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.

    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.

    Best Place I have ever been to. Staff are so warm and friendly and could not take more time to educate and inform you of the animals. We had the most enjoyable experience strolling around and coming across so many different types of animals just casually walking by with a staff member. We simply cannot wait to return ! It's rare and exciting to see so many animals not in cages and enclosed. Absolutely FANTASTIC ! We paid a little more to see DJ the Rhino ! AWESOME ! Girls / Keepers were so knowledgeable and friendly and super cool. I have told all my friends.......... starting to plan for our return !

    This is the best zoo I have ever been to. Plenty of friendly staff, the grounds are huge and everything is carefully looked after. Our kids went on the zookeeper for a day experience and were very well looked after. I only wish I lived closer so I could go back again. Great Australian gem.

    One of the best sites to visit in Queensland and well worth the drive north from Brisbane. This is honestly one of the best zoo's I have ever visited, and is focused on ethical, responsible rehabilitation and interaction with Australian wildlife. You get a lot for your initial entrance fee (animal exhibits and hourly shows) and even more if you spring for one of the animal encounters. I have done quite a few of the optional encounters and highly recommend the Echidna wildlife encounter. The Tiger show is also not to be missed - ask staff about the time when you get into the park

    Excellent experience for international or Australian tourists. Zoo has several "animal experiences" where you can feed and get close to animals like wombats, koalas or red pandas. These cost extra of course and should be booked at least 4 weeks in advance. However, kangaroo enclosures are large open areas and kangaroos can be pet and fed with zoo admission. The crocodile show is excellent. Note the zoo has much more than just Australian animals (i.e. red panda & tiger). All the animals seem healthy and well cared for. Very nice zoo.

    Australia Zoo is commonly known as the best Zoo in Australia and after I went with my family I completely agree. The Zoo itself has everything a family would need including easy access for less able people. You don't walk to far with drink machines and small snack outlets. Unlike Zoo's found in Cities, Australia Zoo is extremely clean and easy to navigate... awesome day out. All the staff were brilliant and very helpful. The shows during the day were very entertaining and informative. Would highly recommend. We miss you Steve.
