  • This attraction is an absolute credit to the workers and volunteers. Our family had a day that we thought was going to be just a few hours turned in to all day. Beautifully kept and so sparkling...  more »
  • We had a great day meeting a lot of different animals. The bird and reptile shows were fantastic and the magpie was too cute.  more »
  • We live in Melbourne. Great for Families with children. Make sure you arrive before 8 am or you will miss the bird feeding experience. Good animal shows and experiences. The miniature trains rides make a great way to get around as there is lots of walking to do. Over all a fun day out.
  • Always loved it. Been there over 7 times and never got bored. It is the place that I usually bring anybody that comes from overseas for the first time in Australia and wants to see the Australian wild life for the first time. Highly recommended. It is a must when you come to visit, especially for the first. Far better the most of the other zoos around.
