Whether you’re living in the city or back in the country, life and its responsibilities tend to wear you down. So, if you’re brave enough, break the cycle of work – eat – sleep – repeat and have an adventure in Australia Zoo’s island oasis called Bindi’s Island.

An Enormous Treehouse

Bring out your inner child and explore this tropical paradise. You’ll find the largest treehouse in the southern hemisphere, with amazing views of the entire island and the wonderful wildlife in it. Honestly, who hasn’t dreamed of having their very own treehouse, an amazing fortress or a sanctuary to escape all of your troubles. This interactive treehouse, built around a replica of a fig tree, is the grown-up version of that, and then some.

Watch The Lemurs Do Yoga — sort of — And So Much more

From the treehouse, you already have an amazing view of the quirky ring-tailed lemurs. Get up-close and personal with them, and discover their zany little habits. One thing’s for sure, you’re bound to find a lemur or two playing hide-and-seek, sun-baking, and doing yoga poses — sort of. Spend a day with these adorable little critters to find out if they really are as cheeky as the lemurs in the animated movie Madagascar.

Of course, lemurs aren’t the only animals in there. Watch in amazement as boa constrictors slither through the jungle, in search for prey to coil. Hang out with beautiful Aldabran tortoises and alligator snapping turtles, and enjoy the tranquility of their home as much as they do. Treat your eyes to whooshing shades of blue, gold, scarlet, and green, as the playful macaws flip, float, and fly through the island.
