We had a great time at Nowra zoo. The talks were amazing with very in depth information. Lots to see and plenty to do. We only had a few hours to spare but could have easily spend 4-5hrs here.

We took our children and grandkids to visit the Zoo and we were not disappointed. Casual walk, up close with the animals, interactive activities. Price competitive but not as commercial as the major Zoos which is also a positive. Staff were extremely friendly. Well done!

We enjoyed the regular animal feeding shows and the barnyard experience. For a long weekend it was not crowded. The cafe was cheap and served good food. I recommend gumboots if it has been raining.

We did the Ultimate Keeper Experience - so we didn't pay the standard entry fee. The Keeper Experience is $100/person for 2 people. Food was separate - it's not a big menu but it's reasonably priced food.
