What You Can Expect

Kuranda Koala Gardens and Birdworld Admission Tickets

Cuddle a koala at Kuranda Koala Gardens!

Start your self-guided wildlife encounter at Kuranda Koala Gardens, one of only a few places in Australia where you can cuddle a koala! If you like, you can purchase a souvenir photo of your close-up koala encounter (cuddle and photo experience at additional cost).

At the gardens, you’ll get up-close to freshwater crocodiles and have the chance to hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies. You'll also see the elusive wombats – these sleepy, shy animals are the world's largest burrowing mammals and aren’t often seen in the wild, so don’t miss them!

Then take a walk through Australia’s only walk-through snake house to see pythons and poisonous snakes, as well as dragon and monitor lizards lurking in their enclosures.

While at Kuranda Koala Gardens, you’ll receive your ticket for Birdworld, where Australia’s largest flock of free-flying birds awaits! Just a short walking distance from the Koala Gardens, this massive flight aviary is landscaped with water features and rainforest plants, home to more than 80 species of native and rare birds.

Spot cassowaries, increasingly rare in the wild, as well as bowerbirds, parrots and lorikeets. You’ll also see international visitors such as South American macaws, and have the chance to hand-feed rainbow lorikeets, cheeky cockatoos and other Australian birds (at additional cost).
