Imagine if when you visited a zoo you could feed a lion, pat a snake and view Tasmanian devils during the Tassie devil lunchtime. This is all part and parcel of a trip to Zoodoo Zoo, which is well known for the unique hands-on opportunities it gives its visitors.
As well as an interesting range of exotic animals such as meerkats, monkeys and reptiles, there are also walk-through areas in the farmyard and Australian Native Park. Both of these spaces allow people to stroll among the animals and feed them along the way. The Native Park houses a variety of fascinating Australian species, including wombats, Tasmanian devils, quolls, koalas and many more.
Another highlight is the safari bus tours, which operate all day. These fun and informative tours transport visitors into the paddocks to feed the larger animals, such as zebras, camels and ostriches.
The newest attraction at Zoodoo Zoo is the beautiful walk-through bird aviary. Complete with friendly birds and a cascading waterfall, this expansive area is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the tranquil surrounds.
Visitors can also adopt an animal or book an animal encounter session.
