Excellent place, loads of animals to see. The main show was great especially the croc show. Clean n tidy place. From WA but we're staying in Gold Coast so the 2hr drive was definitely worth it!!

Had a great afternoon strolling around this wonderful place, a credit to the Irwins. I was amazed at how clean the zoo was including the enclosures, a most see.

Honestly with learning more about zoos the last few years the concept of them always makes me a bit uncomfortable and often your not sure if the whole Spiel of conservation and education is that honest...this place certainly seems to uphold that though!! Fantastic day out with young children (and for the adults too). The walk around the grounds in... More

This zoo is a wonderful place to visit. It is well sign posted from Brisbane and if I had had more time I would have taken the scenic route. The major highway is rather boring for most of the journey and visitors would probably love to see the dramatic Glasshouse Mountains more clearly. Admission price is expensive and I would... More

We loved this zoo! I've been to many zoos and none come close to the Australian Zoo. You can feel the legacy the Steve left behind. Many of the animals on the property were saved by Steve. The animals seem happy as well as the staff. It's a nice day trip from Brisbane. If you finish early enough you can... More

This is a place that you want to say you've been too. It is huge so be prepared to walk a lot or you can jump on and off the Safari Shuttle bus they have running through the park every half hour. They have live shows etc just like any other zoo the reason we enjoyed it was the animals... More

Our family and extended family visited here last week. We were impressed with the cleanliness and stunning surroundings. It doesn't feel like a zoo at all. The kids had a great time. The staff were friendly and helpful. We found the camel staff a bit abrupt. I didn't ride, but was going to assist my husband with our two special... More

We went super early in the morning and it was definitely worth it! As a previous Seasons Pass Holder, we go straight to the Kangaroo Sanctuary and spend heaps of time with the Kangaroos uninterrupted before crowds of people show up and scare them off. The grounds are kept very clean and staff members are extremely friendly and knowledgeable! My... More

We were a group of 4 adults and 3 children. We had the most amazing day! The amount of 'extras' you can do is great - there is a cost to these but we found them to be well worth it. Additional activities do get booked up quickly so I'd try to book in advance. (All information of what's on... More
