  • 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.
  • Good place to see and get in contact with typical australian animals.
  • Very touristy and average. Koala photo opp is against a fake background and no kangaroos in sight, just lazy wallabies.
  • 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.
