Construction has begun on this brand new water play area. Once open, this fun-filled area will be open to all guests and will include spectacular native wildlife sculptures, designed by our Australia Zoo artists, to cool you off.
This will be an above-ground water adventure, designed for keeping even our youngest guests safe and happy. And it's all eco-friendly with specially designed recycled water components.
Terri Irwin, owner of Australia Zoo, said the water park is an exciting addition for guests to the Zoo.
"We are so excited to see this new area being created by our incredible team. Our enormous laughing frog will tip immense amounts of water after you hear him start croaking. We'll have a giant squirting kookaburra, a huge water bubbling crocodile, and many more.
"We'll keep everyone updated with grand opening information over the next few weeks. Announcements will be made on our website as well as social media."
These fountains of fun will be free with your paid admission to Australia Zoo. The development will continue with more dining options and even private cabanas, to roll out through 2018.
