Hunter Valley Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • I went with a 13, 2 and 1 year old. We all had such a lovely time! I wasn't sure what to expect. The zoo is a good size for young children. Allowing them to explore and interact with the animals. Having so much interaction and being able to feed animals was definitely a highlight. Plenty of areas to sit down and eat a packed lunch, they also have BBQ'S.

  • Great zoo. Really good atmosphere and friendly staff. Good range of animals but is still a smaller zoo, easy to get around and not too much for kids. Lots of hands on time with farmyard animals, kangaroos and some camels among others. Animal experiences are really fun and worth the money if you can (my wife and I did the marmoset encounter). Very worthwhile trip for all ages.

  • Small Zoo. Nice and clean. Lots of opportunities for interaction with animals. So kids love the place. It's a place where you can see everything in 2 hours unless you want to attend the talks. Lion and tiger talks that we attended were nice. If you plan to spend more time, take food and snacks with you.

  • Great place to bring the elderly and young people to visit the farm animals lions, kangaroos,koalas,etc. Plenty of BBQ areas undercover. Gas BBQ hotplates all very clean. The zoo keepers are very educated about their animals. Animal talks and discussions are available too. Highly recommended.

  • I don't want to give this a 5 star review as it might lead to more people going there and making I overcrowded! Excellent day out for family, plenty of picnic space and not many crowds, staff are very friendly and carry around different animals for you to pay throughout the day. Good talks and excellent views/interaction with all of the animals. Highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already.
