Brilliant day out for all the family. Being able to see Australian wildlife up close and learn about the legacy of the late Steve Irwin in terms of conservation was great. The regular shows throughout the day were excellent too. Although the park was busy we never felt over crowded or had to queue to see any exhibits. Lots of... More

I visited Australia Zoo last year and to be honest was very disappointed. Although it was pouring down with rain all day it just didn't feel any different from any other zoo - which for the price I paid I was disappointed at. There is a good selection of animals to see and the tiger and crocodile shows were good.The... More

As a true "zoo goer" i was really excited to see signs to the former home of Aussie Icon Steeve Irwin. However I felt a little let down by how many places there were ready to trade you an imported stuffed animal for a couple of bucks. Parking was free and the park was overall pretty clean. The staff really... More

Sing along folks! Ha! Had a fab day here with family, 4 adults and a small one, only 15months old. Great day out. Easy parking, value for money when you consider you will be in the zoo all day to see it all. Very clean, animals look well looked after and their enclosures are really well maintained. Food court is... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, The zoo is different than those in North America. I've decided that is a good thing. The Australia Zoo is more casual, visitors can be more interactive with the animals and there are great opportunities to be even more interactive (Animal Encounters). The Animal Encounters are even better than we expected and worth the cost... More

Enjoyed a full day at Australia Zoo with friends and family. We got there at opening time and had no trouble securing a car park. Very good exhibits however quite some distance to walk between some of them (a shuttle bus is available if you don't want to walk). The long walk would be hot in summer. Watched the show... More

Like many I'm sure, I wanted to check out the zoo because of Steve Irwin. After going there, I've got mixed thoughts. I left expecting more which is a shame. Maybe my expectations were too high and I was spoiled by other zoos and sanctuaries. First of all, I thought the price of admission was a little high at around... More

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
