Wonderful local place to take the children. To listen to birdsong and look at the most beautiful butterflies is heaven. Like I said in my title it is such a shame that this place is closing down, it will be sorely missed by the locals.

I was really surprised and how big and diverse this small zoo is. It's a real shame it's closing. Highlight of the visit was the Butterflys and Meerkats.

We love this place. As a family we spend hours at Tropical Wings. To hear that it is closing down is really sad. It had everything. Helpful staff, nice food, superb butterfly house, wonderful zoo and a great play area for our son.
