The legacy of the late crocodile-hunter, Steve Irwin, continues at Australia Zoo, where you can cuddle a koala, hand-feed an elephant and take a walk with a Sumatran tiger.
The zoo is managed by Irwin’s family, wife Terri and children Bindi and Robert, and the Irwin family personality is a major part of the zoo's continuing attraction for visitors.
Conservation is key at Australia Zoo, with endangered species breeding programs, field study and habitat preservation. The amazing animals you’ll see at Australia Zoo include Australian natives like wombats and Tasmanian devils, plus big cats, giraffes, otters and lemurs. A highlight is the daily handfeeding of elephants, kangaroos and baby farmyard animals.
Australia Zoo is in Beerwah, 60 km (37 miles) north of Brisbane, an hour's drive along the Bruce Highway.
A courtesy bus runs here from Noosa and Caloundra, and the bus also meets trains arriving from Brisbane at Beerwah train station.
