I actually prefer this zoo over Taronga. I found the layout MUCH better and the price is ridiculously cheaper, especially if you bundle with some of the other attractions. Not to mention you have to pay for an expensive boat ride to get to Taronga...More

I imagine this place is great for small children to learn about animals but disappointing as a tourist attraction. I felt sorry for the animals and the small enclosures they were kept in. Even the huge crocodile didn't have a big space. A lot of...More

Probably better suited to children than pensioners, they would probably enjoy it more. Having previously seen many of the animals and reptiles in their natural environment, it was a bit tame to watch them in a zoo.More

Hi RG02, Thankyou for your review. The great thing about seeing our Australian animals in a zoo is that you get to learn all about them, what they eat, their habitat, behaviors, and of course how to protect them. We are all about raising awareness,...More

Great for tourists. Heaps of native animals to see. Areas were quite small though and would suggest seeing these animals in a more open area if the opportunity arises.More
