  • We loved it. The gardens and zoo are free, so we were happy to spend money on other things like food and souvenirs. Great place! This is our second time coming to this place on our trips around Australia. Can only recommend it! Don't miss it!
  • It's a great place for young and old to explore. Refreshments are available at the kiosk, which is surrounded by huge Banyan trees. Watch out for the cheeky rainbow lorikeets though, as they might steal your food. Kids love the zoo, especially baby chimpanzee, Capri.
