After a While, Crocodile

TV's Fabled Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, Pays A Visit to Bali's Elephant Safari Park

(6/26/2002)

Viewed by a worldwide TV Audience of over 500 million people, Australia's daring-do "Crocodile Hunter," Steve Irwin is a familiarly eccentric figure who regularly wrestles carnivorous reptiles and crawls through the underbrush in search of extremely venomous snakes in the course of his popular television series.

In May, Steve brought his wife, Terri, and their 4-year-old daughter, Bindi Sue, on a Bali Holiday. Steve, who is also the proprietor of the Australia Zoo in Queensland, included a visit to Bali's Elephant Safari Park, north of Ubud, in his holiday schedule.

Steve Irwin was so impressed with the care and attention lavished on the elephants by the Park's Owner, Nigel Mason, that he proclaimed the Park as best such facility he's ever seen and insisted on visiting the park on two separate occasions whilst in Bali. No small praise from a man who's arguably seen every major live animal exhibit on the planet!

The host of the popular wild-life series The Crocodile Hunter and the Director of the Australia Zoo, Steve inherited the Zoo and his love of animals from his famous naturalist parents, Bob and Lyn Irwin. Giving new meaning to "father and son outings," the senior Irwin taught his then nine-year-old son the finer points of catching a wild crocodile at night in a North Queensland river.

Surviving, and after a stint as a volunteer rogue crocodile hunter for the State Government, Steve eventually made a television pilot Crocodile Hunter documentary with a friend and television producer. 10 additional episode quickly followed of Crocodile Hunter, leading to a 52 episode series Croc File, and a soon-to-be-launched animated series based on the hair-raising exploits of Steve Irwin.

Kids, please don't try anything Steve does at home. Okay?

Steve Irwin's fundamental respect for all wild creatures is obvious to anyone who watches him on TV. For that reason, the praise he chose to extend to Bali's Elephant Park is reason enough to include this outstanding facility on your next Bali visit.
