Come see the zoo The Crocodile Hunter helped build. Steve Irwin's parents, Bob and Lyn, started Australia Zoo as a reptile park. Money that Steve and his wife Terri raised from The Crocodile Hunter transformed the park into the pristine, 40 hectare (100 acre) wildlife conservation center it is today. Head to the Crocomuseum for an introduction to massive, sharp-toothed crocodiles. Feed kangaroos at Roo Heaven. Pet koala bears at Pat A Koala. You might even see a vet in action at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital.

  • Zoo was fantastic, so much to see we ran out of time. Wish they had a 2 day pass. Staff so helpful. Able to pat koala without paying. Photos taken of kids with various animals and they can have proof ...  read more »
  • The amount of local animals that has offers a unequalled experience. With all the moorings that have, such as the shows with the crocodiles, all of them famous for having been in several films. And a very good place to be with family and have an unforgettable day. An experience to repeat.

  • Now this is a zoo! Wide open spacious and diverse zoo, allowing you to have a sense of adventure while visiting different areas of the vast habitat. You should allow a few hours to indulge and immerse yourself in the awesome work that the Irwin family and legacy offer every lucky patron. Great job Steve RIP.
  • I can not believe some of the petty comments I'm reading. This clearly is a beautiful more intimate zoo where the staff actually takes care of the animals. "Not enough animals", I don't think some people realize how expensive exotic animals are and until you're willing to donate to the zoo or buy them animals than you shouldn't judge. There's so much more to this conservation than having every animal you want, do your research before going somewhere. I would laugh at some of these ridiculous complaints too if I was them. Great zoo, great staff, will be back!
  • What more can you ask for. You need to go to Australia Zoo. Every experience you encounter is one you will never forget. You can get up close to the roos, wallabies, koalas and so many other iconic animals of Australia. I recommend paying the extra for the photos with the koalas. The staff are all so super helpful around the park. The animals are so well looked after here and you can see it. Amazing place and amazing vibes. Steve's legacy lives on.
  • An exhausting and very rewarding day out for people of all ages. There are fascinating displays and all the creatures you could possibly think of. You can touch many of the animals and even feed the kangaroos. The bird display in the arena is incredible as is the tiger display. All the animals look healthy and happy. We were lucky enough to see a joey being cared for in the hospital within the zoo too.
  • Great place to spend an afternoon or whole day. Extensive habitats and plenty of native animals. We didn't spend much time in the african animal area because these can be seen in so many other zoos. A bit exy, but feels like a good place to support with our entry fee. Worth a trip if you're in the Brissy area.
