We visited the zoo on a rainy Sunday and had it pretty much to ourselves. Loved the new meerkat enclosure and, as always, the monkeys. We were warned when we arrived that some animals might not be out because of the weather, but we weren't...More

The design of enclosures and surrounding vegetation is first class. No wonder the inhabitants appear relaxed, especially with the care they have from keepers and veterinary staff.

Worth a visit. We had a nice afternoon checking out the animals. Food inside was good and the ice cream was excellent. If you have kids they will love it. Besides the animals there are heaps of play areas for them.

They have done a lot of good things since the last time I was here. Would like to go along to one of their evening dinner picnics with music, take your own or buy food there. Caught up with some rellies there
