  • We felt this was not value for money, we only saw a few koalas and three wallabies who had eaten lots of food and were not interested. This was overpriced for the 5 minutes we spent in the koala secti...  read more »
  • Very short but sweet visit! The gardens are small and really take no time to get around but the animals are interesting, especially as the three children in our group had no real experience of Austral...  read more »
  • can not get in the gardens as i need extra payment. the ticket doesn't include the ticket for this garden. such a rip off! 
  • The children enjoyed getting up close to koalas, kangaroos and wallabies. Have to say that Kuranda is a tourist trap plain and simple. If you accept that you'll probably enjoy it otherwise you may be disappointed (as some people plainly were). As traveling Brits on holiday we loved holding the koala and feeding the animals as it was obviously a novel experience for us.
  • The entrance fee for Kuranda Koala Gardes is relative high and you have to pay additional 20 AUD in case you want to get a picture with a Koala bear. The areal is not very large and you have seen everything after a short walk around.
  • The highlight here is the koala cuddle photo but you should also visit Birdworld next door for a very up close and memorable experience with Australian native birds.
  • It was awesome to hold a koala bear at an affordable price. Also, with a short drive, Barron falls was spectacular!!
  • Cute little zoo like area where you can hold a koala 🐨 for $20 and feed kangaroos. But really small otherwise
