The Crocoseum Boutique may be next to all of the action, and the Australiana Shop is fair dinkum Aussie, but wait until you meet the team at the Croc Lair... they're unreal! They have got all the information you need throughout the day, and are happy to help in any way they can.
Fun and educational, the Croc Lair has a huge range of books for all ages - activity books, photographic books and informative books about the animals at Australia Zoo and much, much more. The documentary series of Steve's wild adventures are available on DVD and video, and the little ones can sing along with the Wiggles as they go on a Wiggly Safari with Steve, Terri and Bindi.
Home of the Crocodile Hunter and home of your very own Steve charm, the Croc Lair has a great range of gold plated and silver charms. There are koalas, kangaroos, and moving crocodiles as well!
The Croc Lair stocks loads of Australia Zoo souvenirs. We have mugs, postcards, plates, macadamia nuts, drink bottles, drink coolers and much, much more.
