If you want a picture with koala then this is the right place. You can hold the koala in your hand and take pictures with your camera and professional shot by them as well.

I can never get enough of watching these cute animals! Just to observe their faces and cumbersome ways is sleeping in trees. The photographing of cuddling a koala is carefully monitored and worth the experience. This is a small intimate zoo with crocs, wallabies (and...More

All the animals were really friendly to pat. The best part to me is to be able to cuddle or pat a real koala to see what they feel like that was so amazing to be able to cuddle and feel one in my arms.

Yes, they accept credit card. Not sure if you can buy the tickets in London, not sure what you mean with here. But you can get a ticket for the train and the zoo in Kuranda when you are there .
