Great for my 3yr and 2yr old kids. It's small and affordable. Easy for them to get around with entertaining and informative animal talks. The lions were a bit underwhelming as they were not really interested in the feed or a show but het can't...More

My children loved the slide and the petting zoo (especially the rabbits). There was a good selection of birds and Australian natives, and a smattering of other animals.

Plenty to do, plenty of animals and exhibits. Lots of live shows and interaction with the animals. Allow half a day and take a hat if its warm.

There is wheelchair access, the paths through the zoo are crushed granite so some areas are uneven, but plenty of prams and wheelchairs do come in. There is a disability toilet

We did the Ultimate Keeper Experience - so we didn't pay the standard entry fee. The Keeper Experience is $100/person for 2 people. Food was separate - it's not a big menu but it's reasonably priced food.
