I have been to many zoos, but this was incredible. Only a short drive from Hobart. The zoo has many animals from birds to lions. The feeding safari is a great experience. Quite reasonably priced.

Our trip to Zoodoo was on a cold day but there was plenty of animals to see and even touch! Great options for all ages and some surprising animals. The animal feeding via the truck/tour is heaps of fun!
