I love the penguins and polar bears! It was really exotic for me and I strongly recommend it! Even with the family, it was a nice day out!

The zoo is quite large with lake and beautiful flowers. The place where they have animals are all quite clean. You can see the animals very close to you. Some parts of the zoo you can also feed and interact with the animals. This zoo is one of the best zoos I've ever visited.

Just over the road from the rail station is the zoo and was far bigger than we thought so spent longer than anticipated. They had a good selection of animals and we were passing when the polar bears were being fed and there is an observation window looking into the water and it was a delight to see a polar... More

I though it was nice to be small where it can turn into a 2-hour activity for kids. There is a small play ground, cafe, and boat ride (relaxing but expensive). What was particularly nice is the section where kids are allowed to touch young sheep and goats.

I was expecting this zoo to be tiny based on the other reviews, but it actually takes hours to get around! Very reasonablypriced with children under 6 free. Great selection of animals with only a couple of empty cages. We got to see the penguins being fed and you can feed the carp and the farm animals for 20c. We... More
