  • It's a good place to go for half a day. Nice variety of animals and exhibitions to enjoy and learn from. The staff are knowledgeable and approachable. It's a bit expensive at the gate so make sure you buy group tickets if you're going with your family
  • It is like walking in to a zoo. Too many visitors allowed in for more money for the establishment. It is too crowded, you are always collide with other visitors. Air conditioning is not enough for the crowd. It is steaming hot inside you could hardly breathe. The ambiance is not conductive to entertainments and education. There is now crowd control. They should limit number of visitors by timed ticketing. You do not learn anything with too much noise and crowd. I do not recommend this place for visit especially when you have only limited time to be in Sydney. You have better off spending your time and money elsewhere? I hope that you heed my advice so you will not regret that I have told you so.
