    Stained and ripped old towels mean a lot to a sick koala. Pay an extra $2 to see the animals in the Wildlife Warriors Hospital and donate a towel at the same time. It's good karma. Read more

    If you are on the Sunshine Coast, whether a local or tourist, I recommend you take the time to visit Australia Zoo - it is much more than a few crocs, and really is a special experience.. Read more

    Best Zoo I've ever been to! The animal shows are amazing - definitely go there! My favourite was the Koala walk - it's just so cute to be so close to those animals. You can even pat some if you like!

    Best zoo experience I've ever had. Make sure to see the animal show; the birds are very beautiful and well trained. You can feed the kangaroos and pet koalas. Tip: go when the kids are in school.

    Took a trip to Australia Zoo for the afternoon and managed to see one of the live animal shows. They wanted to show people how quick a 'croc' can move on land.

    Very friendly and knowledgable staff. At first I thought $59 was steep, but it's actually very fair with the variety of animals in such a vast landspace with many shows and facilities.

    The food court aka the feeding frenzy... Wouldn't be such a frenzy it it was a logical set up... It's stupid how they have different tills for different sections of the menu. It's regarded

    Bellissimo!! Puoi accarezzare i koala che sono a portata di mano di tutti e ci son delle zone in cui puoi entrare dove i canguri sono liberi. Suggestivo anche lo show al crocoseum.
