Its a must see thing whenever u visit australia. U can spend 3 to 4 hours looking around. There are a variety snakes, crocs and lizards. But what i loved the most were the koalas and the kangaroos. Also not to forget the giraffe, zebra and rhino. It is so well maintained as if the animals live in their natural... More

A family group of 10 of us visited the zoo, we all got to see our favourites, was a very hot day, suggest you catch train up to Africa and work your way back to front of park. The show was the highlight, be sure to sit on the shady side. Food is reasonably priced and lots of spots to... More

We took the kids to the zoo during the school holidays. It was a lovely experience to zoo facilities are quite good and well laid out. We were able to see all of the animals. It was a hot day, we took plenty of ice water and a picnic lunch. My favorite area was Africa.

Very well laid out, we went late December, not busy at all, which was great for a photo with a koala. Lots of great photo opportunities and very informative staff who were willing to chat about the animals and the zoo. My daughter enjoyed the off track Segway tour.

WoW! What a fantastic Zoo to visit. We had to drive 2 hrs from our accommodation and put up with the heat and school holiday crowds but it was well worth every cent. If you have the money, I suggest you hire a caddie which comes with a tour guide, VIP seating, free cold water and animal feed. We loved... More

We have had annual passes to the Zoo for the last 2 years, we have 2 young children and we still find something new to do or see each time we go there. The staff are so happy to help and answer any questions, it is so clean, there is so much to see and so many opportunities to interact... More

We visited for a single day and had a great time. Don't miss the main show in the Croceseum. By visiting in the holidays we got to see the Irwin family at the show which was a bonus. Ideally, if you have two days, you would get the most out of your visit. Like any of the main attractions, you... More

Probably shouldn't have had such high expectations but being a huge Steve Irwin fan as a kid and being from England I was pretty pleased to be visiting Australia zoo. The shows are really good, the staff are great and really friendly 5* for their effort and willingness to make it a great time for everyone. The zoo is a... More

This is a must to visit if you are on the Sunshine Coast. A very entertaining and interesting day. It can be very busy during school holidays. The entry is fairly expensive, but please bear in mind that the animals must cost a fortune to feed and look after. If you have time, try to visit their animal hospital and... More
