Not usually a zoo fan but I really enjoyed this one. Kids enjoyed feeding some animals and the meerkat encounter, liked seeing the bison, monkeys and cheetahs - wow!

Just make sure you aren't wearing khaki, apparently he has quite a thing for anyone in khaki. And not in a good way! Take your time strolling the grounds and make sure you get some pellets to feed the wallabies! A wonderful, meandering zoo with...More

Have been coming here on and off for many years (and having visited many zoos of varying sizes in many different countries), I have to say this zoo is one of the best! Highlights of this trip included seeing the cheetahs for the first time...More

This is a fantastic zoo. Easy to walk around with lots of animals to see and feed. Just great when you walk in the gates and you just walk amongst the deer while you feed them.

This is an excellent zoo for such a small town. It really deserved an excellent rating, but I only gave it 4 because I think their entrance fees have just gotten too high for a small zoo.More

I realize it is a small country zoo not of tge likes of say Australia zoo. But I felt that the place was not maintained well enough even just the growth around exhibits. I would rather see less animals in better facilities.More

Hi Sandie Halls Gap Zoo is built around a very natural setting and we deliberately attempt to keep this natural look rather than a manicured look, this is something that is commented favorably on and appreciated by the vast majority of our visitors. This creates...More

Although a privately run zoo, the entry for this particular zoo is over priced. You can complete the zoo circuit in an hour and half and a family ticket was $90. You could pay extra to get up close and personal with the animals if...More
