This place was great. Upon arrival, we were fed dinner and drinks (which were included, all you can drink..and they kept pouring..). The dinner was nothing special and there were a lot of pushy people there (and they weren't australians!). The staff was really nice and fun!
After dinner, we were ushered off into the night zoo, after taking our torches (flashlights). Upon our first stop, we actually ran into a death adder (one of the deadliest snakes) which wasn't part of the zoo and was just slithering along. Some of the stupid tourists hovered over it taking pictures, not caring that it was a deadly snake. ..that was a little annoying.
We went around and got to see all of the nocturnal animals, even petting the koalas and watching a demonstration of a crocodile being fed.
Afterwards, they led us to the kangaroo area, where we were fed damper bread (which is a kind of sweet sticky bread) and billy tea, while walking around with the kangaroos. This was the part of the tour that really aggravated me because some of these tourists just have no respect for animals, as they were taking pictures of the kangaroos with their flashes, which nearly blinded the kangaroos..and they were out of control. The staff should really advise people not to do this if they really care about the animals.
So afterwards, we went back to the front area and there was a little sing-along to some favorite australia songs, like waltzing matilda. The guitar player/singer was fun...
Then we were ushered out through the gift shop, of course. One of the animal handlers was holding a wombat and we got to pet him. It was one of the animals (besides the kangaroos and koalas) that I couldn't wait to see up close and personal and he was so cute! Of course, once again, the stupid tourists were pushing and shoving to get closeup.
Overall, this tour is great...unfortunately, there's no accounting for some of the obnoxious people that were there!
