Much of the land owned by the Irwin family has been developed into Australia Zoo, the premier showcase among Australian zoos.  Steve Irwin's father purchased the land, more than a hundred acres, many years ago.  The Australian and Queensland governments have jointly built a major highway parallel to the Sunshine Coast, north to south. This has really put the Irwin property, Australia Zoo, on the tourist route. Steve Irwin's skill, knowledge and personality made him world famous.  His family - wife Terri, daughter Bindi and son Robert have continued his work in conserving wildlife.  Australia Zoo has Australian animals as well as animals from other countries.
The original small animal park has been redeveloped and made much larger. It has been called Australia Zoo only in recent years. I would say about a third of visitors come from the United States. It is always crowded there now. I believe there are plans on the drawing board to build a motel and convention centre beside Australia Zoo

AUSTRALIAN ZOOS

Mysterious and weird are animals Australia.
Crocodiles are quite prevalent in northern Queensland. In some instances they move onto beaches and into drains. Queensland Parks and Wildlife officers monitor the situation and remove crocodiles if they get too close to people. It is not really people they are interested in: they eat wild pigs as they wander along riverbanks.
Steve & Terri Irwins' book The Crocodile Hunter is enjoyable reading and his DVD is good viewing.
Australian animals feature in Zoos of South Australia.

The Tasmanian tiger is extinct.  It was hunted into extinction by Australian farmers who were losing livestock to the animal.  Filmed and kept in captivity for a short time, authorities failed to instigate a breeding program.  Thus, the species was lost for all time.  Thylacinus cynocephalus was a mysterious animal.  Very little was learned about its behavior before it died out.

It was like a large dog in size and stance.  Indeed, it seems to have evolved as a marsupial dog to fulfill a niche in the environment.  The Tasmanian Tiger emitted a muffled bark.  When hunting they gave a sharper double bark repeated every few seconds.  Though filmed,  no sound recording of it exists.

World's Greatest Imitator
The Lyre bird copies just about every sound it hears.  This includes mobile phone jingles, chain saws, trains, trucks, even car engines being turned on.
Cassowary
A flightless bird, the cassowary lives in northern Australia and does attack people.
Wedge Tailed Eagle
This is Australia's largest bird of prey which lives  mainly off rabbits and also eats dead animals.
Kookaburra
When you are in the bush you can hear this bird  laughing at you: it thrives near humans.
Box Jelly Fish
This transparent marine animal kills more Australians than sharks or crocodiles.
Blue Ringed Octopus
This octopus which can kill has blue rings around its body.
Stone Fish
A creature that is brown like a rock blends into the sand on the floor of the ocean and venom from dorsal spines can be lethal.
Lung Fish
Queensland is the home of the prehistoric Lung Fish dating from the Triassic period, 350 million years ago.
Marsupial
Australia has a unique body of animals called marsupials that carry their young in a pouch.
Kangaroo

A large marsupial, the baby kangaroo is barely big enough to see when born. It crawls from the birth canal to suckle on the teat.  In drought  female can choose when to give birth.
Tree Kangaroo
This unusual animal chooses to live in trees where it eats leaves and fruit.
Quokka
These tiny small wallabies live in Western Australia and can go without food or water for a long time.
Wombat
Wombats are small rotund animals 1.3 meters long that wobble along.  They eat grass and live in forested areas on the coast.
Egg Laying Mammals
The echidna and platypus are two egg laying mammals unique to Australia.
Platypus
Naturalists brought a strange animal back to England but "experts' said it was a hoax because it was made up of body parts from many animals.  It did indeed truly exist though.  Poison from platypus spines can kill a dog.
Tasmanian Devil
This noisy creature devours every bit of flesh it finds.  Two or three will squabble over the same grizzled body part.  A Devil will eat a third of its bodyweight at one sitting.
Sugar Glider
Gliding from the top of trees to the base of other trees is the prerogative of this animal which is nocturnal.
Camels
Early explorers brought camels to Australia though the one humped camel that became established came from Palestine and India.
Crocodiles
Saltwater crocodiles lie in wait for prey to come along the edge of a river.  They are more dangerous when you don't see them than when you do.
Sharks
The great white shark kills more people than any other though their usual prey is fish.
Dingo
Claimed to be an Australian species it is believed to have originated in Asia possibly China 3,500 years ago.
Funnel Web Spider
Sydney is plagued by the Funnel Web Spider which bites right through gloves.  Its attacks can kill a human in less than two hours.
Redback Spider
Though greatly feared this spider cannot kill but its bite makes you very sick.
Snakes
The Inland Taipan, Eastern Brown, Coastal Taipan, Mainland Tiger and the Peninsula Tiger are the five most dangerous snakes in the world if you are a mouse.  Bites by the Eastern Brown kills a few people each year.  Antivenom saves lives.  Other snakes kill more Australians.
Green Tree Frog

This native of Australia which lives in tree and rocks near water is popular as a pet and is easy to look after.
Frilled Neck Lizard
Lizards from different regions are colored differently in order to blend into their surrounding.
Blue tongued Lizard
There are six species of blue tongued lizard and they can be picked up but they bite.
Thorny Devil
This animal has spiky spines jutting out of its body and it frequents arid areas where it scoots from rock to rock eating insects.
Goanna
Over twenty species of goanna live in Australia the largest growing to two meters.
Centipedes & Scorpions
The bite of these creatures is painful but they don't kill.

Australian Zoos are located throughout the country.
