You can quite easily call Steve Irwins wildlife park just that, and not a zoo..the animals are not caged or exhibited as most zoo's do with their animals, here, the wide open spaces allows the animals to roam free and enjoy nature, just the way it was planned from the start. Those futuristic plans of years ago have continued to... More

I spent the whole day at Australia Zoo, from 9am when it opened until 5pm when it closed. It was amazing! I have been to a lot of zoos and not that keen on looking at animals in little cages/exhibits, well this one is the opposite! Huge areas for the animals to roam, heaps of interaction with keepers giving presentations... More

I took my friends (2 adults, 1 child) who were visiting from Tasmania there and they loved it! I'm a local and have been here plenty of times before but I can never say no to going! I always learn something new and the shows constantly change and nothing is ever the same! Great show (Charlie the Croc was being... More

Was a bit sceptical this was a ripoff - $172 for a family of 4. However I was plesently surprised. It's an amazing zoo with great enclosures and well shaded layout. Plenty of well placed rest areas. We knocked it over in 4 hours including the show with 2 7 year olds but if you read every board and watched... More

What a fun day despite the rain. So much to do - easily a whole day activity. The crocodile show and bird show was great, we later got to hold a koala and python and you can go one step further and book 'an experience' with the animals.

Totally blown away by the size and the quality of the exhibits. After spending the previous day at one of the other fun parks our feet could not handle another day of walking so we splashed out and hired a caddie for 4 hours at $300. I highly recommend doing this to get the most out of your visit. We... More

Australia zoo is an excellent way to spend all or part of the day, it is well set up for everyone with wide paths and easy access to all facilities. I was impressed with the size and quality of the enclosures, the friendliness of the staff and the regular shows.
