Hunter Valley Zoo, Cessnock Reviews
💗😀 loved the whole day here! 🦉The program of animal talks really made the visit valuable 🐨🦁🐆 We had a group of teens with us and they didn't want to leave!🦇 Being able to feed the kangaroos, goats🐐, sheep🐑 & deer were a highlight but my favourite was feeding the🐪 camel! 😆 It was the most amazing feeling! Dancing with the Cockatoo, cuddling the wombat & tentatively touching the python🐍 were also amazing! I'm ashamed to say that it has been 8 years since our last visit, but this zoo has grown and become something wonderful 🌿🐊🐒🐂 You can purchase drinks and sandwiches🥪🥤 at the zoo but I recommend packing a picnic. There's plenty of seating or grasses spots to enjoy lunch. Don't forget the sunscreen & drinking water.
Wonderful Zoo! Well kept & tidy. All the staff were so welcoming & friendly!😃 And really good variation of animals 🦁🐆🐏🦌🐦🐔🐤🐥🐐🦃🐾🦎🦆🐊🐢🦅 BBQ available, however there are no cafeterias, food outlets or vending machines so you will need to bring food should you wish. I had a really lovely time here 😃😁😀😄🤗 Thank you Hunter Zoo 😘
Great zoo, some really unique animals I haven't seen before. There is great visibility of the animals and you can get pretty close to them. Food on sale is a bit limited, and there are BBQs where you can cook your own but most of the seating where reserved for people's parties. Regular talks and feedings are fun and informative. Plenty of free parking, may be a bit of a walk as a lot of it is on the street.
At first driving up I thought I was going to turn around but behind the fence is a great little zoo. Don't judge a book it's cover! All the animals were out and vocal and they have a great range of animals to see.
Surprising range of animals and the enclosures were clean and laid out really well! Staff were helpful when we had questions - which is nice for a change, and the animals weren’t contained behind 3 meter fences. Would definitely recommend this zoo to anyone visiting Hunter Valley!
