Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Cairns Night Zoo Safari and Barbecue Dinner. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This is a fun thing to do. there were only about 25 people of varying ages and nationalities. The barbecue was quite nice with sufficient variety of food for all. I liked having a flashlight (torch) while walking around as the ground is not always flat. The zoo is small but we did see some unusual animals. Here you can pay to hold the koala--something that cannot be done elsewhere in Australia--at a cost of $18. Many of the other zoo inhabitants were also touchable except the crocs and the poisonous ones. After the zoo tour there was entertainment where the staff got everyone involved one way or another in the fun. It was a good way to spend a different kind of evening.
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.
I would definitely do this again and if you have kids, its a must do. Lots of food and drink, photo with a koala, and hand feed kangaroos. What;s better than that!
Fantastic night. It was my partners 50th birthday and the crowd sang 'happy birthday' to him. My youngest daughter was invited by the staff to perform with them on stage. Overall a fantastic night.
Great Experience. If you're booked for time and can't fit a zoo or wildlife trip in during the day then definitely do this. The alligator feeding and hand feeding the kangaroos was awesome.
A real chance to interact with animals, and staff was lovely. A mark down on food and entertainment.
This was a great trip to do as we got a chance to get up close to the animals and see the animals that would normally be asleep during the day. Watching the crocs get fed was fun. The food was good and there was plenty of it, free drinks during the evening made a change too. The staff were friendly and informative.
It was a bit too expensive, but it was great. We saw a lot of rare animals that you can only see in Australia.
A good night out. The BBQ ws very good and staff informative and friendly.
Fun night, although the facility itself could be upgraded, but this was a fine experience with a great staff to help us out.
This was lots of fun. They let you pet the Koala Bears and you get to feed the kangaroos. This provided great close up-and-personal opportunities. You get to see the crocodiles as well. The food was not that great.

Enjoyable time. Food was good, very friendly staff. You obviously see a lot more during the day but the entertainment at the end made a great fun time.
Fantastic for overseas visitors and if you have a child with you. Our 5-year-old grandson loved every minute, and we loved watching him have a ball.
This is a great way to see the animals. The food is a bit lackluster, but the animals made everything worthwhile!
The food, the tour of the zoo, and the entertainment were good. It was well worth the visit, although I did feel it was expensive for how long we were there.
The food was good and the dancing was really good fun.
A fun trip to a zoo to see some things you can't see everyday. Food was decent and you get as much beer and wine as you like. Definitely more of an older crowd though.
Started out a little slow with the dinner. Things picked up real quick once the tour started. Don't be fooled by the term 'torch'. That's not a stick with fire on it. In that part of the world a 'torch' is a flashlight. Bring your own small flashlight as their's is a little weak. The animals were unbelievable. I had no idea that we would be so close to them and actually touch them. It was great.
Had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend to anyone who is in Cairns!
