Great day out, unfortunately the zoo needs updating and revamping. Most of the animals appeared to be subdued and sad. Their living environments were also very run down. The cheap fare rides on site are overpriced and look unsafe. Overall we had a fab time but this was mainly due to the lovely weather.

Loved the animals. It was great being able to view the animals when they had gone into their shelters. A warning outside the lorikeets bird house that they liked to perch on your head would have been welcome! Only one eating place was open which was probably reasonable for a quiet but the only other one could do with smartening up. Food was fine and hot food served very quickly.

Lovely zoo, just looks a little sad - could do with some TLC. Kids loved it and the play areas.
