We followed our bus drivers advice and planned our time around the croc show at midday. We both wear hearing aides and we found the compere's difficult to understand. The tiger show was not mentioned in the brochure so we missed that.

It's alright but it seems like there's no flow meaning some back tracking -so areas must have been added on ad hoc. Bindi's Island is just a tree house & yet there's billboards advertising it on the highway. I think I expected more animals as it's so expensive. It is good there's kiosks & toilets & sun shelters all around... More

Good for Australian animals and worth going but a lot of zoos have more variety, worth visiting though, good for a day out

We went there just a few days ago. The staff talks are great. They are very genuine and knowledgeable. You get up close with many animals. I was not keen to see animals that are not native to Australia though. But they are expanding and adding new things. I guess trying to survive and get repeat visitors. Again, none of... More

For the expensive entry fee I was surprised by the sparseness of the zoo in terms of attractions and animals. Positives: The kanagroo and koala sections which you can work among freely have take numerous photos with the animals. Negatives: Bindi's Island had been advertised everywhere you go but it was a man made artifical tree house with very few... More

We arrived about 09:45 and were fortunate to see the feeding of the giant tortoise, followed by the otters, on to the main 12:00 show and then at 14:00 the Tigers. Every member of staff was enthusiastic and obviously cared a great deal about the animals. We had a wonderful day and even the torrential rain did not entirely stop... More

My mother and I travelled the east coast and visited 8 zoos (as my Mother is a huge animal fan). Australia Zoo was the largest and by far had the most species of animals. It was an excellent day out, arriving at opening and only leaving when the zoo closed. The staff were friendly and the interactive opportunities were excellent!

I came here because a guy in my hostel in Noosa said it's the best Zoo he's ever been. I had an awesome day. I would love to go again. The show at Midday was awesome. And the tiger show at 2pm as well. They offer so much and look after their animals, costumers and properties. The hospital is worth... More

A definite must see. Steve and his crew did a great job with this zoo. The animals are treated with love. The keepers treat the animals with great care, not like they are circus creatures. Great place to interact with SOME of the animals.

I thought the entrance fee was a bit pricey, but I was so wrong, this place is truly awesome! Crocodile show was entertaining and informative, I couldn't believe the Irwin family were actually there taking part, what a great family. My dream was to see Koala, omg you could walk through the enclosure and stroke then! You could also get... More
