We visited the zoo as part of a tour while on a disney cruise. This is a very small zoo with very few exhibits, however, it was quiet, a perfect getaway from the sun and the staff were very kind. We took our time and walked through the small paths at our own leisure. We especially loved the bird feeding;... More

It was a great place to visit if you had kids, for my wife and I on a romantic getaway it was maybe a little too small and not that engaging. I would definitely recommend for a family trip though.

great experience, beautiful exotic birds everywhere. You can experience up close and personal encounters if you wish. Many more animals than just birds. Also the plant life is beautiful and interesting as well. Grounds are gorgeous, kind of set up like a jungle paradise. oh yeah... the Black Swan does exist!

The Gardens are nice and not too many people around. Some wildlife, too. Recommend as a break from the city life.

Visited Ardastra Zoo 9/2/14, it is a little tiny zoo but full of charachter. Many birds and free roaming flamingos! I enjoyed the zoo very much. It isn't for everyone, not a lot of animals but birds are my favorite so I was not disappointed.

I'm not a negative person or poster so i was hesitant to write this review but a friend asked me about Ardastra Gardens and I had to be honest - it's far too pricey for what it is. This attraction is very run down, not a lot of animals or interesting gardens. Honestly not worth the cab fair and especially... More

We were allowed to go into the cage and feed the birds. Saw peacocks everywhere. Got to take pictures standing with the pink flamingos.

This was a little zoo. We visited for the flamingo military march. It wasn't what we thought it would be but if you have small children they get to stand in the ring with the flamingos. Another thing us that the snack bar has a full menu but they only carry 3%!
