Excellent zoo with everything the bigger ones have to offer. Took my family when over from England and was a great way to show her the native animals. Very friendly staff

There were koalas absolutely everywhere, which is perfect if you absolutely love them like me. I had a photo done with a lovely koala called Sergeant, and the staff were super friendly and helpful when it came to taking photos etc. There were also lots of shows on that you could see throughout the day and loads of animals all...

The park offers a unique opportunity to see Australian wildlife at close range, with focus on the koala bear! Definitely worth a visit!

What a lovely place to visit. Friendly staff hands on with the animals but only if they want. Kangaroos have a place to go away from people if they want great area to sit and relax. Great for children

A great location really close to Brisbane - lovely area by the river. The animals are clearly cared for and given a lot of freedom. Great variety of indigenous Australian animals. sit and chill with a kangaroo or hug a koala, watch a reptile show etc. Definitely recommended. Only issue for me is; Koala holding and photo is SUPER rushed...... More

I couldn't visit Australia Zoo because of my trip arrangements so I wanted to find an affordable alternative and this place was a brilliant choice. The entry fee was only $36 and it was a 30-40 mins bus ride from the CBD. I don't recommend going on a hot day because a lot of the animals were hiding in the... More

This place is great for seeing, learning about and cuddling koalas. There are great exhibits for other local animals too, but it's really about the koalas here. A family can get in for $85, and the pics with the koalas are $18 each, which is a deal by tourist standards. You really only get to handle the koalas for as... More

Although the Reserve could be described as a type of zoo, I had never experience anything like it in America. Julian and I first walked past the birds and the bats, although both were much larger than the American varieties. (The Australian bats are probably about five times the size as their American relatives). I was so happy to finally... More
