Veterans Day at Australia Zoo to be held on November 3

Federal Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace MP and Australia Zoo have teamed up for the fourth annual Veterans Day at the Sunshine Coast’s much-loved tourist attraction.

Entry into Australia Zoo will be free for veterans, plus one guest each, on Thursday 3 November 2022.

Mr Wallace said it’s always a great day out in Beerwah and a great opportunity for former service men and women to catch up with mates, make new friends, and enjoy the world-class hospitality of Australia Zoo.

“We honour the great sacrifices our veterans, and their families, have made for our country,” Mr Wallace said. “This wonderful opportunity is just a small token of our great appreciation for all that they have done to protect us.”

Australia Zoo’s Robert Irwin said it was a great privilege to be able to give back to veterans.

“Australia Zoo wants to say thank you to all of our veterans and we encourage them to all come along and enjoy our wildlife demonstrations and experience conservation through exciting education,” said Robert.

Veterans will have to show their Veteran Lapel Pin, White or Gold Veteran Card, or other proof of service to get free all-day entry to the Zoo.

Veterans who do not have proof of service are encouraged to contact their local RSL sub-branch or the office of Andrew Wallace on 07 5493 5556 or

Australia Zoo is home to over 1200 beautiful animals including giraffes, tigers, koalas, kangaroos, and the star attraction crocodiles.
