Such a forgotten treasure in Sydney.
Go during school time and enjoy a relaxing walk through this beautiful jungle of gorgeous creatures and extraordinary wildlife. Head down around 10am and there are shows every half hour from dingo’s to koalas. Stop for lunch and then head to the farmyard and reptile show before feeding some goats and heading home. Amy is a wonderful knowledgeable presenter who is so patient with the endless questions from kids. Got bitten by some bugs so wear appropriate clothing but otherwise a great time.

Small but very friendly local zoo. Great opportunity to touch farm animals. Kangaroo patting zone and goats as well can be touched and always hungry.
The park needs big refresh. But owners keep all clean.
Nice cafeteria with coffee and good options for lunch.
My kids like it and I we will come back in a couple of years.

Great place to take the kids and pat some animals like long hair guinea pigs and rabbits along with small reptiles like bearded dragons and blue tongue lizards. Feed lambs, kangaroos, wallabies and even goats. Brendan was fantastic and very knowledge. He even helped us get one rogue goat get back into the main pen.
