“Fantastic service”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

This company (or just, Chris) offers a wonderful door-to-door service from your accommodation in Brisbane to Australia Zoo in Beerwah, and back. The company owner and van-driver Chris knows a great deal about the zoo and offers handy hints and tips before he lets you go off and explore, he also offers bottles of water for $1 to save you paying an extortionate $4.30 for a bottle at the zoo. This service really made our trip to the zoo.

“More than just a transfer to Australia Zoo - it's a real "Crikey" experience”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

The Croc Connection is not just a great value, personalised, door to door transfer from Brisbane to Australia Zoo. Owner and operator, Chris, is a former employee of Steve and Terry Irwin. He loves promoting Australia Zoo and everything about Steve Irwin and his passion for preserving wildlife. His description of the zoo, and a video he shows on the way up about the Crocodile Hunter's life, really sets the mood for the day. He uses a modern 14 seater air conditioned mini-bus, so very comfortable ride. Priority check in at the zoo speeds up the process. Chris' recommendations about what to see in a day at the zoo are spot on. Don't forget to buy a couple of his $1 bottles of water - it's four times the price when you get through the gate! Well done Chris. Keep up the great service!

“Rocks around the Crocs”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

If you're looking to visit Australia Zoo whilst in Brisbane,you'll struggle to find a better service than CC Croc Connections. Picking you up straight from your CBD hotel, The owner Chris whisks you to Beerwah in a comfy 14 seater minibus, arriving at 10:15. Along the way,you'll get some great tips & facts + inside knowledge from someone who worked alongside Steve & Terri Irwin at the zoo for 2 years. You also get to watch a DVD or two to get you in the mood. Chris has been running the business for 10 years & it's success owes much to great cutromer service & convenience. You'll get a full day in the park, & if you put the travel tips into practice,you'll definitely get the most out of your visit.

“Outstanding day out”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Spending three weeks in Australia and going on a load of tours and excursions i can say that Aussies are the friendliest bunch of people ever, but Chris was just awesome.

We picked us up in a brand new HiAce, so there we're only about 10 of us, a nice small group. He told us a bit about the zoo and his involvement (which was nice to hear). After that he put on a move about Steve Irwin, which helped the hour long trip fly by. When we got close to the zoo, he told us all the best places to go, when the best times to go were and a whole slew of other useful information.

Great Guy, Great Trip.

If you're going to Australia Zoo on your Oz adventure - go with Chris; worth every penny and more.

“If you need to go to the Australia Zoo, this is the way to go.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Chris, the driver and owner, picks you up from your accommodation in a roomy, air conditioned van. He has a small audio tour and is very knowledgeable about the Australia Zoo because he used to work there for 2 years. He plays 2 DVDs from Steve Irwin and his life to and from the Zoo which was very entertaining.
The total was $90 AUD to and from your accommodation which included the $59 entrance fee.
Buy his water at $1, trust me. It's $4.40 each in the zoo!
