When you arrive at the zoo, enjoy hours of free time to spend however you wish. Stroll among exhibits housing impressive mammals, birds, and reptiles, including many Outback and bush species like Tasmanian devils, wombats, dingoes, and kangaroos. See animals from around the globe, such as giraffes, rhinos, and zebras at the new African savannah exhibit. Learn about the impressive endangered species and breeding programs that Australia Zoo is involved with. 

See snakes, crocs, free-flight birds and other creatures that helped make the Crocodile Hunter famous at the exciting Wildlife Warriors show in the Crocoseum. See Itinerary below for a sample schedule of supervised feedings, shows, and demonstrations.

Traveler Tips

Be aware though, it's a long day and you are bound by the timeframes that are set up by Croc Express Coach, which is fine for adults but may be too long a day for younger kids.
Make sure to stop by the Wildlife Hospital to see their facilities.

Excellent experience
Excellent transportation and tour to Australian Zoo. We’re fans of Irving family Crocoseum show is great experience and give food to canguros was expectacular
Very poorly organised
Mikayla_J, Jul 2022
The driver didn't say a word when picking us up, not very friendly at all. There was no signage on the bus and no tickets were checked, I wasn't even sure I was on the right bus. When we got to the zoo it was so hard to hear the instructions the driver was giving us, had to rely on people relaying the message down the bus. Ultimately it got me to and from the promised destinations but it was incredibly stressful and unclear.
Awesome Australia Zoo #making memories
David_A, Jul 2022
Had a fantastic day, the live shows were awesome and a must. Definitely an experience not to be missed while in Australia 😊 Disappointed that you don’t travel on the croc express bus, it’s just a basic white bus 😢 the driver was also quite grumpy, we had to be back on the return bus by 3.30 to avoid the traffic !! The zoo is open till 5 and when you are not dropped off till around 10.15 it did make it a bit of a rush to get to see everything
Late Departure Croc Express
Kelly_S, Jul 2022
Depart on time according to the paperwork and if you plan on doing another stops make it known ahead of time.
The tour was just as...
Denise_S, Jul 2022
The tour was just as described. Plenty to see and do. Got up close to the koala and kangaroos. Friendly staff.
Late Passengers ruin trip
Tracey_S, Jul 2022
3 people were late coming back- we waited close to an hour for them to come to the bus and left all other people waiting. The driver said be back at 4. There should be a policy that if you are late (maybe 20 minutes) the bus leaves. It was ridiculous. No one on that bus was happy to wait 50 minutes for them to not even show up.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Tracey we have contacted that guests, They had to left early doing PCR test. They excused that could not contacted us. Anyway we have never had that situation before so now as you suggested we will make a new policy. We are deeply apologies for the inconvenient, hope you can join our others in the future.

Good but can be better
Allan_H, Jul 2022
The pick up point said the Sebel, but the bus was in front of the Mantra. Getting back, we delayed 45 minutes waiting for three people that were late. We left without them after we complained with the driver.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi thank you for sending us the review. Due to traffic and some unexpected circumstances we had to stop or move our big 57 seater bus. Apologies the inconvenience, Kate passengers they left the zoo without telling us. Again deeply apologies
This score is based on operator, not the great Zoo
Josephine_L, Jul 2022
We attended this tour Thursday, 30th June. This rating is purely based on the tour operator, NOT the Zoo itself. We were messaged the day before that the bus will be a big 57 seater and may be late. The bus was late, and the bus driver and the extra tour operator didn't check anyone's bookings, just did a head count. Our booking clearly states that this isn't entry to the zoo and the tour operator will organise entry. When we got there, I asked the operator and they insisted our booking would suffice for entry. A couple ahead of us in line had the same concerns, and explained it to the zoo staff member. They clarified that this was not eligible for entry, but LUCKILY let them and us in!! Not sure how the rest of the 50+ ppl fared, assumed they got in too. So, very unprofessional tour operator. But in the end, they got us there and back. They should also be clear when announcing bus stops, 1 for Brisbane and 1 for Gold Coast stop. The Zoo itself is great!!! Worth going to

Great day out.
Maria_A, Jun 2022
Reliable on time and polite driver. Just a little disappointed with the bus. It was a little old and windows fogged up. Radio would have be nicer for the 1 hour drive but otherwise doable. Australia zoo awesome.

Great experience.
Brooke_S, May 2022
Such a good deal. Great day out, they were on time and your ticket is included! I know for me being a student, my ticket itself was $50 so paying $15 for each way there and having the ticket be included is such a steal. Highly recommend. But lunch isn’t included.
