Australia has some of the most dangerous animals in the world. The desert continent hosts six out of 10 of the most venomous snakes and four of the most venomous spiders. The surrounding waters hide three of the most poisonous creatures in the world and are also haunted by the great white shark and saltwater crocodiles, both in the top 10 of deadly animals in the world.

Artisan Design developed concepts for an Australian zoo themed attraction centered on getting up close and personal to these dangerous antipodeans, as well as including the more traditional (slightly) friendly fauna. Visitors would be able to see, touch and experience these deadly Australasian’s in a mix of attractions, including ‘in the wild’ animal sanctuary enclosures, live shows, swimming opportunities, tree top walks and attractions.

The concept development was submitted in 2011.
