Australia Zoo Crocodile Hunter – When visiting Brisbane be sure to take a day trip to visit the great Australian Zoo that was run by famed Australian Steve Irwin, otherwise known as the Crocodile Hunter. This is a large wild animal park with excellent exhibits on Australian and International species.
Not to be missed is the 5000 seat Crocoseum where wildlife shows are regularly given. The most popular show is the action packed Crocodile feature where Steve Irwin used to be the host. Watch out for the Croc Death Roll! Summertime can be blazing in the sun – choose the shaded seats in the back.
NOTE: Steve died Monday Sept 4, 2006 – we saw him in Australia at the Australia Zoo just prior to his death and later visited the site off of the Queensland Coast (Batt Reef) where he was killed by a Stingray barb – this was a terrible tragedy that was felt worldwide, especially because of the randomness in which he was killed.
