Never refunded me
I loved this trip overall.

However, I initially booked on December 4th 2020 and had my booking canceled due to insufficient numbers. I was told the booking was automatically going to be refunded so I had to pay again when rebooking. Trip was great when I rebooked for another day, but a month later have still not received my refund from the first trip.

I believe it may be a mistake, if they contact me to rectify the issue I will change the review to 5 stars. Otherwise be wary of them stealing your money if I don’t.

I cant say enough about this excursion! We were notified of pickup by Priscilla and she was on time, a great driver and very informative! She stopped at a couple places for pictures including the Steve Irwin Xway and the Glass Mountains! HIGHLY Recommend her!!!!
The zoo was great! Very clean and friendly! This is by far the best zoo I have ever been to! You can see the animals are very well taken care of. We were able to go to the wildlife hospital and have a look around. We were at the zoo about 5 hours and I did get so see everything and play with the kangaroos and hold a koala, see the Croc show and have lunch!
There is a train that takes you to areas of the zoo which was great for me with a bad knee / back. There are employees walking around with snakes and birds etc... Just Awesome!!!
I cant recommend this excursion enough!!! So worth the Money!!!! Australians do not tip, so no need to... I tried but was told NO.
Thank you so much for making my birthday so special!!!

The pick up from our hotel, the drive to the zoo and the return journey were all great.
We had 6 hours at the zoo, which was perfect.
Obviously, I've written a separate review about the zoo experience.

Fantastic
The Australia Zoo was completely fantastic!! The driver was absolutely amazing, he gave us tons of tips on what to do in the zoo, which came very handy and was very nice overall! You first get picked up in a van in once of the pick up points and then you are driven to another point where you get into the croc express coach to get driven to the zoo. The main show was absolutely breathtaking and is so worth watching! The other shows happening during the day (every 30 mins) were super informative and fun to watch. All the animals are so beautiful and pictures may be taken with tons of them for a price. As you get 6 hrs once you get to the zoo, my recommendation is to take it completely easy as you do get tired specially if its hot. I do believe 6 hours are bit much as my partner and i saw everything in around 4 hours and were trying to kill time in the last two hours. Do take some water, hats and comfy shoes as there are tons to walk. Also, if you are buying food or any gifts from the zoo make sure you have enough money in your card as there is no reception in most parts of the zoo, and therefore cant transfer money into your main account if you dont have any money on it.
The experience was amazing and would 100% do it again.

Wow! That's a comprehensive review. Thank you Jules. We have created a brand new tour which is a half day at the zoo and a half day with lunch at the Buderim Ginger Factory. I tried it out when we were first designing the tour and loved the second half of the day eating and shopping and doing the factory tour, learning about bees, etc. I think for families who need to take it slow, six hours is good but if you wanna cram everything you can into your day, the "Taste the Sunshine Coast Tour" is a great choice.

Great place but you don’t need that much time!
Dec 2019 • Friends
We all agreed it was a “not to be missed” activity, but it should be AT LEAST an hour shorter. We were able to see everything at a very leisurely pace and still had to sit around an hour and a half just waiting until pick up time. 6 hours at such a compact park is simply too long. I would suggest a 2 pm departure from the park be considered. 4.5 hrs will allow you to see everything, but not waste time you could use exploring other venues.

A wonderful day out!
Dec 2019
My two young daughters and I recently visited the zoo (12/12/19) and were absolutely blown away by the beauty of the place and the friendly welcoming staff. Although we were not experts of course, we could see that the animals were all in good condition and seemed happy. It was also clear to see the level of respect held for the Irwin family by visitors being careful and respectful of the grounds.

The facilities were wonderful and I was able to fulfill a dream held by my youngest to get a Bindi shirt which I've emailed photos of. I was also given lovely feedback and had prompt replies to email inquiries I had. I now have a child who wants to work here when she's older. We will definitely be back and we really enjoyed our day.

Highly recommend.

Kind Regards,

Belinda
