Brilliant bird displays

Lovely day out. The meer cats and wallabies were delightful, even saw a baby joey coming out from mum's pouch.

Enjoy talking my son here. The play area is very good, lots of birds to see and the wallabys are very friendly. Took out the years pass on first visit.

Extra excitement was... More
