What people are saying:

This wonderful and well-laid-out zoo offers a chance to see unique Australian wildlife that you rarely get the opportunity to spot in normal life. There’s a duckbilled platypus, wombats, Tasmanian devils and koalas, as well as the more easily spotted kangaroos and emus. It was great to get up close to animals like the platypus and wombats.
