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 as well as viewing them from the large grandstand.

There are many wildlife shows 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 plenty of nice shady areas to enjoy a picnic lunch, so bring a blanket and experience the beautiful surroundings.

  • 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,
