Our family visited this zoo on Mother's Day. And we had a fantastic time. We chose to do the meerkats and marmoset encounters. Absolutely loved it. Got to spend plenty of time in the enclosure and the staff are very friendly. Well worth the price. But even if you just wanted to spend the day experiencing the park this is... More

While the zoo is smaller than most.........that's what makes it perfect. The interaction for children is amazing. The price you pay to do a private interaction is fantastic and John who takes you through is absolutely fantastic with the children. My grandson Seth just loved it. Especially the Meerkats.

We had looked forward to visiting this zoo but unfortunately it did not live up to its 'billing'. We were on a visit from the Uk so expected to see Platypus, Tasmania devils and koala bears to say the least plus many others. There weren't any platypus to my husbands dismay. The koala bear was asleep but the Tasmania Devils... More

This is a lovely place to visit. Its only small but all of the staff and animal are great! The best part of the zoo is going on the Safari Bus. You get too feed emus, pat Zebara's (I have never known any other zoo to do this) and get kisses from camels! The zoo itself could do with a... More

We made a trip to Tassie with friends and what an experience. Was surprised at the cost and what you got for it. Nowhere in Australia can you experience such wonderful encounters with animals at such a cheap price. The young capuchin is such a character, we had a few laughs at its antics 😆Facing my fear of big cats... More

It was a cold winters day but we still enjoyed our time at the zoo. Feeding lions through the fence, patting the reptiles to the open cart ride to feed emu's zebra's and camels was totally enjoyable.

Guides and staff at Zoodoo were not only friendly and professional but were passionate about the animals and their work. Loved being able to get up close and personal with the animals. Feeding the lion, petting the snake and goanna, feeding the emus and cuddling the camels.

Enjoyed our day at Zoodoo, you get to do a lot of things you wouldn't do elsewhere, like patting zebras and camels and feeding lions! The petting zoo area was good, the animals loved to be fed however a lot of the wallabies etc didn't like to be patted, which was a little disappointing since we've seen tamer wild ones.... More
