Australia - Queensland
AUSTRALIA ZOO

 

What's on this Page:

 

INTRODUCTION:

Australia Zoo is a must visit attraction of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. A full day of activities, interest and sites are assured and will be enjoyed by all - especially the kids. I did not see one dis-intrested kid during my recent visit - they were all very keen. I did see some tired kids as the day went on however.

FEES:

Admission prices to Australia Zoo are not cheap, though there are some extremely good annual deals and the like that improve the fee structure tremendously. However, it must be said that you do get a lot for the price of admission, including access to the hugely popular Crocoseum and the various shows held there, as well as at other locations throughout the zoo over the course of the day.

You will want some cash on hand while in the zoo if you intend to purchase various additional items (such as Kangaroo food, special photos, etc), as well as other more specialised ways to see the zoo.

There is an extra fee for visiting the animal hospital.

It needs to be also mentioned that part of the admission fees goes towards supporting various conservation projects being undertaken by Australia Zoo.

ATTRACTIONS/WALKS:

The zoo itself is the attraction of course, though throughout the zoo there are many things to see and to get involved in. There is a daily program of events, including various animal feeding times, the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Show (recommended) and more. The program is included on the visitor information issued on arrival, as well as the website.

Throughout the zoo there are numerous opportunities to buy stuff and places to eat and drink. no opportunity is missed for an opportunity to sell the visitor something and no visitors appear to be concerned by that, rather most embrace the convenience of the opportunities offered.

CAMPING FACILITIES:

There is obviously no camping in the zoo - there are accommodation options nearby however.

MY VISITS:

I have visited Australia Zoo twice. My first visit coincided with the death of the Crocodile Hunter (Steve Irwin). My second visit was on the 12th August 2013. Whenever I am in the area I am quite likely to visit again.

MAPS:

An excellent map is provided when you purchase your entrance ticket and an interactive map can be found on the Australia Zoo website.

For a helpful map of the local area visit the local visitor information centres where the 'Glass House Country' map can be obtained.

There is also a good collection of local maps that can be downloaded from the 'Hinterland Tourism' website.
