What a great place, lots to see, lovely for kids and adults alike. Loved the croc feeding and they showed how they scrub the enclosure and remove debris whilst the other keeper is keeping an eye on it. The otters and the farm animals were super cute. We went to tarantula talk and got to see it up close. The butterflies were beautiful. Lovely handmade cakes in cafe and the staff were great.

2nd visit within 3 Yeats and safe to say, our last. Looking very run down and tired. I know many people have raised the issue of animal welfare in this place, especially with the alligators & crocs. I don’t believe they have the best captivity life at all. My kids are 5 & nearly 3 and struggled to keep them occupied for 2 hours... pretty expensive at $72. They loved the park area and the ice cream at the end. Sorry but this place needs a major change.

What an amazing complex. Something for everyone. Farm animals, Avery, Play ground, Alligators, Train ride, Aquarium, Butterflies, Otters, Roaring articulated Dinosaurs, Mythic Creatures, Kiwi, Spiders, Weta's and Eels, There is also an aerial walk which is named Rocket ropes plus a cafe. We spent 2 hours there and could have spent 2 more had we had children with us.

We visited during Covid level 2, so numbers were restricted and prebooking was advised. We prebooked and travelled there by bus on our way to the airport. We spend a few hours looking at the animals and attractions. The park is well designed and very user friendly. The butterfly house is lovely and the butterfly are gorgeous. The dinosaurs dotted around the park are very exciting to see and when you see the crocodiles and Aligators you briefly wonder if they are real. A great few hours entertainment near the airport.

Haven't been for a few years and good to see some additions and upgrades. Butterflies were very active which was great! Overall, an excellent family attraction. We went during Covid Alert Level 2 - their system for online ticket pickup was poor and the cafe was a complete disaster area (as well as being horrifically expensive) which detracted from the day somewhat. They need to sort this out for future and be more vigilant with the number of people they allow in.
