In honesty I am not great with Zoo's and a big believer in the animals should run free! :)

Although I would say their aquarium is very good and you can walk through the bird and nocturnal animal houses.

The big cats looked like they could do with some more space, but in general the animals look happy and well looked after. The Zoo is located on tram line 9 approx 15 mins from the central station.
