The Cairns Night Zoo - A great Aussie night out! Come and see what the Aussies get up to after dark! Come and enjoy a delicious barbecue of steak, chicken, fresh prawns, steamed rice and vegetables, salads and desserts. Your night also includes complimentary beers, wines and soft drinks.... more
After dinner, the guided spotlighting tour is a great experience! Meet some of Australia's favourite animals - at their place. See crocodiles, koalas, owls, and
other furry creatures. During the tour sample Billy Tea and Damper around the campfire with the authentic 'Swaggie' and the tame kangaroos. You will have the kangaroos eating out of your hand. Back at the entertainment area exchange the spotlight for a cold beer or wine (or two) and join in with the resident bush musician. Time to learn some great Aussie folk songs and dance with the 'zoo folk'. Nothing too serious here and it's great fun for all ages and nationalities.
Transfers are available from Cairns, Beaches and Port Douglas. Numbers are limited so pre booking is absolutely essential. This excellent evening activity operates every Monday to Thursday and Saturday night from 7.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m.... less
