  • We live in Melbourne. Great for Families with children. Make sure you arrive before 8 am or you will miss the bird feeding experience. Good animal shows and experiences. The miniature trains rides make a great way to get around as there is lots of walking to do. Over all a fun day out.
  • Always loved it. Been there over 7 times and never got bored. It is the place that I usually bring anybody that comes from overseas for the first time in Australia and wants to see the Australian wild life for the first time. Highly recommended. It is a must when you come to visit, especially for the first. Far better the most of the other zoos around.
