    Puedes darle de comer a los canguros y tomarte fotos gratis con los koalas, no es necesario pagar para las fotos

    Excellent day out. You’ll need a full day so don’t think you can cram it in with any less. There’s a lot including the shows which are all worth seeing!

    Must try the animal encounter. Better reserve it online in advance, especially for popular one, ex: Koala.

    Variety of animals to see, option to take your own pace. There are some animals out and about (with attendants), giving little ones a chance to get close. Wombat on a leash was one example.

    The zoo is a very big place. Take the shuttle to stop 5 (Africa) and walk back from there. Especially in summer.

    The best seats for the Crocoseum show are near the exits half way up the stands.

    The animal show at 12 was fantastic. Liked the giraffe and rhino enclosures as well. Very big and roomy.

    A plastic, commercial, US-like experience!!! Not for real animal lovers nor people interested in scientific facts. It's all about money and show. Should be called 'kids amusement park' instead of zoo.

    Everything is really expensive but when you take into account the amazing things they do and all the animals they care for and feed it's worth it. The staff are lovely and helpful. Wonderful place.

    Get to the wildlife warriors show a bit early and grab a seat above exit 5, 6, 10 or 11 to get up close and personal with the birds that star in the show.

    Best Zoo I've ever been to! The animal shows are amazing - definitely go there! My favourite was the Koala walk - it's just so cute to be so close to those animals. You can even pat some if you like!
