Experience the wildlife at Newquay Zoo, one of the best Newquay attractions. Enjoy talks and feeding times throughout the day. See the very popular otter family playing in the stream in the Oriental Garden, which is also home to some rare and endangered animals like Owston's Civets from Vietnam and stunning Hornbills from Asia. Look out for meerkats on sentry duty, penguins playing in their pool, the beautiful colouring of the Red Pandas and glimpse the strange and endangered lemurs and fossa.

There are animal encounters every day where you can meet some of keepers and the animals they care for, like Alvin the skunk, Oscar the Great horned Owl, and Martes the Coati.

The Tropical House is another stunning exhibit with an open jungle rainforest enclosure where you can spend time spotting a variety of exotic animals including sloths, toucans, monkeys, toads and much more. See displays on the zoo's overseas conservation work and visit the minibeasts room with snakes, skinks, dart frogs and other creepy crawlies.

Newquay Zoo is fun for all age groups with plenty of delights for children including the tarzan trail, a children's play area, the village farm and the dragon maze. Face painting and a 'Wild Times' creative club are also available on most days during the summer. There is plenty of seating and picnic areas plus the Capybara restaurant, Tippy's snack bar and a tasty summer barbecue by the lake.

Events are run throughout the year and group bookings are always welcome. For information on forthcoming events visit our website or check out tickity-boo's event diary. Please see the official Newquay Zoo website for admission charges.
