I would highly recommend going to the Zoo, if you are able to get there. Great place, lots of fun, and very kid friendly!

Get there early with a planned map of where you want to go and when the different shows are on. There is a bus for those that can't get around but expect to have to wait awhile for it to get to your vicinity. Where comfortable shoes and carry water. Some free fresh water fountains are available for drinking in... More

Great day at the zoo. The animals looked very loved and cared for. Everything clean and tidy. The show at the main arena was great. The tigers were beautiful. Loved it all. Would go again and recommend to everyone.

Been to Australia Zoo several times and always amazed at the sheer enormity of the range of animals at the Zoo and the work done in the Wildlife Hospital and the interactive animal tours available. Unfortunately quite pricey for entrance and food :( But a worthwhile experience and should be enjoyed with family or a big group to get the... More

We were on a cruise ship. Disappointed that there was no local affordable transportation from the port, so we took a bus from the cruise ship. Sorry we didn't have more time there. They really do want you to see and touch as many animals as can be safely done. We just about fell over when we saw a staffer... More

The zoo is extremely well run and the staff are very friendly and willing to answer many questions. We were able to pet an alligator, koala,python, and a wombat. The history of the zoo and Steve Irwins contribution to conservation and breeding programmes are displayed on large areas throughout the zoo for all to read as you wander round. However... More

This time went with my granddaughter who studies husbandry in Holland Couldn't have made her happier! She also went for a picture with a koala, Australia Zoo is one of the few places where you can still pose with a koala Needles to say the zoo was the highlight of her trip to Australia

I love this zoo, you get to see animals that are well cared for, that you know are the focus of the staff and yet they are still welcoming and allow interaction with the animals. Every staff member seems to take on board the Steve Irwin philosophy of caring for animals and the environment and making a difference in the... More

This is my third visit it Australia Zoo but each time there seems to be fewer animals. There was only one Tasmanian Devil and that was asleep! Only two echidnas, which again were asleep. Although I don't expect animals to be woken for us I saw more of these in the past and they were awake and moving. It seemed... More

We visited the zoo in July, and was rather disappointed at the lack of animals there. Unfortunately there were no elephants, monkeys, lions or hippos, animals you would normally expect to find in a zoo. The bird show was the highlight. The crocodile part of the show wasn't even exciting. One wandered into the arena then ate some meat from... More
