Plenty of animals to see, can get really close to a lot of them. Some of the daytime shows are good to watch.

Decided to visit after hearing some good feedback and was a bit disappointed. The farmyard section is really good for the little ones and what we saw of the shows were interesting and informative. It is just all over the place - not well planned....More

Not a very big zoo but can easily spend half a day here. Very reasonable entrance fees to get in and very friendly zookeepers and staff. Even the volunteers are amazing. Make sure you don’t miss the crocodile feeding or the lion feeding show. Zookeepers...More

A trip to this zoo is well worth it, while not very big there is a lot to see and do. The staff are very knowledgeable and help. It was windy the day we went and a lot of dust was stirred up.

This relatively small local Zoo is just outside Nowra, and has a remarkable selection of local (and not at all local!) wildlife. Entrance costs are reasonable (by Aussie standards!), and it iasily possible to spend over half a day here, since there is a lot...More

There is wheelchair access, the paths through the zoo are crushed granite so some areas are uneven, but plenty of prams and wheelchairs do come in. There is a disability toilet

We did the Ultimate Keeper Experience - so we didn't pay the standard entry fee. The Keeper Experience is $100/person for 2 people. Food was separate - it's not a big menu but it's reasonably priced food.
