A wonderful experience As two nature lovers from Europe we have enjoyed Steve Irwin’s programs since the nineties, and visiting his zoo has been on our bucket list for all those years. I think we were fortunate to visit it off-season (in April) on a sunny day with no crowds. The animals seem well-treated in good environments. I do hope,... More

Yes entrance fees are more than most attractions but this is not just a zoo . The conditions the animals are kept in are... More

We are from NSW and made a 12 hour trip to Kingscliff. Having three children - 6, 2, and a 1 year old we thought we would make the 2 hour trip to Beerwah and miss the theme parks. The price was a little more expensive than other zoos but offers so much more. Being able to see animals out... More

This isn't a huge zoo compared with a few of the world-class zoos I've visited, but it is a beautiful one in a very nice rainforest setting. You get fairly close to a lot of animals, and I couldn't help myself--the kid in me forced me to feed the wallabies and kangaroos. Unlike other places we visited in Australia, they... More

This was a good place to go and take the kids to keep them entertained. It's probably a bit commercial, and we actually liked the natural surrounds better, but its still worth a look.

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. But they really need to improve on the food available, it to is too expensive! Install BBQ's and promote picnics, the... More

With my girlfriend and I growing up watching the 'Crocodile Hunter' it was great to finally visit Australia Zoo. Lots of native Australian Wildlife to see and other non native species was a great day out. 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
