WOW what an amazing a well organised Zoo set in beautiful surroundings which makes it very special.
I have a 2.5-year-old and a 4.5-year-old, and I will say the 4.5-year-old enjoyed it more than the 2.5-year-old. the 4.5-year-old enjoyed patting, touching and getting photos with the animals and their keepers. This is a great experience to be able to see snakes, koala’s, lizards, dingo’s, wombats and many more animals close up.
The mid-day show was a highlight seeing the birds fly around the arena and the crocodile show was really engaging and enjoyable, the kids loved seeing the crocodile jump out of the water and sat through the whole show.
We did take our own snacks with us but bought lunch at the zoo, I found there was a wide variety of food and prices to be expected and on par with other zoo's I have visited.
I did find the zoo to be extremely large and with 2 kids on a humid day it was too big to walk around all day. They do have a bus that goes around the zoo and stops at certain parts this is great and does help to get to the furthest part of the zoo, however I think it would be nicer if it would drive so you can see some animals on your way, this would help for the littler kids.
I also felt trying to fit in the experiences/shows and look at the full zoo is just too much. We missed a lot of shows trying to walk around and see the animals. We did get a family photo with a Koala which was a highlight.
I think 1 day with small kids is not enough (if you want to see the full zoo and shows). I would go back again to see what we have missed out on but would wait a few years to do so.
