We have recently visited Australia Zoo and were really impressed with the animals and the grounds. Some of the highlights were getting up close to a Koala, seeing the show at the crocoseum and seeing the African Animals. There is a lot of walking involved however we hopped on the shuttle from the African area back to the beginning to... More

The best zoo I've ever been too. It was incredible and very interesting. I mainly went there for Steve Irwin and it still feels as if he is still with us. There's loads to do, the shows are awesome and I would recommend going to as many as you can. You learn a lot about the animals, and usually they're... More

We loved our time at the Australia Zoo. Upon arrival via train from Brisbane, we were greeted in the pre-paid ticket line that was smooth and easy. Our first stop was to hold a koala ($25 AU) and get our photo. You can do this and they let you take your own photo too. Super nice staff and my daughter... More

This is a great zoo. The keeper talks are wonderful for learning more about the animals. The big Crocoseum show is classic Steve Irwin. For me the greatness of the zoo was in how well the animals were cared for and the dedication of the staff. Everyone was cheerful and willing to answer questions and seemed to genuinely love their...

Gosh it was a surprise....we spent 4 hours here and probably only saw about half of it. The crocodiles were intimidating but a must see. We saw the Croc show. This was entertaining and loved the bird show part too! We caught the train up to the African section and some of the handlers had a cheetah out for a... More

Fairly pricey however will keep you entertained all day. Make sure you are there early to catch all the good shows that run throughout the day. Have been there twice now, once in December and once in March, so much better the second time around as much less crowded. Well worth a visit to the animal hospital.

We were really excited to go and visit Steve Irwin's Zoo, but we were not too impressed. We expected much more for the $ 120.50 entry fee for two adults. Compared with the $92 for two at Taronga Zoo, I would even say that Australia Zoo was a bit of a rip off. The show in the Crocoseum was certainly... More

Visiting from Tasmania I took my 4 year old daughter to Australia Zoo. We're zoo fanatics and this one is truly world class. Great flat walkable areas. Wonderful large enclosures. Just great!

We had a great time. The zoo is very well thought out. You can walk to attractions or catch the shuttle if you want a break. Zoo staff were all very friendly and allow the kids to meet and touch a variety of animals. Lots of different animals to see and plenty of shows to entertain. My kids had a... More
