This is a small family owned zoo. It is a great way to see the local animals up close - Crocodile, Kangaroo, Wallaby, Dingo, Emus, tons of birds and more. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable.

This place is magical as it is so relaxed - you can get close encounters with different animals and see an amazing diversity including some endemic species that only exist in the Cape Tribulation area!
