Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

A very spread out park with minimal shade, but very well done. Pay extra for an animal encounter; Jane the yellow python was adorable and the keeper delightful. A fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon of a long weekend.

“Lovely Regional Zoo..”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Good range of animals, with many local/australian species. Friendly deers will follow you around wanting to be fed from little bags you can purchase on entry. Several "up close and personal' experiences are available for a little extra.. and well worth it. :)

Being able to get up close to the animals!
The easy walking circuit meant you didn't miss seeing any of the animals

“Fun Day Out!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We came here Australia Day weekend, the weather was very hot however didn't detract from the zoo. There is alot of variety of native and non-native animals and lots of opportunities to feed animals. The entry price is very resonable. We also did animal encounter and feed the meer-cats, feeding the meer-cats was only $25 and was a huge highlights, the staff were very friendly and helpful. i strongly recommend checking the zoo out!
