Awesome place. Not your typical zoo. Info plates include name of the animal, DOB, and wheter or not the animal was born on the zoo. Animals were very visable and visitors can get really close.

Awesome zoo, highly recommend!!!! They are non-profit all animals are rescued, great staff, reasonably priced. The animals are close up and active. You can feed some animals out of your hand like deer goats and lama. Wonderful zoo!!!!

They will take expired groupons at exact value! I brought in my groupon that was over a year expired and they used it for what it was! The animals all have incredible stories posted on their enclosures.

It's not a regular for-profit zoo, it's an animal sanctuary. The animals are visibly happier and healthier and you get much closer, like walking through a farm. And they have these great birds just walking around - peacocks and unique chickens.

Come early to see the animals more active.

From Our Editors

Austin Zoo originated as Good Day Ranch in 1990 featuring pony rides and goat-milking demonstrations. Over the next four years, the founders began rescuing exotic animals and evolving into a rescue center, renaming the facility under its current moniker. After becoming a safe haven for more than 300 rescued animals of more than 100 different species, the Austin Zoo began the process of becoming a nonprofit organization, which it completed in 2000. Housed in native Texas Hill Country enclosures, the animals can enjoy real grass and landscaping instead of concrete exhibits or studio apartments. African lions and Bengal tigers stretch out in the big cat habitats while colobus monkeys and a marmoset swing from tree to tree in monkey areas. In addition to wild creatures, the zoo houses domesticated animals such as a miniature donkey, potbellied pigs, and llamas.
