I always loved watching Steve Irwin on TV. He had a tremendous energy. You see his pictures along with his family all over this fantastic zoo. There is a statue at the front of the zoo of the Irwin family. When the zoo opens up they have animals you can visit with as they are held by staff. The koala... More

Travelling around Australia and a visit to Australia Zoo was on our must do list. we were not disappointed. We arrived at the zoo early which we recommend you do as it does get very busy. We saw the crocs live and birds of prey live shows which were fantastic. We did eat here and weren't overly impressed so if... More

The zoo has had some sniffy reviews, mainly criticising the whole Steve and Bindy Irwin cult, however I was surprised at just how pleasant the whole experience was. Informative helpful and willing keepers and staff, and wonderful animals. Yes I know it's a bit fake, but it's done so well you can forgive it. Plenty of opportunity to cuddle or... More

i had a great time here and some areas of the zoo are fantastic but some bits need some work. the koalas were my highlight and we spent a lot of time watching them. However I ended up feeling rather sorry for the crocodiles who do seem to have rather small areas but maybe this is normal for them. The... More

Our family spent the day at Australia Zoo on our recent holiday to the Sunshine Coast. Having seen many crocodile attractions at Darwin and Northern Queensland and been to a host of zoo's all over the place, we were not sure how much we'd get out of this experience. However, we did enjoy our day there and surprisingly, the tortoise... More

You should go early at 9 am when the Zoo is opening. Don't miss the big show and the Tiger Show. Also visit the African part of the Zoo. When you are tired, the free shuttle is fantastic.

Visited this 100-acre zoo during May which is situated on the Sunshine Coast and has been very well landscaped with different areas for different continents for the animals. It has wildlife shows, photo opportunities with animals and roving wildlife keepers touring the site with animals. The animal enclosures are maintained to a high standard and animals look well cared for... More

Had a wonderful day with friends from Norfolk Island at the zoo. Everything was so clean, animals look so happy & healthy. A must for everyone to see. There was so much to see & do. The kids were busy all day. We spent seven hours there. Keep up the good work.

We spent the day here in the middle of the Queensland summer, stifling hot was an understatement! The park is exceptionally well set up and a lot of thought has been put into it. The animals are very well cared for and the shows are amazing with a lot of crowd interaction. My favourite part was feeding the kangaroos that... More
