Australia Zoo, Beerwah

Must see · Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • If all animals are not on display then reduce the rate of entry fee - we paid $59 which we have done previously but on this visit $40 would have been fair for the amount of missing animals that were.....  more »

  • Fantastic place. Great facilities like the water park for the kids. Exhibits were the best out of the zoo's we've been too. Animals were active and all looked really healthy and happy. Toilets etc all very clean. Food and drink outlets every where which was great for a coffee fix or two! Food was good too.
  • You can see a lot of animals which are not only domestic also exotic, but in here what I want to say is just koalas are definitely cute. Also in this zoo, you can touch the kangaroos and wallabies freely. Besides the zoo have various amazing shows such as Tiger show, Crocodile show, koala show. They are so unique and wonderful!! Must see it. And you will definitely have a fun.
  • The attractions here are brilliant. The arena is definitely a must see. I really liked the variety of animals they had. This includes tigers, lemurs, emus, Tasmania devils and last but not least crocodiles. The gift shop also offers great souvenirs. Steve made a good decision.
  • Awesome day out! Staff are lovely, easy to navigate the grounds, very clean, well manicured tropical gardens, animal enclosures are the best I've seen in the world, very interactive, awesome demonstrations, and so good to know money spent there goes towards animal conservation. Steve would be so happy with how the park has evolved. Forever missed and inspiring. A credit to Teri and the kids.
  • The shows were very interactive, presenters were very knowledgeable which made the shows very interesting. The Crocesium show was excellent with all the birds at the start which was followed by a first aid demo on how to deal with snake a bite, which was a great touch, and the crocodile demonstration. The animals looked very well looked after. The Africa section of the park was very well detailed and the animals had a lot of space. Probably the biggest amount of space in a zoo that I have seen. You can clearly see that a lot of money has been invested to create such a great animal sanctuary and I’d highly recommend anyone to make the time to visit the zoo.
