    Newly expanded! The upper level of the zoo connects around to the giraffes and is so beautifully designed

    If you live nearby it's totally worth a year pass. Only $100 and if you renew before it expires only $85.

    Awesome day. Good time of day we went, 10am. The animals were being fed and where quite active for most of the visit.

    The sausage sizzle is the win for lunch. $2.50. Check in for a free coffee but bring your own healthy snacks for the kids.

    The free coffee is a great way to end your visit, while the kids watch the monkeys and enjoy an icecream.
