Woo-hoo! Australia Zoo announces first ever water park

THE Sunshine Coast's favourite zoo is continuing to expand and is now set to add a kids' water park to the tourist attraction.

Zoo owner Terri Irwin announced today the construction of the brand new water play area had begun.

She said 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 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," Terri said.

"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.
