Meet the hand-raised animals and wander the Australian animal walk-through to come face to face with wallabies and kangaroos. Don’t forget your camera as there are great photo opportunities with koalas, kangaroos and other Australian native animals.

After your tour, spend the rest of the day checking out the great activities on offer at the zoo. There are expert talks through out the day, the not to be missed free flying bird show and the ever popular seal show.

Too many people, exhibits closed or animals not in enclosures. Food and drink lines excessively long and not at all fun for the kids. 4 sandwiches and 4 coffees was $88. Sky lifts only going one way. With COVID still a worry, there was no way of practicing social distancing no matter how hard you tried. Overall a very disappointing day. Spend your money elsewhere if you want an enjoyable and stress free day.

Wonderful tour through the zoo. Learning about the animals of Australia and walking among some of them was a treat. We were able to see up close the Koala bears and feeding the wallaby. Informative and fun.

This was an incredible tour, seeing much more of the zoo than we could have on our own! We had 2 volunteer guides for the two of us. They were both extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional!
