“Great place to see wildlife in the city.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

The wildlife dome was really nice to see wildlife in the city. I recommend going to the talks/feedings as it is a great way to see the animals closer up. Also, all the birds may fly freely within the dome, so it is easy to get nice pictures of them.

“Great attraction for kids”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Value for money, you get issued with a 4 day pass, so you can keep going back.
Interactive with birds landing on you so you can feed them. Crocodile talk was interesting

Such a little hidden gem up there - though the ticket price is extorionate - although you do get all-day access and access to various shows throughout the day too.

Some of the animals are loose, running around freely - look out for the parrot who takes your money off you and puts it into his charity box for you.

The koalas looked very sad though :( - and I didnt like to see them be passed around so much for photographs!

“Wildlife Dome”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The wildlife dome on top of the Reef Casino was pretty good. You can spend about an hour here. There are talks about different animals. When we went there was a lot of construction as they are building a large zip line and eco tour area inside the dome. They had a fresh water croc talk and my son got to hold a baby croc. The price of a ticket during construction was $19 per person but they let us come back as many times as we liked for 4 days to compensate for the the construction

“indoor animals?”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Just seemed a bit weird to have all these animals indoors. Felt like the worst kind of zoo- so little space.. not recommended
