To be fair, we came here after having been at the Unzoo in Tasmania. But this was just a zoo by another name in another setting. Do not think it is worth a special trip from Sydney.

This is a great zoo for those seeking Australia-specific wildlife, i.e. for those visiting Australia and looking for koalas, kangaroos, wombats, dingos, and the like. For those seeking lions and tigers and bears, you probably need to go to Taronga. This is also a good...More
