Inside the Australia Zoo Shop
Did you know that when you visit Australia Zoo and buy souvenirs from the gift shop you’re helping us to protect wildlife and wild places as Australia Zoo funnels the profits from these sales back into wildlife conservation!
That makes for guilt-free shopping indeed.
(Same goes for shopping in their online store too.)
Best Things to Buy at the Australia Zoo Gift Shop
There are so many options for souvenirs at the Australia Zoo Store.
But these are our faves.
The Crocodile Hunter Pop! Vinyl Toy
Steve’s dressed in his signature khaki and holding a croc of course.
This is the coolest collector item you’ll ever find.
Bindi Irwin Thongs
Our favorites include Bindi Irwin thongs!
Flip flops, jandals… they go by many names but in Australia, thongs is the correct terminology.
Thongs are Australia’s most essential footwear.
EVERYONE wears them, young and old, but one of Australia’s most iconic sites is to see a ‘bushie’ out battling the muddy roads, or a bogged car, or moving a snake out of the way, while wearing ‘pluggers’.
They are Australia’s go-to shoe at home, the beach, the shops – just about anywhere during the day in fact.
Robert Irwin Dinosaur Hunter books
These Robert Irwin books never get old.
Boys and girls who have a fascination with dinosaurs will LOVE these stories.
Australia Zoo clothing & t-shirts
You can buy ALL kinds of clothing and apparel at Australia zoo, including Australia Zoo t-shirts, AND the good old KHAKI shirt just like Steve used to wear.
Crikey Khaki Clothing
The standard Khaki outfit of the Crocodile Hunter khaki shirt and shorts that Steve was famous for comes in all sizes.
Find it for kids, for teens, for toddlers and preschoolers, AND in adult sizes too.
Shirts are embellished with “The Crocodile Hunter” logo above the pocket.
Oh, the memories of this mad, wild, crazy but intelligent man!
You can also by the Crocodile Hunter costume pack for adults and kids, with bonus rubber snake included!
Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Mug
A mug is always a good idea.
It’s a souvenir you can use back home, every single day, to remind you of your trip.
Buy a Crikey coffee mug, or one of the animals.
That’s the best kind of souvenir gift.
Hot tip: Did you know kids can join the Crikey Club? Check the Crikey magazine on their website.
