It was an awesome experience visiting Australia Zoo

It was an awesome experience visiting Australia Zoo, was a super hot day but we still had fun. The show in the Crocoseum was informative & exciting and the most important part of the day. The free shuttle is a great help and saves some time walking. It took us the whole day to see everything in the zoo.

Australia Zoo is huge and provides plenty of space for animals

Australia Zoo is huge and provides plenty of space for animals. It is very accessible by train and free shuttle from Beerwah station. The ticket of Experience Oz is great as you do not need to queue up at the entrance to purchase tickets. Everything's included except the animal hospital (which is very small and in my view does not worth a visit).
