The gold rush town of Mogo in Eurobodalla is famous for its world-class zoo and community of artists. Sadly, Mogo was severely impacted by the bushfires of December 2019, and a number of buildings and attractions were destroyed. However, we are happy to announce that Mogo Wildlife Park has now reopened and is ready to welcome visitors.
Mogo Wildlife Park
Mogo Wildlife Park is home to more than 250 animals, including many rare and exotic species, like Rothschild’s giraffe, Sumatran tigers, snow leopards, southern white rhinos and western lowland gorillas. It’s one of only two places in Australia where you can see white lions and is home to the country’s largest collection of primates.
There are keeper talks and feeding demonstrations on every day, as well as thrilling animal encounters. Guests can get up close to tiger cubs, feed a lion, pat a rhino, sit with the red pandas and play with the meerkats. Then take a cruise to the Primate Islands where you can hand feed cotton top tamarins and ring-tailed lemurs.
Eat and drink
Sit down for breakfast or lunch in the leafy courtyard of Grumpy & Sweetheart’s Cafe. Mogo Pies serves up housemade pies, sandwiches, bagels, cakes and more – don’t miss the indulgent vanilla slice. Sweet tooths will want to pay a visit to Mogo Fudge & Ice Cream and Lots of Lollies.
Getting there and where to stay
Mogo is a four-hour drive from Sydney and just over two hours from Canberra. You can also fly to Moruya Airport and hire a car for the short drive north. There are plenty of places to stay in the surrounding Eurobodalla region including hotels, resorts, houses and holiday parks.
