Not worth it. The wombat enclosure had 2 wombats. One was trying to scratch and bite its way thru the glass screen, the other pacing back and forth two metres against the fence like a madman. Obviously not happy been stuck in such an enclosure. This is just wrong. Lock the keeper up like that and see how they like it. Sad, sad.

The aviary is really good, it's an alright size with lots of birds. Other enclosures aren't as good. Good place to go if you want to see birds, emus, kangaroos and koalas. Note, the kangaroo and emu enclosures are easy to miss as they're seperate and not well signed. Go to the big pond with turtles, and walk 50M up the track into the bush

The animals looked really sad and depressed, very small enclosures.
