I've been to zoo's in other cities and whilst Canberra zoo is by far the smallest, it's actually quite nice that you don't feel you have to rush around in order to see everything. Especially if you have small children in tow. It also has quite a personal/intimate feel about it. That said, they are currently building new exhibits that will almost double the size of the zoo. We had a lovely picnic in their picnic/bbq area up the back but it would be good if they had one up the front too.
