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 .

  • If you would like to visit this zoo, you need plenty of time. The course is beautifully maintained. The animals are very well kept. It is possible to buy something to drink or something small to eat again and again. Very suitable for families with children. It has also repeatedly shaded areas, with the possibility to have a picnic only ticket prices are not cheap, but the Zoo is always worth the money. For old people you are not walking, not necessarily suited. The Park is very extensive. Also at moist heat, the visit can be exhausting. A visit should not miss it.

  • We took kids 4 and 1 years old to check out the animas at this famous zoo. There was so much to see spread out over quite a large area. The main arena croc show was pretty over the top and cheesy but ...  more »
  • I’m going to be honest and say I’m not a fan of zoos and went along because kids have grown up loving Steve and his adventures... but I was really blown away with the passion and commitment for conser...  more »

  • Very refreshing zoo, doing an amazing job rehabilitating native wildlife. An excellent view into some of Australia's native fauna and flora. With a few species from around the globe to keep things interesting. Would recommend to anyone visiting Brisbane. The rescue hospital is particular is very interesting, providing a first hand perspective as to why the zoo was founded. Don't miss the midday show either.
  • This is easily the best zoo I have visited and I have visited a few. It easily beats the San Diego Zoo. You can feel Steve’s spirit living in the animals and on the zoo grounds. It is bittersweet testament to what he loved and lived for. Well done to the Australia Zoo team and Irwin family. Steve would have so proud. Will definitely visit again.
  • This is the most amazing place we visited on our trip to Australia! I definitely recommend going there if you have the opportunity. You can reserve an animal encounter through their website. We did a few and it was amazing! Also I recommend visiting some of the zoo keepers talks and the show they do! Awesome place! Made me so happy!
  • Quite simply the best zoo or animal park I have been to. If you’re in Australia you must include this as part of your stay. Make sure you plan in the 1200 show in the Crocosium and the feeding of the other crocodiles. Really any show they offer should be planned in. Even the tiger show was world class. Take a stroll through the Kangaroo and Koala enclosures. Yep that’s right through the enclosure. Not only will this be the highlight of your trip but it will be enjoyed by the whole family. The family oriented nature of the owner plays out throughout the park.
  • Fantastic zoo! Not just crocodiles, it has lots of different animals all in big nature like enclosures. Quite a lot of walking to see all the zoo so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Also if possible come from the north when driving in as the right turn in to the zoo gets very busy and traffic backs up for ages. Takes about 10 minutes to turn right.
