    Was lovely and quiet, a few exhibits closed for upgrade but still quite a few different animals to see. The bird show was great and our son loved the nocturnal animals. We didn't pay to go in, due to the work they are doing, however they do ask for a $5 donation. We were very happy to give it! Definitely recommend a visit 😊

    Great place for small kids, is being updated in some areas but still is pretty good. Short strolls and great Australian fauna; not the usual animals; are on display. Recommended!!

    If you like being depressed this is the place for you. The animal enclosures are disturbingly small and some even appeared to be adorned with plastic plants. You’re better off going to your local park and looking at the ibis there instead.

    Very nice zoo, great value ($60 for family of 4), ideal for family's with small kids as it's not huge but big enough to get around in a few hours + shows. Nocturnal enclosure a real highlight. Definitely worth a visit.

    Always good and book online before you go there, huge car park & enough space for your motor home or caravan. Walk beyond the Wildlife Park along the creek, an iconic Gold Coast walk, even through to Burleigh Heads. There will be a new cafe soon.
