The Australiana Shop is located in the heart of the Zoo, stocking an extensive range of Australian-made souvenirs. Featured strongly are authentic indigenous products both carved and hand-painted locally, beautiful hand-painted scarves and table cloths that are perfect for a gift, or a reminder of true artistry.
A bit of cowboy racing through your veins? Your Akubra hat and oilskin jacket awaits you. There are few things more true blue than the beautiful Opal, and we have them set in earrings, pendants and bracelets. Looking for loose pieces of opal? We have those too!
There are t-shirts available in sizes for adults and children with the range consisting of kangaroos, crocodiles, snakes, turtles, wombats, koalas and tigers. The plush toy section is a sight that would send any child into a frenzy - toys, toys everywhere! So drop by and pay us a visit at the Australiana Shop where smiling, helpful staff will be only too happy to assist you in finding the perfect gift.
