Tell us about your best zoo experience - something you saw or did that you will never forget. For us, I think one of the best would have to be the Zoofari Lodge at Western Plains Zoo near Dubbo. You stay in a safari tent (with heated terazzo tile floors !) at the back of the zoo, so close to the lions you can even hear them snore at night (well, it seems that way). You get several behind-the-scenes tours and meals provided, as well as two days of access to the zoo. It was a lot of fun - and the tours were excellent.
