Wow! I’d recommend that everyone should visit this place to see the Australian wildlife. This is a beautifully kept sanctuary and is a paradise for all the creatures great and small that are kept here. The place is well maintained and easy to navigate.

During my visit one show was going on during day time. Like many other attractions, here also they display such show timings. Once you reach there look for the timings and you may get a chance.
