Australia Zoo is open today, Monday 11th December! Woo-hoo!
From the Beerwah Reptile and Fauna Park to Australia Zoo, read all about the history of how the Irwin Family transformed a few acres of land into the biggest and best wildlife conservation facility in the entire world!
Stephen Robert Irwin was born to Lyn and Bob Irwin on 22 February, 1962, in upper Fern Tree Gully, Victoria. He grew up loving all wildlife, especially reptiles catching his first venomous snake at the tender age of six!
Born in "cougar country", Eugene, Oregon, in the United States, Terri Irwin was instilled with a love for wildlife and a desire to help animals from a very early age. A chance encounter with Steve would change their lives forever!
An enthusiastic wildlife conservationist and award-winning international celebrity, Bindi was only 3 years old when she made her television debut on The Crocodile Hunter Diaries.
Robert is a chip off the old block, and with his cheeky grin and natural curiosity, he loves nothing more than catching lizards and skinks, learning about wildlife and the Australian bush.
