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 .

  • One of the best experiences of my life. I've always been a huge fan of Steve Irwin and being able to step foot in the zoo that he started was a dream come true. The grounds were immaculate and the ani...  more »

  • We’ve been to many Zoos or animal parks but none beat this in terms of environmental enrichment and care for the animals as this one. The keepers talk about the animals in their care like a parent wou...  more »

  • What a cool zoo :-). You can actually get to touch animals including koalas without having to go into some special exhibit - they get carried around in the zoo. Also got to see Robert, Bindi and Terri Irwin. That was a nice surprise! Definitely recommend getting the annual pass. I've taken my son twice already and he still loves it. The park is definitely big enough for at least two visits, if not 3. I recommend going to the zoo Hospital on the opposite side of the car park. There you can see different veterinarians helping Creatures Great and Small :-).
  • We really loved this zoo. Have been to many zoos but the wildlife show was the best we have ever seen! You can really feel Steve’s legacy and it’s amazing to see how healthy and well taken care of the animals are and to see their exhibits are so spacious and clean. There are heaps of staff working around the park and they are all super friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend everyone to visit this amazing zoo!
  • Fantastic zoo, it looks pretty nice, everything is in good condition. Animals have beautiful and big places. There are a lot of (paid) animal encounters, but the keepers bring out a lot of animals out to the public, where you can have a photo with them for free. We tried to book for a koala encounter, but it was sold out for the day. But in the zoo we could even touch koalas a few times when we were there, and made some cool pictures with them, all for free!
  • We loved our visit!! Me and hubby visited for the first time on the weekend. The staff were so friendly. Place was tidy. We had lunch at the cafe and ordered chicken wrap and beef wrap. They were very filling and enjoyable. The zoo is very well set up and we can not wait to bring our kids here.
  • Hands down the best zoo I have ever been to. The only negative is that it's so big - you will need to get here first thing in the morning if you want to experience all that is here to offer. The layout is brilliantly designed by world geography - with Africa being the most unique. I've never even heard of a handful of the species here. All the animals seem to be cared for meticulously as you can feel how friendly the staff are to them. There is also a surprising selection of healthy food options - with good taste as well. Will definitely be back.
