Very unexpected the amount of animals that the Zoo contains. Meercats, Jaguars and many native animals to name a few. Its a long walk around and would not be great on a very hot day we all enjoyed the visit.

I was truly stunned by the collection of animals in this zoo. Some of the animals are not found in any other zoo in Victoria (at least I have not seen). Nice easy walk around the zoo and very well maintained.

Not usually a zoo fan but I really enjoyed this one. Kids enjoyed feeding some animals and the meerkat encounter, liked seeing the bison, monkeys and cheetahs - wow!
