Hunter Valley Zoo, Cessnock Reviews - Write a Review

  • Being a small zoo did not know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. My grandsons ran from one enclosure to the next then we did them all again at a more leisurely pace. A very clean, well laid out zoo. A surprising selection with friendly staff and hourly lectures on the different species throughout the day. The number of animals the kids had access,to feed and pat, was much appreciated by the grand kids. Good amenities and picnic tables for picnics and/or birthday parties. Definitely worth a visit if passing through this area.

  • Small and intimate zoo. Can get up close and personal with a lot of the animals. Some enclosures are hard for tiny people to see in, but this is only a few of them. The tame birds are a highlight. And the petting area is great for medium sized humans.

  • beautiful little zoo. Has some great picnic undercover areas. Tigers, camels & merkats are the best enclosures. You can feed and pat the kangaroos and the farm animals - sheep, goat etc. Would be good if there was some more animals even if it was cheap animals like horses, cows pigs etc

  • Great little zoo to spend a few hours. Lots of native animals, kangaroos and koalas etc.The big surprise was the exotic animals. Alligators, lions, cheetahs, monkeys, meerkats etc. Animals are all up close easy to view with regular keeper talks.

  • Friendliest animals I have ever met at a zoo - inquisitive and happy interacting w humans. Large diversity of animals and bird species. Hairy-nosed wombats came to the fence and let me pat them (also tried to play bite my knee - teeth like a hare!) Exceeded all expectations. Only warning might be to keep little kids from feeding the camels and herd animals (goats/deer/sheep) in the feeding enclosure which were surprisingly aggressive in seeking out food.
