Nice zoo. Its so natural. Not big but cute and interesting. A lot of animals can walk there free around you, for example lemurs, kangaroos or many species of birds. What go for is a pavilion of butterflies at the end of the garden and big aquarium in an old building.
Really nice zoo. Very quiet and plenty of space this time of year. They were digging up a few areas to maintain the walkways but nothing was closed off. You can get quite close to a lot of the animals so you can get some good photos with your phone. There are a number of places to eat and drink which are not too pricey. The whole place is clean, tidy and we'll presented.
