I was skeptical about this trip, but it was so much more than a zoo. Lots of walking to see all the sites. One cup of kangaroo food is enough for a couple of people to share.

I mistakenly thought after reading some tourist brochures that we would get through the CWS in a couple of hours. I was so wrong. The kids and I could have easily spent the entire day here. There was so much to see and do. The...More

Good opporunties for animal interaction. The bird population seems to have dropped off in recent times, but as they are wild this cannot be helped. Worth a visit.

During my visit one show was going on during day time. Like many other attractions, here also they display such show timings. Once you reach there look for the timings and you may get a chance.
