“Censored Second Review”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

After our first review was removed, or misplaced we still have a right to review our experience at the zoo.
It looks run down in the buildings and pathways, a good once over will get the mould off places.
I could ramble on but that might be the reason the first review disappeared.

We did also go to Breakfast with the Birds in Port Douglas a week later it was much better.

This review is based on my own experience and is my genuine opinion of this establishment.

“Too small a zoo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The zoo promised little animals to see and none stroke excitement the only part worth it was the aviary with parrots.

“Great fay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

What a great place and the wildlife is fantastic. One red tailed cockatoo flew down to my shoulder and then started talking and it was great. If you look hard around the place there is a lot of birds. To see. Enjoy the time there as it is wonderful

“Love this Zoo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This zoo is truly a place to visit at night especially if you are a tourist and you'd love to get up close and personal with Australian Animals. From the Aussie BBQ & drinks to the expert commentary from the staff make this a real experience. This was a second visit to the night zoo from Melbourne. It's the only place where I have seen Koala's actually awake and walking around.....and where you can give them a cuddle!

“Small intimate zoo lacking in variety but good for families”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Not a great variety of animals, i expected to see more, however they are well housed and cared for. The staff were very friendly especially the bird staff. If you want your photo taken with a koala this is the place for you, also they're effort in conservation is awesome!
