Every day during the winter holidays, the Irwin family will be feeding the crocs at the 12.00noon Wildlife Warrior Show. Spectators will be taught all about croc safety by the Wildlife Warriors and an appreciation of Australia's apex predator. An apex predator - for those like me who didn't know - is a predator at the top of a food chain, with no natural predators of its own. Thanks Wikipedia!
Every day during the school holidays, see the crocs being fed at 12noon
Giant inflatable obstacle course
With temperatures dropping, the children won't be too keen to go swimming, but Australia Zoo has a solution for that under wraps too. A giant inflatable obstacle course! An excellent way to burn off the extra school holiday energy is to tackle this inflatable obstacle course - why not have your own mini-family competition and see who can complete the course in the shortest possible time!
