Where are we going today?

Boasting Australia's first walk through snake house, Kuranda Koala Garden is not just about the koalas, there are a number of other species to visit with too including reptiles, kangaroos and wallabies, wombats and big crocodiles.

Suitable for all ages and most levels of mobility, they have a hands on approach with many of the animals, allowing at certain times hand feeding, koala cuddling and plenty of interaction.

There is also a zone focusing on pioneering history as there is a filial link between the owners and significant pioneers.

    A wonderful little wildlife park in the rainforest featuring a variety of Australian animals. The animals were great, well looked after, and seemed happy to be around people. The venue was nice, and the rainforest atmosphere made it seem that little bit more special and unique. The staff were very friendly, and the price was quite reasonable. This park isn't about having thousands of animals, its showcasing the Australian animals in a unique and intimate setting. Absolutely wonderful!
