“I love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I stayed here 8 years ago with my daughter (9 at that time) and we had a wonderful time. For her it was one of the highlights of our trip to Oz as she got to bottle feed a wallaby called Mouse and to feed the emus. This June we made a return visit and Mouse was waiting outside our bedroom door - bigger but as cute and friendly as ever. It was a real pleasure to stay here. The room was large, clean and bright and opened out into the grounds of the zoo. We ate in the restaurant and it was a lovely home cooked meal - the burgers are enormous and as for the steak.... . After our meal we walked around the zoo in the dark finding our way with a flash-light. Breakfast was perfect - fresh mango juice, fresh fruit, croissants straight from the oven, lovely breads, jams and local honey. It was so lovely to have the zoo to ourselves for a few hours. A great place to visit but I do agree with one reviewer that it is a shame the price of the zoo is added on to the bill even if it is at half-price. Owners are friendly and passionate about their B&B.

If you've got kids they'll love this. Talking parrots. Tame roos and wallabies. Super friendly owners. Our kids said it was the best day of the holiday.

Awesome walk and fantastic for kids with lots of hands on experiences! Was interesting to be told 'happy snaps' history and his 60 Minutes segment.

“Suprisingly good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We came across this small zoo & had little expectation. However, we stayed for 2 hours & was suprised with the range of animals that were here.
There is a big bird collection for the bird lovers.
The kangaroos know you have food and it so cool that you can feed them. Even more amazing was that the food was part of the entrance fee(thankyou!!!)
The young dingoes were so friendly as they have been there since pups.
The wombat was a highlight. How often have you been to a big zoo and the wombat is sleeping in its burrow. This cute pudgy fella came out to say hi and wandered around.
The quolls jumped on the cage to see what we were doing also.
Definitely better than i expected! Very rare you get to be up so close to the cage where the animals are. You dont get that close in the big zoos.
Definitely worth going if you into animals.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

I'm visiting internationally and this is by far one of the highlights of my trip. The zoo is small but there's a lot of cool animals and the lady was very knowledgeable and the zoo had a very personal feeling. Feeding and holding the kangaroos and wallabies was a one of a kind experience I really enjoyed.
