This small zoo is great for getting really close to the animals, like six feet from the lions! You can feed the llamas, goats, and axis deer. They have a really nice selection and I found it interesting to read the stories about the animals...More

We went with family, including 5 year old granddaughter who loved the zoo. Her parents liked the idea of it being a rescue zoo. It is the perfect size for a small child and grandparents. We went in March so animals were out. My granddaughter...More

We were looking for something to do with a toddler for the afternoon, so decided to try this zoo. It's in a shady, natural environment, and the entry fee was reasonable. Even better, the animals are all rescued or are surrendered exotic pets. This means...More

nice setup, animals well cared for, love the chickens and peacocks wandering around, bears were a hoot playing in the water and "fighting" the sprinkler spray

I was glad to find a zoo with rescue animals. Fun and affordable! I would go back for sure. Also very kids friendly.

I love Austin Zoo! It's a better-than-expectations rescue shelter like no other. It's range of animals, it's experience in interactions with staff and animals, and it's size (being smaller rather than bigger) are all it's positives. After my first visit, I promptly bought a membership....More

Yes, this is a small zoo. Don't disregard it for that. It's a rescue facility, which makes it even more appealing in my eyes. You can buy feed for the goats, sheep, llama, and deer, which I loved. I visit goats every chance I get...More
