Every day in the Crocoseum we are taking on the world's conservation issues and protecting the animal kingdom, and we want you to join our army of Wildlife Warriors

- Roving Wildlife - By jingo! Meet some of our roving animals throughout the Zoo, like our baby alligators, talking cockatoos and wombats!
- Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital - Check out the state-of-the-art hospital, Australia's busiest wildlife hospital! Watch the team of vets save out precious wildlife
- Tigers - Wow! Visit the Tiger Temple, home to our maginificent Sumatran tigers, and catch a glimpse of them in action
- Croc School - Learn all about Steve's croc research and his passion for these amazing reptiles
- Africa - Explore the wide open plains of the African savannah and see our rhino, giraffe and zebra. You may even see our cheetah as they walk by!
- Hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Queensland's sun can be quite fierce, even during winter, so remember to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen.
- Rain Poncho. Queensland weather can often be unpredictable so it is advisable to bring a poncho or rain jacket to the Zoo.
- Water. A day at the Zoo can be very thirsty work, so make sure that you bring a water bottle with you. There are water fountains around the Zoo so that you can refill your bottle. We also sell bottled water at our foodcourt, kiosks, diner and beverage stands throughout the grounds.
- Snacks/Food. Feel free to bring your own food and snacks to Australia Zoo. There are plenty of nice shady areas to enjoy a picnic lunch, so bring a blanket and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Or you can always take a seat in our Feeding Frenzy food court and enjoy all the goodies and drinks from our many beverage stands and kiosks.
- Camera. There will be plenty of fantastic photo opportunities during your visit to Australia Zoo, so make sure you bring your camera. Don't forget to also bring extra film/memory cards and batteries so that you don't miss out on any of the action. We also have our very own Photo Lab here at Australia Zoo, where you can purchase film, memory cards, plus digital and disposable cameras. During your day you may get snapped by one of our professional photographers, these photos are available for purchase from the Photo Lab.
- Comfortable clothes and shoes. There is a lot to see and do at Australia Zoo and there will be plenty of walking involved, so make sure you wear comfortable clothes and sensible shoes. You may also want to bring a jumper as the afternoons can get quite cool, especially during the winter months.
- Watch. There are stacks of wildlife shows and hand-feeding opportunities on throughout the day, so bring a watch so you don't miss any of the action.
- Cash. Even though we have ATMs and EFTPOS facilities, it is still advisable to bring some cash with you. Our kiosks only accept cash, as does the Kids Zoo, where you can purchase animal food.
- Domestic Animals. Australia Zoo does not allow domestic animals onto its premises, so please ensure that you leave your pets at home.
- Alcohol. Australia Zoo is an alcohol-free zone, so please do not bring any alcohol into the Zoo.
- Your own animal food. Please feed our wildlife the correct food and do not bring your own food. Animal food is available from the Kids Zoo and Kids Shop.
Enjoy your day at Australia Zoo!
