“Cool for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A great place to take kids for 2-3 hours visit. Educational and relaxed atmosphere, excellent bird show. Quite limited by space as to the variety of species. Friendly and helpful staff.

“Really a nice place to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stay 8 nights near cairns zoo and went there our last day in Australia. It was amazing and we learn a lot about all the stranges animals we never have seen before. A good thing they teach us about snakes, birds, kongoroos (we feed them) crocodills, cute koalas, we Even like the dingos! The zoo was so beautyfull and we loved walk around the park. If you are nearby cairns you must visit that zoo!!

“Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I found this zoo really relaxing, so many different animals that we probably missed some. The crocodile talk was really interesting!

“great little zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

holding the koala was a wonderful experience. Michael the photographer is patient and waits until he gets just the right picture even though he was busy he made sure the picture was perfect.

“Hold a koala is the main attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Hold a koala: Check
Hand-feed kangaroo: Check

$33 to get in, extra $18 to hold the koala, with an extra $3 on that to email the picture to you.

We got there for the 9:30AM koala schedule on a hot day. The kangaroos were quite active, but the other animals were pretty lethargic meaning we couldnt get a good view of many of them.

Thought it might be a bit bigger. Half-day or less is enough. I think we spent less than 2 hours total.

If the money goes to protecting some animals, then its all worth it.
