Kuranda Koala Gardens and Birdworld Admission Tickets
Visit two of the most popular wildlife venues in the Cairns area with this combo admission to the Kuranda Koala Gardens and Birdworld. Aussie animals are renowned for various reasons—from adorable (koalas) to elusive (wombats). You’ll have the chance to see an array of wildlife. Some activities are an additional fee.
What to Expect
Your admission to Kuranda Koala Gardens introduces you to a variety of Australian animals, from freshwater crocodiles to kangaroos. See friendly wallabies, and get an up-close look at wombats, lazy and lovable creatures who aren’t often seen in the wild due to their shyness and burrowing habits. You also have the opportunity to see the rare Greater Bilby, the Northern Bettong, Mahogany Glider and more in the new ‘Nocturnal Wonders’ exhibit. 

At the Koala Gardens, you’ll receive your ticket for Birdworld, so head there next to experience a huge flock of free-flying birds. Within walking distance of the Koala Gardens, Birdworld is home to large aviary that mimics a rainforest habitat, where more than 80 species of native birds, some rare, fly among the lush landscape and water features. See birds like parrots, lorikeets and bowerbirds, and look for cassowaries, rarely seen in the wild. You might also spot international visitors like South American macaws.

Great Attraction

We enjoyed our time at the Koala Gardens. We went after lunch and had no problem with crowds. It was a damp day though. We listened to the talks and watched the wombat feeding which was great. We also went to the nocturnal house for...More

Wonderful visit

Kuranda Koala Gardens is a bit on the small side. However, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. But, bear in mind the following: Make sure you go early. I went around 9:10, a few minutes after it opened, and I was the only visitor for the...More

Go when skyrail is down for maintenance

What a lovely place! We had to drive up because the skyrail was down for maintenance and practically had the place to ourselves! Feeding the kangaroos and wallabies was so fun! The highlight was definitely holding a koala. So gentle and sweet. I highly recommend!...More

Held a koala - enough said

I had a very specific goal in mind when visiting Queensland, and that was to hold a koala bear. I came to Kuranda Koala Gardens just to do this and walked away super happy. Yes, it’s a lot of money to see a small zoo,...More
