Tour Details

Home of the Crocodile Hunter and the Australia Zoo, the Sunshine Coast is a center for tourism and a must-do day trip while staying in Brisbane. You've probably seen this beautiful and unspoiled area in documentaries by Steve and Terri Irwin. Now it's your chance to experience this gorgeous area for yourself.

On this tour to the Australia Zoo, you'll ride by the Glasshouse Mountains, pine forests, and pineapple plantations. The mountains consist of a flat plain speckled with the cores of extinct volcanoes that formed 27 million years ago. You'll then enter the Australia Zoo, where you can spend a day among Australia's unique wildlife.

The Australia Zoo, made famous by Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, is more than just a zoo. It's a wildlife "theme park," comprised of a team of conservations working to give you an original experience. With over 6 hours inside the zoo, you will have ample time to interact with Asian elephants, native birds, and Sumatran tigers. Be sure to watch the crocodile feeing demonstration and the snake handler's show. In between shows and exhibits, watch for handlers walking animals through the park, giving you the opportunity to get a close-up look at these magnificent creatures.

On this Austalia Zoo tour, you'll also get reserved seating at the Crocoseum. Steve Irwin's wish was to educate the public and show them how crocodiles behave in the wild. Here, you can see crocodiles in clear water ponds and watch them interact. Come face to face with wild animals as you venture on this amazing tour of the Australia Zoo.
