It's a great place to visit, and we will be going back. But there is just one thing that you need to remember to pack - mosquito repellent. They have done their best to replicate a jungle environment, and it has worked. All they need now are a few million leeches to go with the mosquitoes. I swatted five whilst watching an orangutan strut her stuff.

Who built a zoo on a swamp?
We've just done the Perth zoo, which is somewhere that I have not been for about 25 years or more. It is no longer a series of concrete bunkers and steel bars and other animal prison-type enclosures. Rather, it is a paradise of greenery and winding paths and very nice enclosures. We only got to see about 1/3 of the zoo before the monkey wandered off to the Land of Nod, but I was quite impressed with what we saw. I wouldn't even baulk for an instant at paying $18 to get in again - particularly when parking outside is $1 an hour. Yes, that is one dollar. Eat your heart out, Sydney.
