Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s new waterhole cafe and play area

The NSW Government and Taronga Conservation Society Australia have created a world-class tourism and conservation facility. Central features of the water play area are Natureworks’ adult hippopotami, hippo calf and elephant calf spraying water.
