Australia Zoo, Beerwah

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. Arrange to visit Australia Zoo and other attractions in Beerwah using our Beerwah day trip site .

  • We knew we'd enjoy the zoo after years of Steve Irwin on TV. This exceeded our expectations all the way around. As a zoo, it's very good -- open exhibit areas for the animals, plenty of variety, and a...  more »
  • I wasn’t really looking forward to our day out at the zoo as I’m pretty much scared of all animals but it was something my friends really wanted to do. Turns out I actually loved it! Loads of animals ...  more »

  • I can't believe it's taken me so long to finally visit Australia Zoo! My family and I had a great day and would highly recommend the zoo to all who are interested. The grounds are expansive so comfortable walking shoes and a stroller for younger kids is a must. We decided to catch the shuttle out to the Africa exhibit and wander back towards the crocoseum for the animals feeding show at 1230. This allowed us ample time to look at all the exhibits and even feed the kangaroos and wallabies. Food options at the park are much better than other theme parks with a range of healthier options available. Will definitely be back again, we even bought annual passes.
  • If you're visiting south east Queensland's Sunshine Coast, Australia Zoo is a place you cannot miss. The best place to see and experience Australian wildlife in their natural habitat. Its fantastic fun for toddlers and young children to learn about our wild animals up close with personal animal encounters hosted by a zoo keeper. Hold a Koala or Crocodile and have your photo taken to show your friends and family. Highly recommend seeing many of the animal attractions feeding expose. I've travelled the world visiting the most famous Zoos on offer, Australia Zoo is up there with the best. Its large scale natural habitat enclosures are equal or better than the rest. You can get up close and feed and pet kangaroos or a Koala. Australia Zoo is the best value for money tourist attraction in Queensland, maybe Australia. Don't miss it!
  • Absolutely amazing experience. Easily the best zoo I have visited. On the day I visited it was for my 3 year old daughter's birthday (turning 4 in a couple of days) and the staff made the whole day so special for her. The staff were all so helpful and friendly and we loved how you could get close to some of the animals to pat and feed them. Highly recommended.
  • Had a great time at the Zoo. The displays and main show were awesome. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was not as many animals to pat as I was expecting. Mostly just Kangaroos and the odd lizard or bird. Lots to look at though and all very active. All in all it was an awesome experience. Allow a whole day to see everything and to get the most out of it.
  • WHAT A GREAT PLACE!!! I would probably avoid it on the school holidays as it would be an extremely popular place. I like the way how all the animals were not caged up they were in their own pens but felt very safe. The zookeepers were amazing very friendly great to just go and have a chat with. Also liked the ride around the park it was interesting with them talking about the animals and the history of Australia Zoo
