I was pleasantly surprised by many aspects of the zoo. Firstly, the animals on display were superb. Great variety. Very satisfied.nnAnother worthwhile observation was the cost of food. At most theme parks, food is obscenely expensive. At the Zoo, however, the prices were very reasonable.nnBut the clincher was the encounters you can book. You can spend time engaging with certain animals for around 30 minutes. I saw one such encounter, and I wished it was me in that enclosure.
The best zoo we have ever been to, their staff are accommodating and lovely. The zoo is stunning. Native flora fauna everywhere. A lot of attractions are interactive and you get a real hands on experience. Remember to pack sunscreen and wear comfortable shoes. Well worth the visit. We were there for over 6 hours and did almost 20,000 steps.
I visited Australia Zoo with my partner and rainbow baby. I enjoyed everything about this Zoo. It was probably one of the absolute BEST zoo I have ever been to.nnThe Zoo is very well spread out, plenty of space, plenty of seats to rest feet, lovely long walks to detox from life, the opportunity to learn about animals and snakes, the opportunity to encounter animals. I would have liked to see butterflies here though.nnThe zoo covers a large area yet there’s not many animals to see.nnI could not see much of any legacy of Steve Irwin which is what I came for too, when he died we visited the zoo to sign his shirts, those shirts I could not find on display anywhere, where are they? I would have liked to see that display alone with letters and cards left for him that day. I’m heartbroken his family do not honour him in this way being an Iconic Australian Legend. If he was still alive, zoo would been in a much better way. I am no one to judge but very disappointed in that part.nnThe food court was a bit pricy but I actually very much enjoyed the food court. Food was lovely, healthy and delicious despite the prices.
This place never disappoints. Great friendly staff with lots to see. Be prepared to spend the whole day here. Tip: get your lunch early to avoid the queues especially if you intend seeing the crocodile show and want to get good seats. Fantastic water playground for kids to play in and free animal displays. Paid extra to see the wildlife hospital and was lucky to see several procedures taking place.
The day was great from start to finish. The animals were great as I had hoped but it was better than that as the staff were truly invested in the well being of the animals. I was very surprised with the food for the humans as well. I am a bit of a problem being gluten and lactose intolerant but was able to get a great Caesar chicken salad my wife had a beef wrap both were a good size serving and for a very reasonable price. The footy ovals should check it out and learn how not to gouge the public.nTo do it properly it will take you most of the day.
Amazing from start to finish ! The staff were so helpful even before our visit so thank you to the girls in guest services were! Special shout out to the photographers we had the pleasure of sharing our encounter with you captured some amazing moments and put us at ease. Every keeper/handler we met were so educational and informative, they displayed passion and also great customer service. We saw nothing but happy, healthy, stimulated animals! We were lucky enough to do a few animal encounters which were experiences we will never forget. I highly recommend you do the zoo over 2 days (we did) as it is huge and it allows you to really take it all in. Every animal enclosure was clean and spoiled and well taken care of. This zoo was amazing and I highly recommend it. Hope to visit it again in the future. You guys are doing great work
Fantastic zoo. Always so fun to visit with the kids. Animals well looked after, lots of different areas to explore. Zoo maintained well. They have different experiences for you to do if you would like, holding snack, koala etc. The croc show is always amazing, birds are so beautiful. We missed the cheetah walking around unfortunately. Easy drive from Brisbane, hour and a half. Worth the drive. Would recommend everyone of all ages go visit the team at Australia zoo.
Oh my lord what an amazing experience 😁 what a credit this zoo is to Steve Irwin and his family. I couldn't fault it! There were free playgrounds for the children, clean toilets throughout and places to buy food. Merchandise stores also. The show at the Crocoseum and the Tiger enclosure were amazing. All the animals were easily visible and obviously comfortable and well cared for in their enclosures.nHighly recommend the Zoo for young and old 😊👍
My family and I loved our day at the zoo today so much. There was so much to see and do. The staff were all so friendly to us. The animal areas were lovely and such beautiful gardens.nMy almost 2 year old grandson had the best day with so much on offer for him to do from Grace's play area to the water play area. And the great idea of selling the little pack of a disposable swimming nappy with wipes and a change mat was such a life saver for my daughter to use for him as we weren't expecting there to be a water area for him to play in. Will definitely be back.
Took my wife for her birthday. This place is amazing. There are so many beautiful animals to see, experiences are fantastic and the grounds are massive and beautiful.nIt is so amazing to see the legacy of the very great Steve Irwin go from strength to strength. This zoo is a must because they have such an amazing love for animals, they are truly wildlife Warriors!nWill definitely be going back.
Awesome experience, the grounds are magnificent. The animals containment are very spacious unlike some zoo's I've visited. Took about 4 hours at a medium pace to get around the whole thing.nnI found it to be good value and By no means a tourist trap.nnWould recommend wearing runners as a fair bit of walking is involved.
Such an amazing place to visit, especially having always been a big fan of Steve Irwin. It's a beautiful zoo, so well maintained and a great variety of encounters to choose from. Entry is a bit pricey though, especially with a larger family and all children above 14 requires an adult ticket.
Only a lunatic would rate this below 5 stars. Amazing place with really cool, friendly and always smiling staff. A rare find in Australia to get this level of attention.nnOur children had a great time. The bird show was extraordinary. I have never seen anything quite like it.
Spent the day at Australia zoo with my partner while on holiday and it was one of the best days!nWe did the tortoise and giraffe experience, would highly recommend. Such special moments being about to touch a 60 year old tortoise and feed the giraffes.nEvery single staff member was absolutely beautiful! and you could tell how much they valued their job and animals.nThe whole Zoo had a very special feeling and was very much dedicated to Steve Irwin.nYou will definitely need the WHOLE day to see it all. So get there when it opens. The park is beautifully kept. A great day for the young and old.
