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.
The bus driver that we had was very informative on the wasy out, pointing out things of interest. The Zoo itself is absolutely amazing, it is a beautiful zoo to walk around with very friendly staff and the shows that we watched at different times around the zoo were great and very informative.
I could have gone back the next day and still enjoyed it as much as I did the first day. Will definately be going back for another visit.
Booking through Viator was very easy and everything fell into place, just had to ring and confirm when we got there and was picked up from our apartment and taken to where the bus left from, then the bus dropped us bac k at our apartment.
Well organised by viator. Zoo is a must do. Wear sensible shoes as lots of walking. Croc show made the day. Take plenty of money for photos with cheater, koala etc would recommend
We enjoyed our day at the zoo. If you are in the area, you really should visit this zoo. The Cros Express Coach made it easy to get there. We would highly recommend this trip.
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.
