  • Got a really good deal on the annual pass ! It is really good value for students as well. Coffee and food are not great. So pack your own food. There are a number of shows to fill up half a day. The variety of animals tho would leave one wanting. But its a koala sanctuary so you'd understand that the focus is on the koalas. Head to the koala room for more information about koalas, there is a viewing gallery for their meal preparation and you might even catch a koala having a small procedure done by the vets. Photos with a koala is inexpensive and its for a good cause! So why not!
  • My 4 year old loved this place. We both had a great time looking at all the animals. The bird of prey show is awesome. It's really up close and personal. The staff are quite friendly and the zoo itself is just the right size for a day trip. You can also get photos holding a koala if you're into that sort of thing.
