I heard that Steve Irwin works at the Australian Zoo & there are often daily shows which you can spectate.

Is this true? if so which zoo is it & wheres it based?

Steve's zoo is called Australia Zoo, and its on the Sunshine Coast, about two hours from the Gold Coast and three and a half hours from Hervey Bay.

I'm fairly sure Steve's not there much because of his international touring and media committments, but the zoo is still a great place to visit even without Steve. I had a photo taken with a giant snake wrapped around me, and you can pat koalas/kangaroos, there's crocodiles, dingoes, otters, a giant galagapos turtle called Harriet that's over 100 years old, and much more!!

There's a website if you google it- i think it has something about zoo tours or activities which might mention if Steve is actually going to be there.

Hope this helps,
