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!!

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

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: 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.

We took our kids and three grand kids to this zoo and really loved it! We were able to pet and feed kangaroos and pet koalas and snakes as well. They had four different show that were all great as well. I would definitely recommend this zoo for both adults and kids.
