What You Can Expect

Cairns Night Zoo Safari and Barbecue Dinner

Cairns Night Zoo Safari and Barbecue Dinner

This thoroughly "Aussie" night begins with a hearty barbecue dinner of steak, chicken, prawns and salads, including juice and soft drinks throughout the evening. After feasting on dinner, you'll join your intrepid guide to see what some Australians get up to after dark! Supplied with your own flashlight, you'll be led into the darkness to meet Australia's creatures of the night. You'll see crocodile eyes glow in the torchlight, learn how owls hunt, touch a possum and pat a koala. On clear nights the guides will take you star gazing to see the Southern Cross, Big Dipper and other well-known constellations.

You'll also join the Zoo's resident swagman and tame kangaroos for traditional billy tea and bush damper around the campfire, and enjoy great Aussie live entertainment. This fabulous fun night out is one to remember!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Having the opportunity to see the animals in a nighttime setting was amazing, the animals were very active and the information provided on them and on the zoo was very interesting. Feeding the kangaroos and getting to pose with the Kuala bears was a special treat. They also fed the crocodiles, captivating! The barbecue was prepared while you got an introductory meet and greet with your fellow tourist over some wine and or beer and snacks that were provided. The food was excellent and the entertainment after the tour was fun. The best wildlife experience we had while we in Australia.
