My boyfriend and I stopped here as part of a tour we were on heading to the Great Barrier Reef. This zoo is so well done. It is a smaller zoo so it meant when there were presentations, there was plenty of room and no crowding.

This was a great day out with young family. Low key and informative. Small park and friendly staff. Interactive presentations. Croc show was a must.

Got a chance to click pictures with a Koala, Saltwater baby Crocodile & a Python all for free. They also have an Emu and Kangaroos roaming in their own little park. They also have a snake & croc show that you should catch.

Form the time you enter you will be amazed by how much this well kept zoo has to offer. Every moment of your visit can be filled with wonder if you look in the right places and attend the shows. A joy to visit with family or friends.
