5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

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.

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.

alot of the reason for the 5 stars is the excellent driver we had on the way to the zoo. it was the start of a long weekend and as well as a n accident or road works on the Bruce highway the traffic was horrendous. we were think that most of our allocated time at the zoo would be spent sitting in traffic. thanks to the excellent local knowledge of our driver he was able to re-route us and we were only about 30mins late getting there. this still gave us plenty of time at the zoo to enjoy our day. Zoo is huge so lots of walking unless you use the free shuttle. we choose to walk as sometimes the time you take waiting for the shuttle you can walk there quicker. It was a Very Hot day so drink lots of water and there are water fountains located all around the zoo. The croc show and tiger display was well worth watching. Extrermely clean and tidy grounds and lots to look at. this was our 2nd visit but 1st since the new areas have opened. an enjoyable day

Russell, our driver, was a great source of information about Australia Zoo and we benefitted from his practical advice.

The ride to the zoo was quick and comfortable, although the pick up time from my hotel was a bit delayed because of a traffic accident that morning. Nonetheless, we got out of the transit center on time and the bus driver knowledgeably highlighted the zoo's attractions and gave us tips for navigating our time there on the ride up to Beerwah. Once we got there, we had 5 hours to explore the zoo and see everything there is to see. I skipped the Africa section -- my primary aim was to see all of the Australian animals we don't have in the US -- but 5 hours was more than enough time to take in a few shows, hold a koala, feed the kangaroos, and see all the other sections at a leisurely pace. Highly recommend! Great value, since price includes transportation as well as zoo admission.
