Opened to the public at the end of 2021, and two years after arriving at Australia Zoo, our herd of Sumatran elephants have moved into their expansive new home, Elephantasia!
Wati, Widya, Christine and Raflesia are truly a part of our family, and we are so excited that their state-of-the-art habitat is now open for guests to experience.
With less than 2,500 Sumatran elephants remaining in the wild, we are proud to be continuing Steve’s mission to protect these animals for future generations.
In 2015, Australia Zoo contributed significant funds to fulfil Steve’s dream to construct an elephant hospital in Sumatra. In the wild, elephants often fall victim to snares or are injured from human-elephant conflict, so a hospital of this nature is critically important for their rehabilitation and care.
You can visit Elephantasia and see our Sumatran elephants between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm daily. Join us at our Elephants LIVE Conservation show at midday, and be sure to visit our Elephantasia Gift Shop where all purchases go towards supporting our elephant conservation program.
