IKt has been so long I cannot even remember, but probably Perth Zoo about 5 years ago with my grandchildren and before that probably 20 years!

I went to Billabong Sanctuary here in North Qld,about 2 years or more ago. I adore it out there where a local man and his family actually built a billabong and natural surroundings on wasteland many years ago,and has since won many prestigious awards. The entire complex is now well recognised for the wonderful breeding and research programs it conducts for our native animals and reptiles.I have taken many visitors out there for a truly memorable day.
We took our son to Featherdale Wildlife Park a couple of weeks ago. It was exhausting but a lot of fun. He went wild!

Around 5 years ago with my granddaughter...Perth Zoo,.

Featherdale in Sydney....2012 with my Grandchildren.
We went to a zoo just last week, as we were on holiday in Jersey and they have one of the best zoos in the world there - Durrell Wildlife Park. They are the home of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and have some of the world's rarest animals there, not all of them on display. It was founded by Gerald Durrell and does essential work all round the globe helping to preserve endangered animals.

On the whole, I'm not a fan of zoos - I don't like animals being kept in cages for the entertainment of human beings - but where it is all part of a bigger picture like this one, then I happy to support it.
It's probably been 5 years or so now, if not more since I've been to the zoo. The last zoo I visited was the Calgary zoo.
Adelaide Zoo late last year. Admittedly the zoo's are getting pretty expensive. I realise that the animals cost a lot but for a family to go its close to $100 and for a day trip that really isn't affordable for a lot of families. If they lowered the price they might have a high number of people go. In saying that though my two year old loved going through the zoo and it is well set up for strollers. They also have the kiddie cars that you can push around so he thought he was driving around the zoo! The enclosures have also improved a lot over the years but I really wish they would do a bit more for the big cats and the giraffes as their enclosures really don't seem big enough or all that stimulating.
Taronga Zoo. 1968. End of Grade XII.
As got older, don't believe animals' should be 'in gaol' whatsoever!
I went to Perth zoo last year

I’ve been to the Melbourne & Sydney Zoos, in the past 5 years, but like the Melbourne Zoo a lot better tun the Sydney 1. Last time to the Sydney Zoo was 1/2 price for Seniors, which we thought was OK for $22.50 each. We’ve also been to the San Diego Zoo, & 38 years ago we took our 2 little daughters to the Honolulu Zoo. It was tiny then, & we saw everything in 15 minutes & it coat $2.50!
Some time, a while ago, we spent 3 days in Singapore, so we went to the Zoo there. luckily seniors rates start from aged 55, so it was very cheap to get in. Which was just as well, because there was hardly an animal to be seen, anywhere! Not long after we'd left Singapore to zoo was very much up dated, but we didn't get to check it out a 2nd time, when we visited early August, '17. Whenever we've been to the Sydney zoo, there's always been signs around the cages saying, "Sorry, this 1 is closed for the time being" I don't like to see that, when I've paid out a LOT of money to see...everything that SHOULD be there" I also think the poor animals should be walking around on grass, not cement. It's just so fake looking. Those poor animals. Maybe they do have a better life, away from other animals that may eat them in the wild. After all, us non vegetarians are eating animals.

Late in March we visited the Altina Wildlife Park near Darlington Point in NSW. It is a privately owned zoo that is establishing itself for breeding animals. They have a huge variety of hooved animals as well as white lions. There were while tlion cubs when we were there and one of the giraffes was expecting. They have a tour in a horse drawn carriage which follws a keeper as they feed the animals. A fantastic morning. This well kept secret is around 40 minutes from Griffith.
Thanks for letting us know about 'this' Zoo, Gayle. I've never heard of the zoo, nor have I ever been to Griffith, but my husband has said, when he buys another car we'll start going on car trips. (He's been looking online every night for another car, since June 30 '18!)

I think zoos have become out of reach financially for many families and that is sad. My husband and I went to go a couple of years ago and when we saw the price changed our mind. We could afford it but felt it was overpriced. I know that it is an expensive venture maintaining the staff, animals and grounds but I think it is a family entertainment and therefore should be financially accessible to families.
We took some overseas visitors to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary a couple of years ago. It's not really a zoo but a nice little animal park. The best wildlife park I have visited is Northwest Trek which is in Seattle. Absolutely amazing place. I prefer a wildlife park as the animals are free to roam.
