Below are just some of the exhibits that we are most proud of. These exhibits are works of art, architectural firsts, 5-star accommodation for our animals and unlike anything in any other zoo around the world. Each one of them is the brainchild of the one and only Steve Irwin; they were conceived in his mind and brought to life by the talented crew of designers, artists, builders and horticulturalists that he hand-picked and supervised. They are his dreams brought to life and we are extremely proud to present them to you. Come and see these truly stunning and adventurous exhibits in person at Australia Zoo... you just won't believe your eyes!
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.

The Crocoseum is the fulfillment of one of Steve Irwin's lifelong dreams. Steve wanted to provide the visitors to Australia Zoo with the opportunity to see crocodiles in clear water ponds, in an action-packed show full of discovery and adventure. This idea was to help educate the public by showing how crocodiles live and behave in the wild. Steve had a complicated and ambitious vision, and everyone said it couldn’t be done, well they were wrong! Visit The Crocoseum
The amazing Tiger Temple, built to resemble the famous Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia, is a work of art as well as an architectural first. Tiger Temple boasts the Southern Hemisphere’s only underwater viewing of tigers. Visit Tiger Temple
Elephantasia is Australia’s largest Asian Elephant facility. Created in 2006 for Australia Zoo’s beautiful girls Siam, Sabu and Bimbo, this Asian-themed exhibit is truly a work of art. Elephantasia features a large pool with a fountain for the girls to splash around in, a giant feature statue of Ganesh, the Hindu elephant god, lush gardens, and plenty of shade and space for the elephants.
