This was a lot of fun! Dinner included chicken, steak, and fish with salad, potatoes, and more. All the food was pretty good. Dinner was served in a covered pavilion which had plenty of wine and beer on tap. The ability to hand feed kangaroos was our favorite part of the night, closely followed by the koala petting, which was closely followed by one of the guides feeding crocodiles from within the crocodile enclosure. The Night Zoo is close to Cairns and Port Douglas and is well worth a trip if you're in the area. This is also a very kid-friendly outing. Highly recommended!
This was loads of fun. Enjoy a nice dinner and authentic Aussie entertainment. The zoo tour is very interesting. It's great to see the nocturnal animals up and about. The best part was the bush tea. I got to pet and feed a mob of kangaroos. This activity is a great intro to Australian culture and wildlife.

Doing what: Cairns Tropical Zoo Morning Tour including Breakfast
Fantastic morning, great experience, do not miss this!
Great night out, would definitely recommend it!
Really great fun! You get close up with so many animals and the food is just beautiful! It's a must do!
We went on many tours while in Australia, and this was by far the best. Everyone in our party enjoyed the tour of the Zoo where all of the nocturnal animals were wide awake and entertaining. The food beforehand and the entertainment afterwards were first class in every way, and we would recommend this tour to anyone.
We had an absolutely brill time at the Cairns Night Zoo. Everyone should try it. This is one of the best Oz experiences.
This was the best tour of our whole trip, and the least expensive. Definitely join in with the band. This was a tremendous experience. We will definitely visit again! The koalas were great, and the crocodiles were rather big!
Don't miss this, it's brilliant.
Had a brilliant time at the zoo - wanted the night show to go on for another hour as people were just getting into the dancing.

Doing what: Cairns Night Zoo Safari and Barbecue Dinner
This tour was so instructive, exhaustive and the musical improvisation with aussie instruments was so much fun! The feeding of the crocs made me feel I was in an Indiana Jones movie! Terrific!
Lively and fun evening where I held a koala. Loved meeting the bandicoot and wombat. Nice dinner and friendly staff. There was less animal viewing than I expected; much more dance and singing instead.
Few things are better than having a picture with a six foot python wrapped around your neck. Great experience. More animals and less singing would have made it better.
Good food and company except the ANTS
