We decided to do a VIP tour which although cost $300 on that day was well worth it. For 5 hours we were driven around and told things that we would never have known, our guide Tegan was knowledgeable, friendly and easy to be with. We had VIP seating at the crocodile show. Although we had poor weather we were... More

Drove from Sunshine Coast, and it was an easy drive. I pre booked the cheetah photo experience and loved it. I only wish it didn't clash with the main show. I missed about 10min of the main show. Loved all the animal interactions and you can take photos with koalas, bird, snakes, lizards at the front of the zoo. Something... More

Came here with friends who had a young child. Weather was a rainy and some of the shows got cancelled. still got a chance to jump on a Camel though which was a real treat. My mate's child really enjoyed watching the animals in Africa section and was absolutely hypnotised by the bird show. Well worth the trip.

Had a ball, reading all the different facts about the animals and supporting the great work done by everyone at the zoo. Sad it was a wet day today, would of been fantastic otherwise. Great to see the otters and Dingoes so happy.

I visited the place a couple of years ago. it was during my first trip to Australia. what a great place. the animals have al the space to walk freely. and you have the opportunity to walk, touch and even feed animals.

Biggest disappointment in Australia, having visited extensively (6 months in one year). Don't waste your time and especially your money. This place is over the top, just like the Crocodile Hunter was. His captive crocs would be better off in the wild preserving the natural habitat. The other Australian fauna can be seen in the wild or in other better... More

a great variety of the Australia animals, no where to be seen than on this continent. The animals are given as much space as possible it seems, not over crowded. Nice seeing that koalas are rotated as for how long visitors are able to get up close to touch( only as directed by a trainer) and get a photo with.The... More
