A good outing for kids. The zoo is located along the banks of the Shoalhaven River and is very peaceful. They have a variety of animals, and do informative presentations. A bit spread out, and some exhibitions were better than others.

the venue has a great vantage point overlooking the Shoalhaven River. The food, in our case, nuggets and chips and wedges all washed down with banana milkshakes and an ice coffee was fresh and hot.

A small zoo, but had some little extras for more adventurous kids, particularly the adventure walk which can be a little hard to locate, but was quite exciting and demanding climbing up and over rocks. The big slide near the entrance was great fun for kids. Café had a good range of food for kids. The Trees Adventure ropes course... More

We visited this cafe while our family visited the adjacent tree adventure. The cafe is great and the staff lovely and the zoo was pleasant.

I was not expecting much when taken here - but it was superb. The easiest and best way to understand and see Australian wildlife. This is the zoo where the keeper had his fingers bitten off by a saltwater crocodile six months ago (you can see it on YouTube). The talks were excellent and the staff clearly love their work...

The park itself is neat and well maintained but lacks a lot of animals. The prices to get in are quite hefty when you consider this, but it is usually one of the few ways they can survive which is understood. The café had nice coffee and snack like food, and the service was okay.
