We visited on 18th June. Sadly they were having electrical issues and the cafés hot food and drinks were not working, but they had advised of this on their website, so we were for warned...In any case take a picnic with you as the food and drink prices are predictably expensive. There are plenty of places to eat your picnic. There was also no water to wash hands in one of the gents toilets, I did report it and the staff member was receptive and thanked me for reporting it. Hope they fixed it!
The birds are clearly cared for but some of the places they live in are in a poor state of repair and appear grubby. The place is quite dated and needs a bit of a lift.
There is a very old children's climbing frame with a couple of swings which are clearly passed their best and have relatively sharp metal shows through the split rubber casing, this needs urgent attention before a little fingers get hurt. Although the gardens are well maintained. The gift shop appears quite chaotic, with some very random gifts for sale. It's not a shop you can browse easily.
The flying display was excellent and the member of staff presenting the show knew her stuff . It was nice to see a pair kookaburra, a Caracara and a parrot as part of the display rather than the usual birds of prey.
On the same site is a petting farm which is ok.
There is a small aquarium as well which has a good selection of different fish, a couple crocs and a Sexy Shrimp...yes that's true!!
Overall it's a good day out, and don't forget your picnic. I would have marked it excellent if it hadn't been let down with the points above.
