We can spend some time looking through the Sanctuary, like feeding the wild lorikeets or perhaps boarding the miniature steam train for, “Kangaroo Crossing”; and coming face to face with kangaroos, wallabies and some not-quite-so-friendly crocodiles.

Day 3 Tuesday 20 July 2021 Australia Zoo Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

No holiday to this area would be complete without a visit to Australia Zoo – home to the late Steve Irwin, the “Crocodile Hunter”. Australia Zoo has a reputation for conservation work, due mainly to the popularity of the documentary series “The Crocodile Hunter”. Many millions of dollars have been invested in the park so that it is an ever changing and growing attraction. When we arrive, we have some free time to look through the zoo before we find our seats in the “Crocoseum” for the mid-day Wildlife Warriors Show. Get ready for some serious wildlife action! Every day in the Crocoseum the Australia Zoo keepers are taking on the world’s conservation issues and protecting the animal kingdom, and they want us to join the army of Wildlife Warriors. Enjoy a journey of discovery and learn all about the incredible world of giant snakes, colourful soaring birds and those prehistoric legends, the big Saltwater Crocodiles. Here at the zoo we can enjoy lunch, and then we are off to visit an interesting local business located at the foot of the Glasshouse Mountains. Parrots in Paradise is a not for profit bird sanctuary, and is home to over 400 birds, many of which have been rescued or adopted so they can live a better life. On arrival we can enjoy afternoon tea, and then sit down to watch a unique show performed by the resident Parrots.
