We went for a day trip to Mogo Zoo yesterday, it's just a 10 minute drive from Batemans Bay and we had the time of our lives! I haven't been to a zoo since I was 5 years old (how sad is that!) and I must say I suddenly felt like a child again as I wandered around looking at all the amazing animals and listening to the keepers giving their very informative and interesting talks.
There are some excellent options for meals at Mogo Zoo. You can enjoy lunch just inside the main entrance foyer at the Jungle Drum Cafe (we had the chilli chicken wrap-Yum!) or you can use the bbq area which you'll find just outside the main entrance building as you enter the zoo area. You can also bring your own picnic lunch and sit among the gardens at the picnic tables provided while you watch the animals.
The Mogo Zoo shop is filled with really good quality merchandise of all kinds including childrens books, puzzles, stuffed toys, caps and beanies. For the big kids in the family there are some t-shirts, caps, vests, fridge magnets, books and other useful mementos of your visit to the zoo. If you are in the Batemans Bay area and are looking for things to do, I'm sure you'll enjoy Mogo Zoo!
