We were really impressed by the shows, the interactivity, animal exhibits and landscaping. Very impressive indeed and I'd say it's better than the Singapore zoo and better than Taronga Zoo for animal enclosures. The interactivity and feeding the children's zoo and kangaroos were impressive, as with being able to pat the Kolas. Obviously Australia Zoo specializes in crocodiles. For the... More

This is an amazing zoo which excels at looking after its animals (and its customers!) and is at the cutting edge of conservation and breaking the mould of the traditional zoo experience. Prepare for close encounters with all sorts of animals, you never know what you are going to see next around the corner - Tasmanian devil out for a... More

Every animal you encounter is extremely healthy physically and mentally by the looks of it. This zoo is massive, it is really spread out. We enjoyed our time here but got a bit confused on how to get to places. We loved the otters the most they are really cute! Food prices are outta this world! Almost $5 for one... More

What a nice zoo! The exhibits are huge and the animals are loved and well taken care of! It feels a little like Bindi-Land though. Her name is all over everything and half of the gift shop is her videos and CDs.

The zoo is to an exceptional standard and it was an honour to visit the great man (Steve Irwins) legacy ! Great food, great shows, very friendly and helpful staff everywhere, the segway lesson & ride was... More

A great zoo, very educational, so many things for children to do. We arrived at 10.00am and were some of the last to leave at 5 pm and didn't see all the zoo had to offer. You do need as much time as possible. It's good to down load the app before you go so you can plan your day.... More

The first thing I did when I got off the Plane was to drive to the Steve Irwin Australia's zoo. it was brilliant to see Australia's wildlife up close. It very much helped, in my later travels in Australia, in identifying the wildlife I saw.

I love this view for its open spaces and the animals look more content than in smaller zoos. For me, its a valuable zoo for education and conservation. The staff are knowledgeable and you can see they are really passionate about what they are doing.

Very tropical environment filled with plenty of animals from all over the world and lots of hands on opportunities. We were able to pet a Kangaroos, Koalas, Hairy Nosed Wombat. Lots and Lots of staff around to answer any questions that may arise. A good days experience.
