Our family, including two primary-school aged girls, were all really looking forward to visiting Australia Zoo for the first time in the Easter school holidays, especially because Terri, Bindi and Robert were going to be there. We all love zoos. I was surprised at the entrance cost ($59 per adult, $172 for a family) which is far in excess of... More

Australia zoo is a family fav, have been visiting yearly sence the 80's, it is expensive now, but in saying that I hope the excess expense goes on caring and wildlife conservation, which makes me not mind so much.

With my girlfriend and I growing up watching the 'Crocodile Hunter' it was great to finally visit Australia Zoo.

The highlight of the day by far was the 'wildlife warriors show' amazing to see all the animals and finally the big saltwater croc!... More

I'm a huge fan of Steve Irwin. Massive in fact. I had his VHS boxset and acted out crocodile hunter scenes in the living room when I was 9. So no surprise, I loved the oz zoo! Pros: 1. Up close and personal with the roos, getting to feed them by hand without zoo keepers fussing over me. They were... More

I am not a big Zoo person, but figured i needed to visit while hosting overseas visitors. It was on the expensive side but worth all of it. The detail and care taken in planning all of the enclosures and exhibits, informative and friendly staff make this a great experience. Program is brimming with activities and shows to entertain and... More

Yes, it's more expensive than some "tourist" attractions but as soon as you walk through the gates you can see where the money goes. We are locals and have taken several lots of grandchildren and visitors through over the last few years and they have all been blown away by what they experience. You can get up close with many...

We went to Australia Zoo in March and it was a lovely day out. Travel by train from Brisbane was easy and the zoo wasn't crowded. The staff are very approachable and eager to share their knowledge. I loved the hands on aspect to Australia Zoo because it is done in the spirit of encouraging visitors to become enthusiastic advocates... More
