Getting Here


What The Locals Love

❤️ Tuck into a plate of Queensland tiger prawns at the Beerwah Hotel.
❤️ Have a picnic at the base of Mount Beerwah.

Just an hour's drive north of Brisbane you’ll find the greenery-strewn town of Beerwah. Home to the largest volcanic plug of the Glass House Mountains and the world-famous Australia Zoo - days spent in Beerwah are filled with exploring and adoring Mother Nature in all her beauty. 

First things first, lace up your walking shoes and make tracks to one of several locations in Glass House Mountains National Park. There are a variety of walking tracks and shared trails available including the Tibrogargan circuit, Soldier Settlers trail and Trachyte circuit, all considered to be a moderately challenging course with a grade 3 rating with walks allowing from 1.5 hours to 3 hours to complete.

Beerwah’s other crown jewel has to be Australia Zoo, the home of the Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. Here you can explore more than 110 acres filled with 1200 amazing animals at the world’s most interactive conservation destination.

Here you can cuddle a koala, feed their gorgeous kangaroos lunch and even walk a wombat. Travel to Africa, no passport required, at the zoo’s very own savannah filled with meerkats, giraffes and zebras, or head to South-East Asia to visit their majestic tigers and red panda. 

At noon in the world-famous Crocoseum visitors can watch the Wildlife Warriors Show, with all the slithering, swooping, jaw-snapping action of epic saltwater crocodiles, birds and snakes. 

Let your heartbeat stabilise with a late lunch at the Crikey Cafe and make sure you explore the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, the busiest wildlife hospital of its kind in the world. If you want to sleep on the wild side, book a night or two at the newly opened Crocodile Hunter Lodge, which offers beautiful cabins overlooking the Australian bush.

Other attractions nearby include Big Kart Track at Landsborough and Aussie World at Palmview.
