big island hawaii Panaewa zooHawaii Hideaways would like share an interesting and children friendly attraction on the Big Island, Hawaii.

Panaewa Rainforest Zoo and Reserve. Located at  25 Aupuni Street, Hilo, Hawaii.
Highly suitable for families who are looking for something different to the beaches of the Big Island, the Panaewa Rainforest Zoo is brimming with animal attractions, with close to 100 different types of species. This lush, tropical rain forest is home to everything from Hawaiian geese (nene), to reptiles, exotic birds, Capuchin monkeys, brown and ring-tailed lemurs, spider monkeys, and of course, the white Bengal Tiger.

Visitors will enjoy picnicking in the lush gardens, where peacocks are often to be seen strolling around. This zoo offers the perfect family day out, particularly as entrance is complete free of charge. Children will particularly enjoy getting close-up to the cuddly animals in the Saturday petting zoo.

open: daily – 9:00am to 4:00pm
