EXPERIENCE THE WILDLIFE AT NEWQUAY ZOOSILVER Visitor Attraction of the Year 2007-2008 (South West Tourism Excellence Awards)Award winning Newquay Zoo (a registered charity) is set amongst exotic lakeside gardens with animals from all around the world ranging from the smallest monkey the Pygmy Marmoset to magnificent African Lions.

While at the zoo you can enjoy fascinating 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 Red Pandas and glimpse the strange and endangered lemurs and fossa.

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.

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 is available on most days during the summer. There is plenty of seating and picnic areas plus taste the delights of the Café Lemur restaurant, Tippy’s snack bar and a summer barbecue by the lake.
