Thanks for everything you've meant to my daughter, Steve-O. Your passing is like losing a member of our family, mate.
DisneyWorld likes to call itself the "happiest place on Earth". Well, that's not true for my youngest, my daughter Sara. Australia Zoo is her holy land, her sacred ground.

Follow Steve Irwin way for about 10 km and you'll see the zoo over on the left. You can park right by the gate of the zoo.
