We last visited when our oldest was 3 (now 11). For the kids it is a great little Zoo. For the kids, the two highlights are always the lorikeet feeding and the flamingo show. This time even the 10 month old was smiling the entire time. Sadly the jaguar passed away this year. Also many of the cages were being... More

We went to the zoo on a cruise shore excursion. It was a great, simple day. We really enjoyed feeding the birds for free, got some great pictures. Then saw the flamingo show. It was a nice relaxing trip. Be sure to bring cash for the snack bar or to buy pictures or souvenirs. Gift shop only takes credit card... More

We have been here twice and never disappointed, the shows with the marching flamingos is spectacular and the entrance to the zoo is affordable, make sure you got your cameras ready for those shots and enjoy the afternoon. Bring water since it gets hot and enjoy the feeding the birds with rotten apples, they love it and you can take... More

We went to Ardastra Gardens Zoo on a whim, because we wanted to see a few tropical animals, and they have bunnies - which my wife simply loves. The zoo is small and intimate - but there's a lot to do, and don't be fooled by the size - there's plenty of animals to see. You'll be able to walk... More

This is a great little local zoo with some beautiful trees, flowers and ponds to go with it a short distance from the cruise ship dock. We headed off the ship, to the main street and down a few blocks, where we caught the #10 bus on the corner opposite a big red ice cream shop. For $1.25 apiece, we... More

It was warm and humid and the flamingo show got a little ong waiting for other tourists to settle in and take pictures. Overall, a great little place that serves rum punches!

Animals located among green vegetation. Feeding the Lorie parrots is a highlight as well as the march of the flamingos. Parrots on stands by refreshment stand are quite entertaining.
