Get up close and personal at Mogo Zoo

One of the Eurobodalla’s best-loved towns is Mogo and on the outskirts of this quaint little place lies the Mogo Zoo. Back in the 1980s, a woman and animal-lover by the name of Sally Padey, realised a life-long dream of opening a zoo there. Today, Mogo Zoo is home to hundreds of exotic and endangered animals, and is one of the best-loved zoos in the state.

Some of the zoo’s stand-out features are the incredible animal encounters on offer, designed to get people up close and personal with a whole range of animals, as well as encourage animal conservation.

Encounters range from the Primate Island Cruise — a boat trip through the home of the largest collection of primates in the country — to the opportunity to hand-feed lions or tigers, pat red pandas or play with different types of small monkeys and meerkats! There’s also the Meet the White Rhino encounter! For those who like to have a little taste of everything, there’s the Ultimate Experience — a four-hour encounter that allows you to interact with meerkats, pandas, small and squirrel monkeys and take the Primate Island Cruise.
