    The zoo was lovely. Small, but informative, with Billy the Wombat being taken for walks around the pens. The staff were friendly and very helpful, with very well maintained viewing areas. Highly recommend a great day out 🙂🙂.

    Pretty great! I know the cost to enter goes for a great cause but it becomes an expensive trip for a family to see animals. A similar place exists in Ipswich and runs for gold coin donation. Regardless was a good trip!

    The venue was amazing, parking was easy and was very easy to find. Had a friend's birthday there and the view from the balcony overlooking the animals was just awesome. I saw so many native animals and a few I had never seen. Staff were excellent and very helpful when I ordered drinks and coffee. Will be going back for a more detailed look around the area. Will be worth the time.

    Lovely creek, landscape and lagoon. Recommended for a small walk to relax. Defo try paddle or kayaking (I fell twice into the water, we had strong winds!! Bring a change of clothes just in case). Price is fine, 25$ per person.

    Great walk around the lake, long track or short up to you. Cheap entry to the discovery centre and nice array of native animals to see. Wonderfully nice and informative staff. Kayaking and nice swimming
