Each time we visit is a fresh experience, full of interest. The big cats are a favorite and the monkeys are a hoot. Love the koalas and colorful birds, flamingoes and spoonbills.

What a lovely zoo! Great place to spend a few hours. The interactive shows with the staff and animals were interesting and good fun. All enclosures looked clean and a decent size. The Bears were a highlight! All staff were friendly and the price was very reasonable.

This zoo is in the middle of a housing neighborhood. It is small, shaded and easy to get around, even in a scooter. You can see the animals clearly.

In the Summer time go in the morning or late in the day if you want to see the animals. Fun place we... More

It is not the biggest zoo but the kids love it and it is not too exhausting for the parents. It is probably best for younger kids.
