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.

  • Incredible experience, throughout the whole zoo. Especially the cuddly koalas and kangaroos. They eat from your hands. The zoo is very clean and the staff are very helpful

  • The day was great from start to finish. The animals were great as I had hoped but it was better than that as the staff were truly invested in the well being of the animals. I was very surprised with the food for the humans as well. I am a bit of a problem being gluten and lactose intolerant but was able to get a great Caesar chicken salad my wife had a beef wrap both were a good size serving and for a very reasonable price. The footy ovals should check it out and learn how not to gouge the public. To do it properly it will take you most of the day.
  • Such an amazing place to visit, especially having always been a big fan of Steve Irwin. It's a beautiful zoo, so well maintained and a great variety of encounters to choose from. Entry is a bit pricey though, especially with a larger family and all children above 14 requires an adult ticket.
  • Fantastic zoo. Always so fun to visit with the kids. Animals well looked after, lots of different areas to explore. Zoo maintained well. They have different experiences for you to do if you would like, holding snack, koala etc. The croc show is always amazing, birds are so beautiful. We missed the cheetah walking around unfortunately. Easy drive from Brisbane, hour and a half. Worth the drive. Would recommend everyone of all ages go visit the team at Australia zoo.
  • Oh my lord what an amazing experience 😁 what a credit this zoo is to Steve Irwin and his family. I couldn't fault it! There were free playgrounds for the children, clean toilets throughout and places to buy food. Merchandise stores also. The show at the Crocoseum and the Tiger enclosure were amazing. All the animals were easily visible and obviously comfortable and well cared for in their enclosures. Highly recommend the Zoo for young and old 😊👍
  • Amazing from start to finish ! The staff were so helpful even before our visit so thank you to the girls in guest services were! Special shout out to the photographers we had the pleasure of sharing our encounter with you captured some amazing moments and put us at ease. Every keeper/handler we met were so educational and informative, they displayed passion and also great customer service. We saw nothing but happy, healthy, stimulated animals! We were lucky enough to do a few animal encounters which were experiences we will never forget. I highly recommend you do the zoo over 2 days (we did) as it is huge and it allows you to really take it all in. Every animal enclosure was clean and spoiled and well taken care of. This zoo was amazing and I highly recommend it. Hope to visit it again in the future. You guys are doing great work
