Made famous by the Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, the Australia Zoo is home to over 1,200 native and exotic animals. Considered the most interactive wildlife adventure on the planet, here you can walk on the wild side by getting dingo kisses, hand-feeding giant tortoise and hanging out with a lemur.
Animal lovers will have the chance to get up close and personal with giraffes, rhinos, zebras and cheetahs at the African Savannah, while majestic tigers and red pandas await at the Southeast Asia exhibit. Don’t miss Bindi Island, where a three-storey treehouse gives you panoramic views of the entire zoo.

Located in Beerwah on Steve Irwin Way, the Australia Zoo is a 60-minute drive or a quick journey on the QR Citytrain from Brisbane. Coach transfer services are a popular way to get to the zoo, while the zoo’s Croc Express day tour uses air-conditioned coaches to pick up travellers from their hotel in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
