Tapir Encounter

This is the closest you can get to a Tapir anywhere in Australia.  Go with the keepers into Tiquie’s enclosure where you can give her a scratch on her favourite spots, feel her strange skin and give her a cuddle for a great photo opportunity.  A rare opportunity to learn about and be so close to this fascinating animal.
