“ Working with the team at Australia Zoo was one of the most amazing experiences we have had. We were treated at the gate with a warm welcome and all the staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. The cake smash was a total success, Korbyn absolutely loved it! I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants super special memories of their little ones birthday. The photos were stunning and we loved every minute of it we couldn't have asked for a better experience. "

“ I booked a cake smash at Australia Zoo for my son’s 2nd birthday. We had a fantastic time! From the pick up at the gate and quick entry, to the little buggy ride, to the actual experience with Fatty the echidna, we loved every minute. The photos were really natural and turned out even better than I had hoped for. All of the staff were really friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this for anyone with little kids - even my 3 year old loved getting involved! "
