Crikey! If you’ve not been to Australia Zoo or it’s been a few years since your last visit, I recommend you take some time out and spend the day enjoying the fabulous animal exhibits.
Some of the Aussies
The last time I visited this zoo would have been 10+ years ago and boy has it changed. Wear good walking shoes, take a sun-hat, sun-screen, mozzie repellent and of course your camera. You’re given a map on entry and you better use it or risk getting lost. Take note of the feeding and interactive event times and plan your walk around the zoo accordingly. Expect to be there from opening (9am) to closing time (5pm)
You can take your own food in with you but the property is huge and I would suggest minimising the amount of gear you lug around. There are plenty of food and drink stops and restrooms throughout the park.
What I loved most about the park is the natural habitat areas and minimal cages. I find I get quite stressed seeing caged animals and was delighted to find most of the animals in natural habitat areas.
The park is world-class and the TV ads don’t do it justice. This zoo gets a big thumbs up from me. Visit the Australia Zoo website here.
