My only regret was not buying the feed to feed the animals at the entrance (where we buy the tickets) as by the time we reached the wallabies it was a way away to walk. So buy it with your ticket! You won't regret it....More

We didn't have high expectations but were pleasantly surprised. The zoo is on the smaller side but lovely. There are varied animals and seveal interactive areas where you can touch and feed the animals. Good for young children.

OH MY GOD I LOVED THIS ZOO. Ok, so feeding the meerkats might have swayed my opinion a bit. But honestly, it's great value and there is a whole range of animals here. It's very hands on and the keepers and staff are all really...More
