We visited this park on our way from Sydney to Nelson. I was very impressed with this park - there was so much to see and the grounds seemed vast! We happily spent two and half hours here. Informative talks are given by staff and the vast array of different animals were easily accessible and very visible. I particularly liked... More

The park presents just the right combination of size, shows and animal diversity. In addition to nice reptile exhibitions, they also have a small collection of Australian mammals like platypus, achindea, koala, dingo, wombat and others. The park is not very large, and getting to the different exhibitions and areas is easy and fun. I was with my three kids,... More

Any place with lots of animals is great for kids and adults. Place itself is kind of half finished as far as the buildings etc are concerned. I like animals so I still enjoyed the experience but it's no Taronga Zoo.

I've been wanting to bring my 14yr old here for years and thinking if I told I was going to stop here he would say no! To my surprise he was just as excited as I was. We followed the map saw everything and you do not need to be there all day to do so. My excitement was having... More

Really great place to take the children. Not very big but they can get hands on. Food is a little expensive , but there are plenty of picnic areas to take your own lunch. Kangaroos roam free so kids really enjoy getting up close an able to feed them.

Great for kids and educational for everyone. Can touch and even hold some baby animals. Easy to find. Easy to park. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Not too large, with lots of trees for a shady picnic lunch (wooden picnic tables and benches provided). Suitable for the whole family and reasonably priced for whole day out.

This is not a huge zoo but perfect for children as its not alot of walking around in the heat. The kangaroos roaming free is a real delight. Plenty of exhibitions re spiders and snakes and plenty of seating areas. The ancient galapagos turtle is just amazing at 65yrs old. Just a great place to take the grandchildren.

I love this place because they have kangaroos free ranging the park, which means we can feed them and take photos with them! I also love the galapagos tortoises, they have background stories and are very cute when eating. Don't forget to see the alligator show, you can pet the young gator, and don't worry because the staff are very... More

Great family environment - open green space for picnics. This is then surrounded by easy and accessible walks through the park to view wildlife (birds, snakes, alligators, dingoes, wallabies/kangaroos and others etc, demonstration arena for shows). Both relaxing, informative and entertaining
