Why is Australia Zoo so expensive?
Think about having to house and feed and care for all of those animals. Think about the shows that are created and displayed and all the staffing requirements. Think about the good work the team at Australia Zoo beyond the zoo itself. Think about your zoo pass price as a small contribution to the care they provide for for the animals and for our planet. Then think about the amazing time you will have creating memories with your family. You might not do it multiple times a year, but it is certainly worth a visit – people travel from across the world to visit, so shouldn’t you pop up the motorway?
History of Australia Zoo
Australia Zoo is a massive 100-acre zoo located in Queensland on the Sunshine Coast near Beerwah/Glass House Mountains.
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. 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.
