  • Zoo was good - I do think Australia zoo is better. Pride lands safari I’m not sure was worth it - Giraffe feeding was good. Food was good and reasonably priced - new water play area opening next year ...  more »

  • We booked a giraffe experience and were able to feed them. The giraffe keeper was great. The whole experience was fantastic. You can drive around and stop at the animals you want to see in their expansive enclosures. Overall the park is very well layed out and the staff are very friendly. A great asset to Dubbo.
  • Awesome. Our mistake was not giving ourselves enough time even though we spent 6 hours there. To see everything and attend all talks, allow 2 days (your entry ticket is for 2 days anyway), bring a picnic lunch and drive your own car around. The entrance ticket is so cheap, especially compared to Australia Zoo. Love this place!!
