Australia Zoo, Beerwah

#1 of 24 in Zoos & Aquariums in Queensland
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • This is one of the best zoos I have been to and a must see. I love how interactive the zoo is and it was amazing to feed the kangaroos and touch/hold a koala. The zoo staff were very friendly and help...  more »

  • An unusual Zoo! The visitors are prompted immediately meet koalas and kangaroos and touch. The flight of birds and crocodile show in the large arena is breathtaking. Something expensive (59 AU$), but a very good trip. The bus 615 within easy reach.

  • Australia Zoo is an amazing place. We had heard about it and driven past a few times but spent a very enjoyable day this month. The zoo is large and well set out. It was clean, tidy and well laid out. The staff were great and very welcoming and helpful. We were surprised at the range of animals, birds and reptiles on show and the hosted segments were well done and well explained. Congratulations to the Australia Zoo team, we look forward to coming back.
  • Great, great , great experience. Have not been for years and so much has changed. The new Tigers and Africa section is amazing. Well done Australia Zoo. Great place for the families. The park keeps growing and your staff are all passionate to keep Steve's vision alive. Steve would be proud..! Well done guys!!
  • Worth the money. $69 adult. Full day out shows are a must do. Plan your day when you visit to ensure you see free flight birds. Croc feeding (outside show time) is a special treat if you are there for it. Talk to the amazing staff ( wildlife warriors). They have all the answers, if they don't they will radio to other experts. Catch the shuttle to save your legs. Food options aplenty. Cannot recommend highly enough. This iconic Irwin legacy is a national treasure and Sunny Coast Must Do!
  • Our day spent at the Australia Zoo was a highlight of our OZ trip. We enjoyed that the animals had big outside compounds. The kangaroo heaven with petting and feeding ($2 for roo food) was a highlight for us and our 9 month old son. Also being able to pet a koala was amazing and taking pictures of it with our own camera was a unique experience. We also enjoyed the warriors show. They also offered different animal photo shootings or encounters for extra money, we didn't do that. For one it was too expensive and secondly we didn't really think it was appropriate. If you enjoy visiting a zoo you will enjoy this one. Their main aim is to teach people how to deal with the fauna in Australia.
  • Literally the best zoo. $118 for 2 adults. We spent 5.5 hours here (10.30am - 4pm). The zoo keepers and everyone who works here are so friendly. Food & drink inside is pricey but that's standard & was expected. We travelled by public transport (2 trains & 1 bus) from Brisbane city centre. 100% worth it.
