Meet our new arrivals

Spring is in the air and with spring comes new arrivals! Come and see our new additions to the Australia Zoo family.

Our newest arrival is a baby girl giraffe born on the 14th August. She will be venturing out over the school holiday's so keep an eye out for her when you are visiting Africa.

At koala mums and bubs you can catch a glimpse of our adorable koala joeys. They have grown up over the last few months and you can now see them either snuggling up to mum, playing in the branches or munching on gum leaves.

In Roo Heaven you may see a pleasant surprise hopping by! Our kangaroos have joeys! Keep an eye out, you could find them popping out of mums pouch to say hello.

Robert’s treasure hunt

Robert will take you on a mission to discover Australia Zoo's water loving animals!

Explore the Zoo while you learn some interesting facts about our amazing animals to unlock your treasure.

All kids receive a prize for completing the hunt!

The fun doesn’t stop there....

Kick off the school holidays by exploring the Zoo as your favourite animal with free face painting on weekends from 9:00am-11:00am. You get to be part of the wildlife for a day!

Make sure you stop by Bindi's Pony Trails to saddle up and take our cheeky ponies for a ride between 11:00am - 3:00pm every day (closed for lunch 12:00pm - 12:45pm) - they would love to meet you. Then test your luck with our colouring competition to win awesome Australia Zoo goodies!

School's out and the real fun is just beginning at Australia Zoo!
