The bus driver that we had was very informative on the wasy out, pointing out things of interest. The Zoo itself is absolutely amazing, it is a beautiful zoo to walk around with very friendly staff and the shows that we watched at different times around the zoo were great and very informative.
I could have gone back the next day and still enjoyed it as much as I did the first day. Will definately be going back for another visit.
Booking through Viator was very easy and everything fell into place, just had to ring and confirm when we got there and was picked up from our apartment and taken to where the bus left from, then the bus dropped us bac k at our apartment.
Well organised by viator. Zoo is a must do. Wear sensible shoes as lots of walking. Croc show made the day. Take plenty of money for photos with cheater, koala etc would recommend
Very good trip, driver was very friendly and knowledgeable and we all had a great day at the Zoo. The only negative was that we couldn't get to see all of the zoo because of the 3.45pm departure time. At least 4.30pm would have been a lot more reasonable. Otherwise would have given 5 stars.
Really good zoo. The enclosures are pretty large which is good to see and there are loads of shows and talks on throughout the day. Go to the show in the main arena that's on at around noon that was the best one in our opinion.
We really enjoyed this zoo, especially the African area!
We enjoyed our day at the zoo. If you are in the area, you really should visit this zoo. The Cros Express Coach made it easy to get there. We would highly recommend this trip.
OUR TRIP TO AUSTRALIA ZOO WAS SO GREAT FROM THE TIME WE WERE PICKED UP AT OUR GOLD COAST APARTMENT TO THE TIME WE RETURNED WAS EXCELLENT THANK YOU.
We enjoyed our day at the zoo - all went according to plan except we weren't aware that the bus that took us to the Transit Centre picked up at the rear of the Marriott, not the front where we were waiting. The bus driver phoned me which was good.
The Australia Zoo was a 'must do' experiance for us while we were in Brisbane and we enjoyed our day there. We found the cost of the trip to be expensive but as it was a one time only visit decided that we had to do it.

This is a great zoo. Lots to see and do. I have been here three times and I will go back when I am in Brisbane. My one bit of advice wear a hat and go on a cooler day!
We had a great time at the Zoo which was just great. The driver did a great job as well. A perfect day in Brisbane.
The transfer was on time and our driver Alfie was great. On the drive up to the zoo he pointed out everything you wanted to know.Very smooth ride. The zoo is fun day, you get up close to the Koalas and Kangroos and of course crocs.
1st class trip, driver was full of knowledge and good tips for the zoo visit
Our transfer to the zoo was great. Everything ran like clockwork. It made for a stress-free day for the group of four of us. My mother and I were disappointed in Australia Zoo however. It is exceptionally well-kept, but it is a small zoo, with a limited range of animals. You get the impression from the name that it is the best zoo Australia has to offer. We wonder how many overseas tourists are of this impression too. Our visit was at the start of February and we got the impression that many of the staff were exhausted after the school holidays and lacked motivation to make the visit exciting. There was one older male worker at the morning Elephant Feeding display in particular, that was even quite rude to myself and later my mother as we approached an elephant to feed it. The Crocoseum experience was also disappointing. I realise that animals are unpredictable and that you cannot expect that they will perform on queue each time, but the young man dealing with the croc lacked confidence and his approaches to the croc were nothing like what we expected. Only one of the birds performed as was expected in their part of the show, indicating a lack of training. This was also disappointing. The food court area was good and we loved the hand-made wooden tables. It is a shame that Steve's infectious enthusiasm was not evident on the day we visited Australia Zoo.
This was an excellent tour. It was wonderful -- unlike any other zoo I have visited.
