  • We paid for a 3 park pass (Bird World, Butterflys and Koala Gardens). To be honest, after the other 2 that were great attractions, this one was a real let down. Not much to realky see or do. A few koa...  more »
  • With only 6 hours between Cairns and an international flight we had to choose carefully to see as much as possible. Kuranda was perfect. They offer different parks such as animals, a bird park, and a ...  more »
  • It was a small set up but worth a visit as you get to see some of the animals close up and wandering quite freely in some cases. Big bonus is you can pay to have your picture taken with a koala althou...  more »

  • Located on the top floor with a small delicatessen by the entrance. A fee is required to enter the fenced in Koalas which entitle the customers to hang around with the cuddly marsupials and have their picture taken up close and personal with them. Great opportunity and fun especially for kids young and old alike.
  • Great place to see many wild animals. You can pet and feed kangaroos and wallabies there. They are very cute. For an additional price you can cuddle with a koala and if you are brave enough hold snake around your neck. Crocodiles were very sleepy.
  • Great experience with these adorable wildlifes. However, it feels bit overpriced as there are only few animals. You can only see several species and few of each. Here is good for someone who can't afford to go another sanctuary but I don't recommend someone else who are planning to go another sanctuary. Thanks
  • One of the nicest places on the planet and absolutely no doubt why this is a UNESCO heritage site. A great variety of koala bears and wallabies on display.the ability of the kids to take the koala in their arms and be photographed was great. So was their ability to feed them with their hands..awesome
  • The largest butterfly exhibit in Australia. Good fun. Near kuranda markets. Worth a visit particularly if you have kids
