Australian Zoos

Zoos in Australia are popular destinations for visitors and vital to the survival of many species that are threatened elsewhere. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, for example, is a great place to visit if you're interested in koalas. There are more than 130 koalas at this sanctuary in Brisbane, making it the largest of its kind in the world besides being actively engaged in research to find ways to protect these endangered marsupials. The Australia Zoo is the only zoo of its kind in the world, housing over 1,200 animals across its multiple exhibits. Plus, with Australia Zoo tickets in hand, you can get up close and personal with incredible creatures and witness the thrill of daily conservation shows. But, if you desire to experience an open-range zoo you can get to the Werribee zoo and spot the critically endangered Przewalski's Horse besides animals like zebra, addax, and bison on a bus safari.
