Hunter Valley Zoo, Cessnock Reviews

  • An amazing place. Animals so well looked after and a very pleasant place to spend the day. Take a packed lunch ( no cafe) and enjoy. Staff were great too, happy to tell us about the animals. And when those lions roar ... Awesome ☺☺

  • Haven't been here since the late 90's/early 2000! But the last time we were here, I never laughed so hard in my life! 😂😂 Reason: DON'T STAND IN FRONT OF A CHIMPANZEE ENCLOSURE AND EAT A BANANA! My father-in-law did just that whilst we stopped to look at them! Next thing, a chimpanzee sneakily comes up, grabs the banana he was eating and runs off with it!😂😂 We were in hysterics after that! Then there was Kangaroo ex decided she'd be the one to feed them the bread (her being tiny....4ft nothing tiny).....and they all start coming up to her wanting the bread.....4ft against do the math......6ft wins!😂😂 They started surrounding her, she freaks out, throws the bread and runs for her life! 😂😂 We were in hysterics after that as well! 😂😂 But yeah, coming here was great and we all enjoyed ourselves! It was a great day out! Definitely have to come back for another visit!

  • Absolutely awesome some experience I had here. Some Zoos can be a saddening experience, but this place definitely wasn't. The staff genuinely care a great deal about the animals, and this is reflected in his happy and healthy they are. Make sure you spend the extra on the Meerkat experience, it was brilliant. You get to sit on the ground and hand feed them, and have them running and climbing all over you. Definitely a place you must visit, and somewhere I'll be coming back to often. Have BBQ areas dotted throughout the place too, would be an awesome place for a party.

  • Great medium sized zoo. Informative talks every half hour. Welcomes guests with food and offers free use of BBQs. Great day out

  • Super kid friendly. Staff is really helpful and kind, too. A good variety of exhibits and a well stocked gift shop.
