Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just don't expect a full zoo experience. It's a great little zoo for the area and it's free and next to the park and the boardwalk to the river.gorgeous views. The zoo has a very skinny dingo and his mate,emus,lots of reptiles and cotton top monkeys and lots of beautiful colourful parrots that are just stunning. The cotton tops are fun to watch,they are so small and cute. Make a day of it with a picnic in the park and a walk along the river ..it's lovely

While it is free, it is small. Small cages and not really very good for photos. Good for kids. Sadly we just missed the dingo walk, which would have been great to see.

A small, well-presented free zoo run by the Bundaberg City Council - one which I reviewed 8 years ago. And it looks like it is very capably run with at least four staff in uniform that I observed and clean, neatly presented enclosures for the animals, reptiles, and birds. The staff were only too willing to interact with visitors and answer questions.

Gorgeous little zoo, and it's free. Great lace monitors and lace monitors and the monkeys were adorable. Apparently they take the dingoes out for walks which would be amazing to see.

The park is also lovely.

Cute little place to spend 30-45 minutes. Not a huge zoo but it has a good selection of native animals plus some cheeky cotton-top tamarin monkeys. It's easy to walk around and see the exhibits up close. Best of all, it's completely free!

Well maintained and easily accessible. The playground and amenities along with the little zoo would make a great spot for a day out with friends and family. Gorgeous little picnic spot.
The animal enclosures are clean and maintained, well designed. Easy for little humans to see the animals also.
We're so glad to have wondered through, especially taking the time to chat with the sulphur crest cockatoos.💚

A small cute zoo with a handful of animals. The tamarin and the reptiles were interesting. Good for anyone who has 30 minutes or so to spare in their travels.
