Australia Zoo – Location, Animals, Opening Hours, Ticket Prices & Map

Australia Zoo is jam-packed full of fun and adventures and makes for a great day out for the whole family. Go for a walk around Africa and see one of the best open range exhibits in Australia. Hop aboard the free Africa Safari Shuttle and keep your eyes peeled for giraffes, zebra and rhinos. Watch the animals interact as they would in the wild in this open enclosure.

Stop off at the world-famous Crocoseum, where you can see how crocodiles live and behave in the wild. To educate visitors about these magnificent creatures, don’t miss the crocodiles in an action-packed show full of discovery and adventure.

Come and see the big cats at the Tiger Temple, where you will get up close to the majestic Sumatran and Bengal Tigers. Visitors can see these big cats play in the water from the underwater viewing enclosure and viewing them from the large grandstand.

Many wildlife shows are scheduled throughout the day, so make sure you check the schedule below and visit the otters, crocs, koalas, and birds of prey and hear the keepers talk about these magnificent animals.

Visitors are welcome to bring their own food and snacks to Australia Zoo. There are many lovely shady areas to enjoy a picnic lunch, so bring a blanket and experience the beautiful surroundings. Or you can always purchase lunch from the Feeding Frenzy food court, which sells hot and cold lunch options, drinks and ice creams.

    • Hi Veronica,

      I have checked the official Australia Zoo website and it does state that wheelchairs are available for hire at a cost of $20 for the day.

      There aren’t any extra further details further than that, but it does mention to call them on (07) 5436 2030 to book ahead of time (i am not sure if you can secure one on the spot, or they suggest this due to availability).

      Have a great day there.


  • Good Morning Folks,
    I am trying to arrange a bus trip for members of our club. We are all seniors and some have walkers and sticks and we are
    all veterans. Could you please let me know what time the crocodiles are feed and what time their display is on. We have to come from the Fraser Coast and I am trying to decide what time we would have to leave. How much notice would you
    require to purchase discount tickets. Also is there easy parking available for a 20 seater bus. Would it also be possible
    to drop our members off at the front door, and then park the bus.
    Thank you for any assistance you can give me.

    • Hi May, thanks for reaching out.

      The crocodile feeding time is usually at 2.30pm in the afternoon.

      Unfortunately the discounted tickets we had on sale through Groupon have now expired. However you can still purchase tickets via Experience Oz online here.

      As for parking, you can certainly drop your members close to the door and there is plenty of free parking for a 20 seater bus.

      Have a wonderful time at Australia Zoo!

  • Does the free shuttle take us to all parts of the Zoo? We have a group of 15 from Bellcarra Retirement Resort at Caloundra visiting on Tuesday 2nd August around 9.30.a.m. Can someone ring me and let me know where we can park our bus and if we can pay individually on the day. Thanks Marlene.

    • Hi Marlene,

      The shuttle does not cover all of the zoo, there is a fair amount of walking required if you want to see all parts of the zoo.

      I recommend you contact Australia Zoo directly on (07) 5436 2000 to get further information on where to park your bus and how to get the best discount for a group of seniors.

      Best Regards,
