Want To Own A Zoo? Darling Downs Family To Sell After 20 Years

It’s the end of an era for the founder of Queensland’s Darling Downs Zoo Steve, who has decided to sell the 48-hectare property and business. Steve joins Flan, Ali and Spida saying it was a difficult decision however he says, “I’m not a spring chicken anymore” and says he just isn’t up to it anymore. 

“We don’t go to work here, we live in the zoo, we have a massive family of about 500 kids”

The Zoo is home to 500 animals, 150 species and has approximately 50,000 visitors annually. 

Steve opens up about each and every animal they have showing how much he cares for them, cheekily saying his favourite animal is his wife.
