Crikey, the Australia Zoo is fantastic! Made famous by the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin and his family, the zoo concentrates on animals from Australia but does have some exhibits from around the world. I can say with confidence that this is a must visit for anyone interested in all the uniquely Aussie wildlife. You can hold and pet koalas! You can pet and roam freely amongst kangaroos! We have been to zoos with much larger collections and nicer facilities, but none approach the interaction you have with the animals. The entire family agreed this was clearly the highlight of our trip so far.
Our experience was made even more special because we got to spend it with one of my wife’s childhood friends and her family, fantastic folks who have lived in Oz on and off for several years. They just happened to be on holiday in Sunshine Coast this week.
