If you visit this attraction on the multi pass then it’s ok, it’s not worth paying the large amount of money for this attraction. They have a lot of snakes, lizards and a few other animals. We finished going through the attraction is 30 minutes...More

Got this in a package together with the Sealife Aquarium, and that made it worth the money. I also didn't expect that kangaroos and koalas would be within touching distance everywhere! The koalas in particular were great. The crocodile enclosure was also a fun (but...More

An Australian wild life zoo in the heart of the Sydney city with Australian animals. Price wise, you’re best off getting a pass in combination with other entry tickets too. They’ve got plenty of Aussie animals and set out well.More

There is a small kangaroo enclosure at this zoo. There is a rope separating people from the kangaroo but you can get close enough for a photo but you would not be able to touch one.
