The Elephants and their keeper at Australia Zoo

"Australia Zoo is huge with an amazing display of all types of animals, reptiles and birds. We have been there twice the first time was when Steve and Terri were overseas promoting there movie the 'Crocodile Hunter', then we went back about five years ago. Since then more displays and animals etc. have been added.

The zoo is one of the top attractions in Australia and well worth going to and an excellent day, but it is fairly expensive to get in the gate.
Plan to go for the whole day and to save money take a picnic lunch, snacks and drinks with you, then you can buy a treat or souvenir etc."
