Travel to and explore one of Australia's most iconic zoos; Australia Zoo, with this awesome transfer and entry package from the Gold Coast. Departing the Gold Coast at 7:30am in the morning, you'll embark on your journey aboard the Croc Express; a comfortable coach. Come around 10:15am you'll be pulling up to the front gates of this spectacular zoo and preparing to begin your animal adventure amongst the native wildlife.

Once in the park you are free to roam around and explore all of the exhibits, displays and shows on your own. You can see the Zoo's Sumatran and Bengal Tigers at Tiger Temple, watch the giraffes graze in the African exhibit and of course, see some of Australia's most famous animals including koalas, kangaroos, dingoes and of course, what the zoo is known for, crocodiles. The crocodile feeding shows and displays are a definite must-see and you might be lucky enough to see Bob, Bindi or Terry Irwin performing the show themselves.

The transfer will depart the zoo at 4pm in the afternoon, giving you more than enough time to explore the entire zoo and see and do all that you had planned to. The bus will return to the Gold Coast and drop customers off at their respective hotels around 6:30pm. Though a long day, this journey is both enjoyable and convenient, especially if you're visiting the Gold Coast and don't have a way to travel around the region. Book your transfer and entry to Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast from the Gold Coast online today!

Abby Shapiro 1 year ago On Saturday November 4 I went on the zoo excursion (transportation + admission) from the Gold Coast. I can’t remember the driver’s name but he was absolutely wonderful and had lots of info for us! He made the rides there and back very pleasant.
Zoo was fun
joshua patten 4 weeks ago

Zoo was fun, but the bus trip to Brisbane from surfers paradise was the worst bus I've been on in my life, tiny, no room and was stinking hot. It was waiting around for a ridiculous amount of time in the heat so overall a very poor experience and service.

Great experience
Erynne Manners 4 months ago

Great experience, the bus was on time and the ride was comfortable. The driver was very informative and provided quality commentary on the way. The zoo is a great experience, lots to do and see and you get plenty of time to do it all in one day. The midday croc show was entertaining and we arrived in time for the otter show in the morning which was a highlight.

Australia Zoo was amazing
Lisa Rodway 6 months ago

Australia Zoo was amazing! Got to see the Irwin family do their thing. The bus ride was disappointing. Arriving at 10.30 and leaving at 3.30 we had to rush and the driver was rude. Having to change buses in Brisbane and not having it explained to where we go was really confusing. We had a great day in all but for the late arrival we missed shows we would have liked to see.

Went to Australia Zoo
Janet Zarebski 10 months ago

Went to Australia Zoo. Easy pick up from the hotel. The drive was two and a half hours and being a Diabetic when I need to pee I need to pee. Over halfway, I needed the bathroom, after trying to hold it for about 45 min my husband asked the driver if he could pull in to one of the services on the route. The driver very abruptly said 'No way! Not in this traffic!' My husband had explained I was diabetic. I almost wet on the chairs on the bus and have never experienced such pain having to hold it until we came to the next pick up destination which took a further hour or more to get to. This was an awful experience which brought me to tears. I did love the animals and experience of holding a koala bear and feeding the kangaroos apart from the downpour of rain which did not stop us having a nice time.

Great tour

Although I was disappointed we did not go on the Croc Express Coach we thoroughly enjoyed our day out and would highly recommend this trip to anyone

Although I was disappointed we did not go on the Croc Express Coach we thoroughly enjoyed our day out and would highly recommend this trip to anyone. The driver was excellent as he not only got us safely there and back he gave us lots of information about Australia Zoo to help us make the maximum of our time at Australia Zoo. Five hours at the Zoo goes very fast.

Great day
Julie Hoffmann 1 year ago

Great day. The pick up and drop off rides made my day relaxing because I didn't have to worry about traffic. The driver's were friendly. Australia Zoo was fantastic, especially the Wildlife Warriors Show and the croc feeding show!

We had a great but super wet day at Australia Zoo
Fiona Brink 2 years ago

We had a great but super wet day at Australia Zoo. Was great because the animals were active as wet. But the rain did affect the enjoyment s bit. So much to see and do. food expensive as much as other places. The highlight of the day was noon croc show.
