Our driver was very informative during our drive to the zoo. Lots of information about Australia and the sights along the way, so that was fun. He offered great advice about the zoo and some of the attractions to make our visit the best it could be. On the drive back afterward, he was respectful of the fact that we were tired so much less chatter. The zoo was really cool, pretty much exactly what I expected. There are many water stations and restrooms along the way as you walk throughout the zoo. The staff were very friendly and eager to answer questions. I would definitely recommend this excursion to others. 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.

We had a terrific day at the Australia Zoo, which pays homage to the late wonderful Steve Irwin. The show at the Crocoseum was fun, but the best parts of this facility are its layout, its tremendous array of animals, its cleanliness and even the food was great! We were picked up a block away from our hotel and our driver gave us some interesting facts on the way there. We loved it!

As a tourist there is no better way to get to and from the Australia Zoo than by Croc Express Coach. It was a comfortable, air conditioned coach, that went from the Brisbane CBD to the Australia Zoo, with the Australia Zoo ticket included in the price. It also made the entry into the Zoo easier since we entered through the large group entrance and we did not have to wait in the normal line. After a long day of walking all over the Zoo, it was nice to jump back on the coach and have someone else drive us back to Brisbane. I would highly recommend the Australia Zoo by Croc Express Coach to anyone desiring to visit the Zoo from Brisbane or the Gold Coast.

The driver of the coach was very informative and provided many tips to get the best experience out of our day at the zoo. There is no wifi onboard the coach or charging stations. Once at the zoo we experienced everything and had no problem getting it all done in the time allotted. The highlight of the zoo is the croceseum and the show! To make this zoo experience even better, book an animal encounter! The zoo is small compared to Amercian zoos, but still had many things to see.

Was a bit worried that this would be a Disneyland kind of venue, designed to please tourists. Was impressed by the great environment for animals

The Croc Express was easy. No car, no problem. We walked a Wambat, saw the hospital behind the scenes, petted a koala and fed the wallabies.

This was an amazing trip and one I am so happy I did. I would recommend it to anyone. There is so much to see and you do get close to the animals.

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.

Wow!! Best trip yet! So full of knowledge and enthusiasm, the croc show outstanding!! The koala holding experience very well organised (although very pricey) absolute must!!

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.

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

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

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.

Great day, picked up from my hotel and apart from the long trip to get there from the Gold Coast it was an absolutely fantastic day, especially Tiger Island.

We really enjoyed our trip to Australia Zoo. The bus driver was particularly friendly and helpful and went out of his way to accommodate everyone. Whilst at the zoo we especially enjoyed the crocodile show and walking amongst the kangaroos to feed them. Definitely a lovely day out and worth the trip.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Brisbane. The drive from Brisbane to the zoo was about an hour but it was a nice chance to see the countryside. And it certainly was well worth us not renting a car and driving ourselves. We found every single employee they're extremely helpful. Go to the website for the Australia zoo prior to your visit It is worth the time invested. I booked several animal encounters before our trip and was glad I did because Nother couple on our tour tried to book that day and everything for the most part was full. The cheetah in counter was an absolutely amazing experience and well worth the money. Also did the giraffe and zebra combo encounter was delightful as well a wonderful day at the zoo. Even for adults!
