We visited Australia Zoo by bus (starting in Brisbane) which was a very easy way to get there. The animals have a lot of space which is really important to me when i visit a zoo and everything looks nice and clean. The shows are good too but you should go there before it starts cause many people want to... More

We visited the zoo today after years of wanting to go there. From hand feeding the kangaroos to cuddling a koala, we truly had a fabulous day. We also found it very humbling and emotional to hear and read all about Steve Irwin and his family and how they continue to do so much for wildlife conservation. It was a... More

We visited Australia Zoo about two weeks after going on the Australian experience at Taronga Zoo. The two zoos have very different approaches to their animals although all are well cared for. Taronga -very factual and hands off, Australia Zoo more entertaining. At the latter we had a great day, although it was incredibly hot. My partner was desperate to... More

I booked my 8yo daughter a discovery "zoo keeper for a day" experience and my 6yo son and I spent the day at the zoo why she off on her adventure. It was an extremely hot day, but we're plenty of water fountains around to keep hydrated, and lots of shady paths. It really was a great day out, the... More

Living in a world heritage national park, i must say that I am not a big fan of zoos in general, but they do serve a purpose when managed well and Australia Zoo certainly does look after its animals that they have on display. Watching the crocodile show I was shocked and appalled at the the mixed messages the business... More

Zoos aren't really my thing, I'd rather see the animal in its natural habitat, but you have to admire this place. It is a great legacy for Steve Irwin and is very well run. Definitely drive here if you are in Brisbane, we were advised to take a bus and left the car but it took hours stuck in a... More

Ok, I'm going to try and be fair here as a) I know that animal welfare has to be their top priority and b) it was an incredibly hot day. The zoo is vast. It's out of town but loads of parking. It's expensive so plan your visit around what shows etc you want to see - we missed them... More

The entrance fee for the zoo is very reasonable - in the UK it would 2 or 3 times as much for what you get to see! The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the animals in their care. The midday show in the arena is worth scheduling in to your visit. My favourite part of the zoo was... More

On a two week road trip down the coast this attraction was set in stone by my family as a must see. We were not dissapointed. Not your normal theme park or over commercialised attraction. Everything seemed natural with a wide variety of animal attractions and easy going feel. Paid a lot of money to be photographed holding a koala... More

This is a great day out. The highlight for us was the feeding of the crocs which took place with a great deal of american style showmanship, music and humour. It was good to be able to spend time walking through the various sections and the information on each were helpful. Excellent staff so I would advise that you take... More
