A wildlife hotel and restaurant inspired by Steve Irwin’s legacy has been named the Regional Project of the Year at the 2023 Australian Institute of Architects’ Sunshine Coast Architecture Awards.

Crocodile Hunter Lodge by WD Architects sits next to Australia Zoo in Beerwah. “Crocodile Hunter Lodge translates the well-known and loved Australia Zoo playfulness into a refined high-end dining and cafe experience with skilful restraint,” the jury said. “Rammed earth walls are a delightful feature throughout the internal spaces of this reimagined ‘agricultural shed’.”

The project also received a Regional Commendation in the Commercial Architecture category.

Caribou was proud to be the major lighting supplier to the project and partnered with electrical contractor, T2 Electrical to deliver the lighting for the project.

Some of the products you’ll find at the lodge include :

Razor Super Max 35
