Travel approximately one-hour to Queensland's Sunshine Coast and the Australia Zoo. This 70-acre animal conservancy that was founded by Steve Irwin. Steve's real-life antics spawned a number of TV series and fame for the man now known the world over as the Crocodile Hunter. In 2006, Steve Irwin was killed in a freak accident, but his legacy is the Australia Zoo, providing the ultimate wildlife adventure.
The Australia Zoo is home to some of the world's most exotic wildlife. See fresh- and salt-water crocodiles, feed the kangaroos, watch a huge crocodile spring from the water's edge.
You can also have your photo taken with a giant python (at your own expense).
There are 14 wildlife shows offered daily (included) and four shopping outlets, with snacks and refreshments also available for purchase at Australia Zoo.
You'll have approximately two hours to explore the park at your own pace; then, meet your coach at the agreed upon place and time.
Next, you'll ascend the winding road to Montville. This town in the hinterland was settled in 1887 and is often described as 'the creative heart of the Sunshine Coast'. Montville is home to art galleries, artist studios and handicraft workshops. Take a stroll through the tranquil village populated by restored Victorian cottages. Browse in the stores for artwork, gifts, jewelry and other souvenirs.
Finally, you'll head back to the pier.
