MEET OUR AMAZING ANIMALS

Here at Australia Zoo we just love animals - from the tiniest lizard to the biggest elephant! Australia Zoo is a great environment for our animals - it provides not only a haven for our collection of over one hundred different species including Steve's favourites the Crocodile, Tiger and Cheetah, but is also a great platform for those same animals to act as ambassadors for their cousins in the wild, giving Australia Zoo the ability to educate the world about animal conservation and increase the chances of protecting all wildlife.
