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!

Croc Express to Australia Zoo from Brisbane
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.

When to Get There
