    Has anyone been to this zoo.

    I went to a wedding in Cessnock on Friday and saw a sign to this zoo. I went in to see what they had, as it was late in the afternoon. Unfortunately the zoo had a sign saying it shut at 4:00 which it was at the time, and I never had another chance to go again.

    It looked small and I thought I would have had time to have a quick look if it stayed open to 5:00.

    I believe they had a macaque birth late last year/early this year.

    Has anyone been here recently to give us a review? or photos?? I notice from their news letters, they have new spider monkeys (where do they come from - they dont look like Cairns Safari's) and they've had a few breeding successes recently too...

    I have friends in Cessnock and have seen pics on their FB - looks like a really neat little zoo.
