You'll go wild at Newquay Zoo

Get closer to over 130 species at award winning Newquay Zoo! See the penguins relaxing in their pool, visit the creepiest crawlies in the atmospheric tropical house, watch the big cats get their lunch and learn more about conservation - a perfect day out for the whole family.

Our zoo is home to an amazing array of animals, set amongst 13 acres of established sub-tropical gardens. Visit the African Savanna exhibit, home to stunning black wildebeest, nyala antelope and strikingly beautiful zebra. View these animals roaming in a mixed species herd from a viewing platform that gives you a birds-eye view.

Look out for beautiful red pandas, meerkats on sentry duty and the otters play in their stream. As well as a large variety of unusual species, the Zoo has a village farm with more familiar faces that children love.

Toad Hall is a fascinating exhibit highlighting the threats to amphibians around the world. More tropical species of birds, insects and amphibians including; pekin robins, poison dart frogs, toucans and skinks can be seen in the atmospheric tropical house which features an open rainforest exhibit, letting you experience life on the rainforest floor and in the canopy.

Watch the big cats devour lunch, visit the creepiest crawlies in the atmospheric tropical house and learn more about conservation - Newquay Zoo is home to some critically endangered species including the beautiful Red Pandas, Owston’s Civets and Black Wildebeest.

Keeper talks and animal feeds happen throughout the day but if you want to get even closer, our animal experiences give you the chance to meet and feed our cheeky Lemurs or friendly Penguins. If that isn’t enough, we have activity trails, face painting, a children’s play area and Dragon maze to keep people of all abilities and ages occupied.

You will need to keep your energy up too, so why not grab a snack from Lemur Café or Tippy’s Snack Bar.

Just a short walk from Newquay town centre, Newquay Zoo is one of Cornwall’s most exciting visitor attractions. Come and see us for a wild time - A really great day out for the kids and the whole family!
