Pase el día en el Zoo de Australia, el legado viviente de Steve Irwin, el famoso cazador de cocodrilos australiano. Con traslados de ida y vuelta al hotel desde Brisbane o la Costa Dorada incluidos, viajará en un autobús con aire acondicionado del servicio Croc Express y disfrutará durante horas explorando este fantástico parque temático de fauna y flora salvaje.
A very comfortable environment where animals are out and about with handlers, and encompass a large area of their own mingling with the crowd - roos. I found that based on expectations, I was disappointed in the layout, paths for foot navigation and signs. There needs to be more and clearer signs. While the train has a logical path around the Zoo, the pedestrian path is momre of a maze. Sins from one end of the park and from point A to B neat to be re-engineered. On the other hand, the shows and animals are in a special place, with special people which makes this Zoo unique. Pet and mingle with the roos, be on a train while a handler is walking a cheetah as if it were a cat. The stories and efforts of conservation of species is thrilling.
Croc Express was worth the money as a tour. Our tour guide Chris was outstanding, clear, precise and funny. You are there a full day.
Excellent tour, although weeks later it is not as easy to recall and review. we loved the noon show with the trained birds and the crooks - very well done. Was very hot and humid the day we were there but did get a chance to pet Koalas, feed the Kangaroos, and see the tired Tasmanian Devil. Overall, a not to miss tour if you are in the Brisbane area.
Sadly it monsooned down for 2 hours when we first got there all the way through the Croc experience in the massive main stadium. This is a great Zoo with the usual walk through areas of Australian wildlife that you would expect. We stayed in Surfers Paradise which unfortunately made for an over 2 hour trip there and back. Maybe not quite the same Zoo since the great man has departed but still worth a visit.
The bus pick up and exchange at bus terminal was a bit confusing and the bus ride to Zoo takes just over an hour but Chris the driver shared a lot of good information with us. The bus itself needed some repairs as the diesel smell was quite strong. We has 6 hours at the zoo to see the shows and animals. Loved the koala bears . It was raining all day so it wasn't busy. The zoo is worth going to.
The only zoo I have ever visited that rates right up there with Disney, but perhaps a step better, depends on your philosophy. There is a lot more interaction with the animals from their keepers, something Stever Irwin believed in. Co-existence between animals and humans, we were impressed.
