  • It is a credit card payment accepted. No fees. Koala had let me hold was a very cute face. After holding the name, age and weight to hear back. Because it had no customers in the US after long time hug, didn't need to shoot on their Smartphone. I heard that (filmed in the video) by our friends in the Centre of Cairns corelphoto hug is is like an assembly line, 抱kenakatta only about 5 seconds. Be in style and serve with both hands at the navel and not only the bottom part of the Koala. So, if you hold a koala at Cairns we recommend here. Photo reflection (quality) get taken here by the way, was not so good.

  • This is a small wildlife park, but you can get up close and personal with the animals. There are quite a few koalas, and, for an extra fee, you can hold one and get your photo taken. The photographer ...  more »
  • Educational and good fun. The people obviously care for the animals and love to talk about them. Our group of 4 adults enjoyed our visit  more »

  • The Kuranda Koala Gardens is situated in the village of Kuranda near Cairns in Australia's Northern Territory. This is among a few other attractions there for visitors to enjoy. This place is basically a petting zoo where you can touch the indigenous animals and take pictures with them. Great for families with small children. Be sure to wash your child's hand thoroughly after touching the koalas as they don't seem to be keeping the animals clean! The overall experience was good however the animal keeper and caretaker should be a little more patient with the children, my child got yelled at for venturing into the open wallaby enclosure!
  • AMAZING! This was the highlight of our time in Australia. We got amazing pictures and got to feed a kangaroo and hold a koala. It even exceeded my expectations.
  • You can hold a koala here which i think is the main attraction as the rest of it is really quite small, with not masses to see. Having said that holding a koala was amazing and not something to pass on. The staff are lovely and all the wildlife is well looked after and appear very content. Worth a visit if you are in kuranda.
  • Absolutely a must for travellers. Not too expensive and abundance to see. Great pastime if you have kids. You can get up close and personal with some of the local critters.
  • Very well maintained and so interesting. The koalas are sooo cute. It's worth a trip.
