The Irwin family and Australia Zoo are very privileged to have to opportunity to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Since 1994, we have worked closely with charity organisations such as the Make-a-Wish and the Starlight Foundation to brighten the lives of these special children and their entire families.
Bringing a smile to the faces of children and families affected by illness is close to heart, and as important to the Irwin family and crew at the Zoo as saving wildlife. We value every child whose life is touched by the people and animals at Australia Zoo.
Currently, Australia Zoo works closely with the following wish-granting and support organisations:
- Make-A-Wish Foundation
- Starlight Foundation
- Children's Wish Foundation International
- Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Society
- Xavier Children's Support Network
- Genesis International Foundation
- Indiana Children's Wish Fund
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Mater Children's Hospital
- Brisbane Children's Hospital
Wish Tours include admission for the special child and their family, a photography journal of the day! The real action begins with amazing one-on-one animal encounter plus an elephant feed!
For Kid's who cant have their wish fulfilled due to Hopitalisation we are only happy to send a little bit of australia zoo to them in a care package.
