“Halls Gap Zoo AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

WOW what a fantastic zoo. Great for the whole family. Really loved the easy to follow track around the zoo and especially having the animals at hand to pat . Highly recommend for a great day. I also fed the meerkats and that is a very enriching experience. Thankyou Halls Gap Zoo .

“Best Zoo I've seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Went to this zoo on Sunday. .....AMAZING! Best Zoo I've ever been too. My friend and I decided to do the dingo encounter and it was awesome. Can't wait to see the photos. I loved that the deer roam around can't wait to go back! Awesome customer service also. The New Zealand girl who took us in with the Dingos was super nice also. :-)

“Lots of Australian animals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Families must visit spot when in Halls Gap. I'm not an animal person but enjoyed it.

Don't come here with an empty stomach. Not many options apart from a couple (literally) of sausage rolls and pies.

Great news Grace :) As numbers through the gate are still increasing it is making it worthwhile in extending the range of food available to our visitors so we have started to organise outsourcing to a local restaurant and plan to have it up and running in time for the September school holidays (hopefully with no delays caused by red tape). It will then be in operation each weekend, school holidays and public holidays
