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 .

  • Best zoo I've ever been to! The staff were super friendly and helpful, the animals were beautiful and deeply loved by the zoo staff. Huge open enclosures, which was lovely to see. Amazing to visit the zoo of Steve Irwin, someone who influenced my childhood massively. Came on my visit from the UK. Amazing place to spend time. Thank you for a great day out
  • A fantastic family day out at The Steve Irwin home of animals! The shows were excellent and midday show, not to be missed. It was great to see all the animals. Nice to have a complimentary bus that runs all day. There is also an excellent children's play area with huge water park fun and slide to take swimmers in case! Enjoy.
  • Amazing staff, all super helpful and really interactive with kids. Very happy and healthy animals, compared with other zoos. Beautiful animal experiences and encounters, where you can get up and close. Very clean, tidy and well maintained. Well worth the trip and will be returning! Thanks for the amazing experience and memories
  • Very busy, especially on new years day, but well worth it. I love this place and will be bringing my family back up time and time again. As a young man I used to watch Steve in absolute awe back in the UK, now I get to go to the place he love and cherished so much. I'm so proud of the young children to have grown up to take on the responsibility and morals of their family and father. It's great to see. The food at Crikey was fantastic too, lots to pick and choose from.
  • Love it! Love it! Love it! I'd highly recommend you always make time to visit Australia Zoo. Make a day of it & use any of their excellent cafes/restaurant too, as you'll need a full day or more as there's so much to see & do, plus also watching the many shows & demonstrations. Get your photo taken with a koala, a snake or many more as well. A great really day out!!
