“Mini zoo - great for tourists with limited time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

This mini-zoo is well set out and has many of the popular Australian animals. We visited with an active 3 year old and were in and out within 45 minutes, however you could easily spend 1.5-2 hours. It is a great option for tourists with limited time or young families that would find a full day in a bigger zoo too much.

“Great for first time visitors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

My husband and I were trying to find something to do on our last day in Sydney and only had a couple of hours at most. This "miniature" zoo was very pleasant but obviously geared towards overseas visitors. The keepers we spoke to were very dedicated to the animals in their care. Overall nice time filler for a full zoo experience though Taronga is obviously the best choice.

“Wildlife zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Great if your time is restricted and you want to spend a few hours expanding your knowledge on Australian natives. The zoo keepers are knowledgeable and passionate about their jobs, the animals look well cared for and there are opportunities to get up close and personal.

“Koalas and kangaroos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Much, much better than expected. Not huge cages for the animals, but larger than expected. Australian animals. Very interesting and great to combine with the aquarium next door.
