This zoo is perfect for people of all ages. We especially liked feeding the lorikeets but the girrafe exhibit was also really amazing. The animals look healthy however they could use a bit more space. You can easily see everything in about 2 hours or...More

Great, clean zoo to take young children. Not too big. Don't forget to bring extra clothes and pack a lunch to play in the stream and picnic afterwards!

Overall the park was excellent, staff friendly/helpful. Allow min. of 2 hours. But there are special events and feeding times if you have the time to stay a bit longer. Relaxing atmosphere. Most attractions are outdoors, go during nice weather if possible. Enjoy!
