Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo ? & Brisbane by Night
So you’re thinking of heading out to Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo? Carry on reading ?
I spent quite a bit of time in Brisbane but most of it was looking for jobs and ending up randomly working at a coconut factory for a few days as I was running out of cash. The lovely folk at the hostel, Banana Bender Backpackers hooked me up with a job there. It was most certainly an experience and has left me with a few stories to tell!
On the way out of Australia after spending 6 months working in Dingo I again spent a few days in Brisbane, this time it was more fun! I headed on out to Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo and for someone who isn’t a huge fan of zoo’s for moral reasons, I really enjoyed my time here hence why I decided to share about it! I use to love the show but also Steve Irwin himself and his family are still so passionate about the conservation of animals. The great thing about the zoo is just how much land they have and how they were introducing animals to live with each other so that they were more close to their natural habitat of living.
The place was really well maintained but also I loved the educational aspect of what they were offering.
I would highly recommend a visit if you are in Brisbane sometime.
You can either get a tour out but I did it independently. It was $60 AUD entrance for adults at the time.
For anyone who may be backpacking or want to save money getting there like I did or just wanted to see more by land , the cheapest way to get there for me was to catch the subway from Roma Street station through to Nambour. It cost $15 AUD one way at the time.
Here’s a photo diary from the day and some photos of Brisbane by night.
