Buy your Australia Zoo tickets here AND skip the queue. Queensland’s Australia Zoo, made famous by the late, great Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, is often referred to as Australia’s best zoo and is one of the Sunshine Coast’s absolute must-do family attractions. Australia Zoo is focused on the protection and conservation of wildlife and there are many opportunities to get up close to some of the animals including kangaroos, wallabies and cuddly koalas.
