This score is based on operator, not the great Zoo
, 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.

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.
, 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.

We had to wait for more than 30 minutes for pick up and package said guide included but we didn’t have any guide. Overall, this package is good transportation and entrance 👍👍

Bob, our driver was very friendly and informative. He was helpful, joined the conversation when appropriate and gave us some good hints.
Amazing day out
, Feb 2021
We got picked up from the hotel at 8am, we were the only ones on the bus this day but they were still more than happy to take us. On route our driver told us all about the zoo and gave advice on where to go during the day. Once arriving at the zoo he promptly got us in and told us when to meet him or to ring if we wanted to leave earlier. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and the price was brilliant for transfers and entry. I’d highly recommend!
Australia zoo a must.
, Oct 2020
A must do, especially if you love animals or just want to have a great day and be educated. Plenty of interesting things to see and do not just for children but adults too.
Great Experience
, Apr 2020
The Australia Zoo was the highlight of my 2.5 week trip! I saw Norman ? the baby tiger walking next to me & held a koala, what could be better?? The bus was on-time & the hints they gave us about the zoo were great!

Thank you Kate for your bright and happy review. It's so lovely to read this at a time when we are all in lockdown and missing the happiness of a job in tourism. Stay safe!

Great place, the zoo animals all seem to like being there ,as the natural habitat was there and recreated better any other zoo I’ve seen. Very clean
A great, fun trip
, Mar 2020
I've always wanted to visit the Australia zoo, so I was thrilled when I finally got the chance. The service was great, a friend and I took the bus from Brisbane to the zoo and back again, with a generous amount oftime at the zoo itself. The zoo is terrific, and our driver was very polite and entertaining. There was a slight confusion about pickup that could have been handled better on both sides, but overall I highly recommend, it was a great trip.
No Driving

The drive was lovely gave us heaps of information on how to make the most of our day at the zoo. Also gave us a little history on the area on our bus trip.
Fabulous Day
