Don’t bother to stop here unless you wish to have your food stolen by the bids. Very unnerving for little children when they swoop down and steal the food off the tables/ your hands. Remember Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds?

We were expecting to see many animals native to Australia but compared to other places in the area it was very tired and downbeat. The staff were great and we loved seeing the crocodiles being fed.

Called in here on a chance driving past. Brilliant little centre with an array of Australian wildlife including Wallabies and fish. The kids loved the short walk where you can interact with the Wallabies. Great way to spend a couple of hours if nearby

This used to be a lovely place to visit - took a visitor there on Sunday (21 Oct 2018) and it was awful. A few miserable looking reptiles and that's it. When I paid, they failed to tell us the wildlife centre was under renovation....More

Expected a little more when we visited on a rainy Sunday. They only have a few lizards and snakes and three or four aquariums with fish and turtles in the reptile area, and my favourite- the platypus. All animals were super active though which made...More
