Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Sunshine Coast / Beerwah / Australia Zoo
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.

Half of the enclosure we’re closed. The main show was crap. So very disappointing. Cashier tried overcharging us. Not much to see with the remaining enclosures small. Have been to Hawleys Croix farm..... more

The best zoo we have ever been to, their staff are accommodating and lovely. The zoo is stunning. Native flora fauna everywhere. A lot of attractions are interactive and you get a real hands on experience. Remember to pack sunscreen and wear comfortable shoes. Well worth the visit. We were there for over 6 hours and did almost 20,000 steps.
This place never disappoints. Great friendly staff with lots to see. Be prepared to spend the whole day here. Tip: get your lunch early to avoid the queues especially if you intend seeing the crocodile show and want to get good seats. Fantastic water playground for kids to play in and free animal displays. Paid extra to see the wildlife hospital and was lucky to see several procedures taking place.
