This year on 15 November Australia Zoo, the Irwin family and Wildlife Warriors are inviting everyone all across the world to don their khaki in celebration of Steve Irwin Day, held in honour of the one and only Crocodile Hunter.

1. See the Irwins feed the crocs

The Croc Show at Australia Zoo is always an action-packed, adrenaline filled extravaganza; but, on Steve Irwin Day lucky guests will be in for a real treat!  Prepare to be wowed as Bindi, Robert and Terri follow in Steve's footsteps and get up close and personal with Australia’s apex predators for a croc feeding.

3. Complete your own conservation mission

Team up with your family and embark on a mission to collect all five Wildlife Warrior wristbands as you learn ‘The key to becoming a true Wildlife Warrior' on the Conservation Mission!

Follow the clues on the mission map to find all five locations around Australia Zoo and learn about animal conservation while collecting fun wristbands to take home.

4. Join a conservation conversation

Steve Irwin was so passionate about conservation, so Australia Zoo is using Steve Irwin Day to bring together leading experts to spread the conservation message to all of their guests. The Conservation Conversations will be held in the Australia Zoo Education Centre between 1pm to 2pm and 3pm to 4pm.

5. Get a free brekkie

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day and this Steve Irwin Day, Australia Zoo and Mix FM have you covered! Head down for an early open at 8am and pick up a FREE bacon and egg roll!
