Penguins, pelicans and other birds, the great Australian crocodile that is adapted to live in sweet and salty waters, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies (marsupial that looks kangaroo but much smaller), various snakes, equidna (a mammal similar to the porcupine), flying fox (from the bat family).

Best option within the city limits, to see the whole range of Australian animals, birds, reptiles. Well maintained, fully trees cover and shaded, animals are well kept and cared. Can finish a visit in about 2 hrs. Children will love the encounter with kangaroos and koalas. You can actually touch them and have photos with them. Wide range of Australian fauna on display.
