“ok zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to Australia Zoo as a day trip from Noosa. We drove ourselves to the zoo. The zoo itself is well maintained and clean. The croc show was good. The kids enjoyed it. Food and drink as these type of attractions are always a bit pricey but you are able to bring in your own. Can be quite hot and rain in one day during this time of the year and be very crowded.

“Top Marks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We went to Australia Zoo with our 16 month old toddler - and whilst we didn't get to see half of the attractions as we had to go at her pace, we still had a great day. The staff were fabulous and the presentations very informative and the team very proactive in their message of animal conservation. I loved that there were so many staff around and that there was always a team member with the animals so you could always ask questions. There was just a general feeling that the animals were really well looked after. The zoo was really clean and there are a lot of little cafes and kiosks dotted throughout the zoo. We have visitors coming from overseas soon and we will definitely be taking them there to get a true Aussie animal experience.

“Very disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We travelled to Australia zoo with 17 overseas visitors, as a group of greater than 10 we asked re our discount we were told that unless we paid in one payment we would not get a discount, we were then all charged 1.5% credit card charge even though in America all the visitors cards are debit cards, the lady at the desk was rude and abrupt. Spoilt a very excited group of oversea visitors. We live in Brisbane and hosted this youth outing with visitors from California. If each of these puts up a negative comment re there experience it can have a devastating affect on tourism to our great state, The Zoo is OK but not great and was really bad value for money. Wouldn't recommend

“An OK Zoo!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We've been fans of Steve Irwin so we had to come and see his zoo it was a good drive up from where we'd been staying down on the Gold Coast so were looking forward to it.
However I was quite surprised by the ticket price even with a "Senior Discount", The Zoo covered a vast area and was well laid out good directions to all the attractions.
There were lots and lots of "Crocs" more than i expected, kangeroos you could get up close to and feed and for me the best part was actualy being able to touch a Koala.
The bird show in the arena was very good along with the birds of prey display in the aviary.
At the end we decided to visit the Hospital for an extra fee where you can see them treating some of the smaller animals through the glass walls, very interesting spent a while there watching. Large eating facilitiy and gift shop available.
I would say if you've got kids they would love it here so much to see and great if you like "Crocs". just bring plenty of $$.
