Just a short walk from Newquay's town centre and world famous surfing beaches, the Zoo is both one of Cornwall's most exciting visitor attractions and a leading conservation charity. It's the only place in Cornwall where you can see lions devour their lunch before taking a leisurely stroll through a tropical rainforest, surrounded by free flying birds. Keeper talks and animal feeds take place throughout the day but if you fancy an even closer animal encounter we offer visitors the chance to meet and feed our cheeky lemurs, friendly penguins and impossibly cute meerkats! See wildebeest, waterbuck, nyala antelope and zebra roaming in our African Savannah and enjoy some familiar faces in The Village Farm - one of our most popular exhibits which includes many children's favourites such as pot-bellied pigs, African pygmy goats, turkeys and striped squirrels. And if all that isn't enough to keep the kids amused, we also have activity trails, face painting, a children's play area, dragon maze...and much more. Besides enjoying a great family day out, when you visit Newquay Zoo you'll also be supporting our vital education, research and conservation work, all designed to protect endangered animals from extinction. We're playing a key role in the international effort to save animals through conservation breeding. « less

At the aquarium’s heart is the ocean tank where an underwater walk-through tunnel offers incredibly close encounters with the stunning beauty of a tropical coral reef – home to hundreds of colourful fish, tropical sharks in all shapes and sizes and Omiros the rescued loggerhead turtle. Other displays are home to everything from giant Pacific octopus, trigger fish and nautilus to cuttlefish, turtles and terrapins. Don't miss the freshwater Amazon display which is home to a pair of Cuvier’s dwarf caiman. « less
