What you can expect
See the wonders of the Australia Zoo and the Australia's splendid Sunshine Coast all in one day on this tour. Spend time exploring the educational and interactive exhibits of the zoo, then visit the quaint village of Montville before walking the astounding rainforests of Mary Cairncross Reserve.
Get picked up in the morning and transfer from Brisbane to the Australia Zoo. Made famous by crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, the zoo features an abundance of immersive and educational exhibits spread over 100 acres (40 ha) of land. Take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hand-feed kangaroos, go on an African safari, and learn all about crocodiles in clear-water ponds. After spending several exciting hours at the zoo, continue on to Montville, a quaint town in the Sunshine Coast hinterlands. Stroll through the streets, enjoying a quiet atmosphere and browsing speciality shops, art galleries, and local boutiques.
In the afternoon, head to Mary Cairncross Reserve. A guide joins you to lead you on a beautiful walk through the reserve's subtropical rainforests. Witness flourishing examples of flora, including the Australian red cedar, and get the chance to spot native wildlife like the wompoo fruit-dove and brown cuckoo-dove. Cap your adventure off with breath-taking, panoramic views of the Glass House Mountains before catching a ride back to Brisbane.
