recommend!!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Great zoo - Well kept - clean - lots of kid zones
If you have a kid, you can't go wrong here.
Even as an adult is a good place to visit and view some of florida's wildlife.
Decent food and picnic area

A definite place to visit when in Melbourne.

“Nice little zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Well kept zoo takes 2-3 hours to see all exhibits. Be sure to get adventure pass so it includes giraffe and bird feedings. It also includes small kayak tour
