About Australia Zoo, Gold Coast

Australia Zoo is a 100-acre (40 ha) zoo located in the Australian state of Queensland on the Sunshine Coast near Beerwah/Glass House Mountains. It is a member of the Zoo and Aquarium Association (ZAA), and is owned by Terri Irwin, the widow of Steve Irwin, whose wildlife documentary series The Crocodile Hunter made the zoo a popular tourist attraction. The zoo is run by Director Wes Mannion. Australia Zoo was opened by Bob and Lyn Irwin on 3 June 1970 under the name Beerwah Reptile and Fauna Park. Their son Steve had helped his parents since childhood to care for crocodiles and reptiles and to maintain the growing number of animals in the zoo. In 1982 the park was renamed the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park and the area was doubled with the purchase of another 4 acres (1.6 ha). Steve and Terri changed the name of their now growing wildlife park to Australia Zoo. As filming generated extra funds, Steve and Terri put all money raised from filming and merchandise into conservation and building new exhibits. Australia Zoo won the Australian Tourism Awards for 2003–2004 in the category Major Tourist Attraction. In 2004, the Australian Animal Hospital was opened next to the zoo to help with animal care and rehabilitation. More recently, the zoo was a finalist in two categories for the 2010 Queensland Tourism Awards. Visitors will see a wide variety of birds, mammals, and reptiles, and can view crocodile feedings, hand-feed elephants, and have hands-on animal encounters.

Australia Zoo, Gold Coast Reviews - Write a Review

  • This was a great way to see many Australian and other animals in a place where it was clear that the welfare of the animals came first. Although a little cheesy at time, we had a fantastic day and really loved getting up close with some of Australia's most beloved creatures.

  • Fun to visit. A good place for all ages.

  • Australia Zoo is outstanding for their family feel and conservation work. All staff members are friendly and vibrant. The 'Crocosium' is a great way for visitors to see the Crocodiles and birds up close, and is extremely interactive. The upgrades to Bindi's Island, and Africa are not to be missed! Favourite animal from the Zoo would have to be the Lima's. Very playful and fun! Highly recommend visiting Australia Zoo if near the Sunshine Coast.
