“Vast and amazing place”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

The place is huge to start with and boasts of numerous animals and birds. The place has good sign boards to keep you on track. There are specific timings when you can watch the zoo keepers feed the animals and they are displayed all around. The best part was where we got to feed a giraffe and could picture it. I would specially comment on their birds collection...its vast.
If you are an animal lover this place is a must visit, and even if you are not it is a good day out!!!

“Tiger disappointment”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Zoo was ok, but seen better, not as good as Christchurch zoo. Tigers were really disappointing as they were not able to be seen, Big compound for them but not out on display (all day) when asked where they were, was told they were sleeping.

“What a great place to hang out !”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

WOW - the seals were amazing - we would go there just to see them again. But in all honesty the whole zoo is just a great place to take the kids, hang out and have some fun. Loads of places to have a picnic if you want to and lots of play ground equipment for the kids if you just want to sit back for a bit. All of the staff and zoo keepers were just brilliant. Never too busy to chat and answer questions - they made our visit a great one. Thank you!
