Good day out, especially for the kids. If you have kids, bring them to the Australia Zoo to pet and meet the animals. Kangaroos, koalas, crocodiles, you name it. Highly recommended.

The zoo and how they teach conservation was excellent. Would go again for sure! Enjoyed petting the kangaroos and learning about the natural habitat of the various mammals and reptiles that were available for viewing.

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.

Fun time, and the croc show was fascinating.
