Australia Zoo

On the Steve Irwin Way, no less.

Photos speak louder than words at Australia Zoo, home to the celebrity cult of the Irwin family, and numerous wild animals. Father Steve (deceased 2006), aka Crocodile Hunter, built up the zoo he took over from his father.

His apparently maniacal widow, Terri, holds the reins now, and it's 'one helluva ride', with son and daughter in tow.

The Zoo provides an exciting and educational day out for families and cynics alike, "crikey".

We saw koalas, which had evaded us on our antipodean adventure so far, Tasmanian devils, which had remained hidden. Plus a whole host of other creatures with which we now had a greater level of familarity: enormous saltwater crocodiles, plus freshwater cousins; kangaroos that we could feed; wallabies; imported komodo dragons and alligators and hundreds of birds whose names we cannot entirely recall.

Have a happy Christmas checking out the photos!

Once again wonderful photographs! Love the green python (only the photo of it!), and the cuddly koala, oh, and mustn't forget the rain dance! Take it that's an Oz custom?

such stunning photography!
You have really good shots here. One thing I love about TravelBlog is I can browse through blogs starting with the awesome photos. That's how I got here. Will be working "backwards" now to check your other blogs. Neat writing too! Liliram

The photos are very thrilling and appropriate. The travel zoo blog also uploads such pictures which I would really like to see.
