Bindi Irwin reveals the ‘unfathomable damage’ as Australia Zoo is hit by the devastating floods

Bindi Irwin reveals the ‘unfathomable damage’ as Australia Zoo is hit by the devastating floods: ‘It’s been a long road but we’ve been able to reopen’










Bindi Irwin revealed on Saturday that Australia Zoo has been impacted by the devastating floods affecting northern New South Wales and Queensland.

The wildlife warrior, 23, shared video footage to Instagram of herself cradling her nearly one-year-old daughter Grace at home in Queensland, and detailed the extent of damage to her family’s zoo.

Bindi said that while they were able to ‘clean up and reopen’, it’s been a long journey with ‘hundreds of trees having fallen’ and ‘enormous flood waters passing through’. 

‘It’s been a long road’: Bindi Irwin, 23, took to her Instagram on Saturday to reveal the ‘unfathomable damage’ as Australia Zoo was hit by the devastating floods. The wildlife warrior accompanied the post with a video of herself cradling nearly one-year-old daughter Grace 

‘My heart goes out to everyone that has felt the hurt and experienced unfathomable damage from these unrelenting storms here in Oz,’ Bindi began her post.

‘We were hit at Australia Zoo and had hundreds of trees fall and enormous flood waters passing through. At one point, the hail was raining down so hard that I had to get Grace out of her cot and sit in our closet with her, away from windows.’

Bindi, who shares Grace with husband Chandler Powell, 25, said luckily the animals and the Australia Zoo team are safe.

‘It’s been a long road, however, thanks to our incredible team we’ve been able to cleanup and reopen. Our animals and team are safe. The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital never closed and is busier than ever.

Rain and floods continue to batter New South Wales and Queensland with warnings the bad weather will continue into next week.

Minor flooding is also expected along the Dawson River at Baralaba, in central Queensland, with more severe thunderstorms headed to the south-east of the state.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast the bad weather to continue in both states into next week with heavy rain and strong winds this weekend. 

Queensland schools will remain shut with more torrential flooding on the way after a historic week of rain.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the decision on Thursday with only children of essential workers permitted at schools, as more dangerous storms are expected. 

The death toll from the floods in Queensland has climbed to 10, after the body of a 53 year old man found under a wharf near Port of Brisbane. He was reported missing on Monday.
