Fodor's Review

Made famous by the late Steve Irwin, Australia Zoo features all manner of Australian animals: koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, dingos, Tasmanian devils, snakes, and lizards—and, naturally, crocodiles. There are also otters, lemurs, tigers, red pandas, and a giant rainforest aviary. Daily shows feature crocs, birds of prey, koalas and more. There are also plenty of extras on offer that let you get up close and personal with the residents, including petting and hand-feeding red pandas (A$80), or getting cozy with cheetahs ($150) and rhinos ($80). Get around the park on foot or try the free, hop-on, hop-off mini-trains. Private guided tours are also available. A courtesy bus shuttles visitors to and from Beerwah station and the Sunshine Coast.
