Hunter Valley Zoo
The Hunter Valley Zoo is an enjoyable way to spend a day while visiting the Hunter Valley region. The town of Cessnock is a short drive from the zoo and a good base if you’re planning to explore the area. Encounter farmyard animals up close as well as kangaroos, wallabies and koalas. Daily shows on offer are entertaining and a great way to learn about native wildlife with talks about wombats, cheetahs, capuchin monkeys, maned wolves, spider monkeys and more.
Enjoy a picnic for lunch with free barbecue facilities available or book an animal encounter to get up close with the incredible wildlife. The array of animals to discover provides an incredible learning experience about Tasmanian devils, dingoes, meerkats, ring-tailed lemurs and more. The zoo also has a gift shop on site so you can take home a special memento to hold on to forever.
