Park Map & Facilities
Symbio is set on 16 acres of picturesque gardens and natural bushland, and as such we have a variety of beautiful green spaces where you can enjoy a picnic with your friends and family.
You can choose to bring along your picnic blanket or have lunch under one of our three covered areas with fixed tables and chairs.
There are no barbeque facilities on-site, but guests are more than welcome to bring small portable gas barbeques (max 9kg gas bottle) with them to utilise for their picnics. Please note that one of our covered areas – the Picnic Shelter – is available for group hire at a cost, and as such may be reserved for the day.
Visitors are also more than welcome to bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks. Alcohol is not permitted within Zoo grounds outside of a catered for event.
Our kiosk is open daily and offers a wide range of hot and cold café and take-away style foods. Some of the delicious items available are wraps, Turkish rolls, burgers, fresh salads, sandwiches, hot pastries, hot chips, hot dogs, ice-creams, soft drinks and sweets.
The Splash Park is open all year-round and is the perfect place for the kids cool off under the dump buckets, water squirters, fountains and many more water based additions. Completely safe and all inclusive, all ages are able to have fun and play in this space.
Set amongst the tree in the South-West corner of Symbio is the brand new dry playground. With two flying foxes, heaps of swings, climbing walls, fortness, slides and in ground trampolines its the perfect place for the the children to burn off some steam whilst the parents relax.
Symbio has allocated disabled parking at the closest available spots near park entry. This is to make entry and exit more accessible.
Accessibility is improved by:
– Wide entry gates
– layout of our property being on a very gentle slope
– majority of the pathways being paved
– brand new all-accessible amenities block
– all new enclosures being designed with accessibility in mind
* Please Note – due to some pathways around our park being gravel, we do suggest having an able-bodied adult accompany visitors who need a wheelchair to ensure these pathways or the grassed lawns of the Kangaroo Walk-Through area does not inhibit their experience.
After you have experienced everything that Symbio has to offer, you can finish off your day in our gift shop which has everything from toys, backpacks, books and clothing, through to an extensive range of Symbio and Australian souvenir items.
You can also upgrade your day’s entry ticket to become a Season Pass Member at exit from as little as $30. This will give you 12 months of unlimited visits to Symbio to experience the fun over and over again.
