We travel from the Gold Coast or Brisbane through the Glasshouse Mountains scenic drive to the home of Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter – Australia Zoo. Located less than an hour north of Brisbane on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Australia Zoo is a team of passionate conservationists working around-the-clock to deliver an animal experience like no other.
Steve and Terri Irwin’s vision has always been to make Australia Zoo the biggest and best wildlife conservation facility on the planet, and there is no other zoo like Australia Zoo! Enjoy FREE daily wildlife shows including watching a saltwater crocodile strike from the water’s edge; discover the beauty of majestic tigers in their Tiger Temple, and beautiful giraffe, rhino and zebra interact as they would in the wild on the African Savanna.
Watch an impressive Andean Condor fly in the Crocoseum, and explore the newest addition, Bindi’s Island – an incredible three-story treehouse and wildlife haven including ring-tailed lemurs, Aldabran tortoises, macaws and more. Finish your day by visiting the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, the busiest wildlife hospital in the world that has treated over 56,000 native Australian animals in its ten year history
