Crikey! It's as WILD AS LIFE GETS at Australia Zoo's open-range exhibit - Africa, where you can see the only multi species exhibit in Queensland.
Step on board the FREE Africa Safari Shuttle to experience the only Giraffe and Zebra in Queensland and keep your eyes peeled for our growing Rhino herd!
Steve's dream was to build an African Safari Park, where animals roam free in open plains and state of the art walk-through enclosures; where the public can watch these animals interact as they would in the wild; and where people can have their own unique experiences with these wonderful animals.
You can see one of our Giraffe as they graze the Savannah and use their amazing blue tongues pull leaves from the trees. Be mesmerised as they gracefully explore Africa right in front of your eyes!
Taking visitors on a journey to the African Savannah of Australia Zoo, we will showcase the only active breeding group of Rhinos in Queensland - our first calf was born here in April 2012 - in a replica of the exotic animals' natural habitat - all part of the African experience.
Africa is right here in your own back yard. So come on - go WILD with us!

Meet our African Animals
Ceratotherium simum simum
The Southern White Rhino is the second largest land mammal. They are grazers, found on the grassy savannahs of Southern Africa.
Zebras are African equids best known for their distinctive black and white stripes which come in different patterns unique to each individual.
Giraffes are the tallest land animal in existence. Males reach heights of 5.5 meters (18 ft) and weigh up to 1900kg.
Cheetah are not classed as 'big cats'. Big cats have the ability to roar - cheetahs have instead retained the ability to purr, just like your domestic cat at home.
