Australia Zoo

Home to Steve Irwin, Crocodile Hunter himself, Australia Zoo presents a new zoological delight at every turn. Come face to face with fierce lions and tigers, some unique Australian natives and nature’s own gentle giants the elephants.

What’s more, the zoo is proud of its passions for habitat conservation and wildlife preservation, building on the legacy that Steve Irwin left behind. Now that’s something to get excited about!

Sea Life Aquarium

They say that more than 95 percent of the world’s oceans remain unexplored - there is a whole lot we don’t know about the ocean’s depths and life on the seafloor. At Sea Life Aquarium though, you can get a glimpse of what it’s like below the surface.

Meet some of the most dazzling fish, ferocious sharks and friendly seals, among other ocean friends. You could spend all day at the aquarium exploring Shipwreck Shores, Jellyfish Kingdom and the Coastal Wreck - each area housing a magnificent array of underwater critters that will take your breath away.

Wildlife HQ

If you truly like to get up close and personal with your animals, how about arranging a cuddle with a koala or a monkey? At Wildlife HQ, half an hour from the city centre, you can book a date with some of these gentle creatures and get to know them at close quarters. You’ll be able to view heaps of Aussie favourites including Tasmanian devils, wombats, kangaroos and dingoes.
