Visited with family, laid out ok safari ride was interesting but very few animals to see and the catering for a family not variety for children $19.50 for a hamburger, save your money and just go to the Melbourne Zoo.

Originally I didn't want to do the off-road safari as it's quite expensive at $50pp however my partner convinced me. I am so glad he did, this was definitely the highlight of the zoo and the safari guide Adrian was very knowledgeable, funny and interesting....More
