Reviewed 2 January 2012

A very informative and enjoyable experience. Getting up close to a platypus and interaction with the echidnas was a real treat.

“Sounded expensive but worth the money”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

Guided tours are the only option and I usually hate them (maybe I got lucky?). Small groups starting with very good cinema presentation and then a walk through of tanks etc with excellent and informed commentary. Lots of photo ops and the Echidna exhibit is also included. The place sounds like a usual tourist trap but it really is worth a look.
