In early May, Your Coastal Life team took a trip to visit the Mogo Zoo to experience the South Coast’s premier wildlife attraction and it was good to see the venue and all its animals going strong in the wake of a flood of adversity.
The rainy weather held off enough for us to enjoy the trip and on the way there, the team stopped in Braidwood for morning tea. The trip was well worth it and it was a joy to be greeted by thee friendly Mogo Zoo staff and the attentive Meerkats by the entrance.
In spite of fires, floods and COVID, the zoo remains one of the finest in the country with a wide variety of animal species, all of which enjoy spacious naturalistic enclosures. The big cats were a favourite with the team and it was great to see the majestic white lions, tigers and of course the elusive snow leopard. While we missed the arrival of the Zoos newest inhabitant, a baby Silvery Gibbon, we enjoyed a stroll around the Primate Islands and their variety of gibbons, lemurs, capuchins and more.
Before leaving, the team went through the gift shop to pick up some souvenirs for family and friends. In all, it was a great day out for the team and definitely one we look forward to doing again one day.
The Mogo Zoo is located on Tomakin Road just outside of Mogo and only a 10-minute drive from Batemans Bay. On top of their world class variety of animals, the Zoo offers animal encounters and even camping experiences.
