The award-winning “boutique” wildlife experience Koala Gardens offers guests a fantastic opportunity to interact with some of Australia’s most recognisable animals. Use the chance to “Cuddle a Koala” (extra cost includes a digital souvenir photo).
Koalas, quokkas, freshwater crocodiles, kangaroos and wallabies, wombats, snakes, monitors, and many reptiles can all be found in Koala Gardens. Join our Wildlife Keeper for a short guided tour , where you’ll learn about bilbies, possums, and gliders. See our newest exhibit, the ‘Aussie Bush Collection,’ which features a combination of marsupials and reptiles. All of this is available at Kuranda Village markets.
You can meet, pat, and hand feed tame kangaroos, pademelons, and wallabies in our open layout. We also have a significant variety of lizards, dragons, and monitors. Camouflage is essential to their survival, so take your time and look for them amid the trees, leaves, and streams.
Freshwater Crocodiles can be found relaxing around the lagoon, frequently soaking up the sun on the banks. Because of our elevated bridge walkway, you can see them from above. Many of the rainforest’s loveliest denizens, such as the Squirrel and Mahogany Gliders, are only active at night, but you can see what they get up to at our Nocturnal Wonders display, which also houses the first Bilbies in North Queensland, as well as some Bettongs and Bandicoots.
The museum is open all day, with a guided tour at 2 p.m. Meet our Wildlife Keeper for an educational presentation about Australian marsupials such as wombats, kangaroos, wallabies, and quokkas.
