What you can expect

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 7am in the morning, you'll embark on your journey aboard the Croc Express; a comfortable coach. Come around 10am 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 7pm. 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.

The zoo was amazing the coach journey was not- too long

Entry to the zoo and all the shows included which was excellent and a great day out. The coach however took 3 hours each way because of pick ups in Gold Coast and Brisbane which was far too long. It should take 1 hour and 45 minutes approximately to get straight from GC to the zoo.

This was a round trip bus tour to the Australia Zoo from the Gold Coast.

The zoo was absolutely phenomenal and I would highly recommend doing this tour! We got to the zoo at around 10am, and had to be back on the bus at 4pm. It was the perfect amount of time to see and do everything the zoo had to offer. My only issue with this tour is that the bus ride was quite long from the Gold Coast, as we had to stop in brisbane for a while and pick up more people. Other than the bus ride feeling quite lengthy, it was an awesome experience and you definitely should go!! :)

Overall a good day out at the zoo, however, the driver’s customer service skills were terrible.

The experience at the zoo was great. However, the customer service provided by the driver was well below average. He did not greet us in the morning or say anything on the 3 hour drive on the way or way back. As we exited the bus on the return we said thank you to the driver and he did not even acknowledge us. Customer service was disappointing at best.
