Also visit Australia's first walk-through 'Reptile House' and see pythons and other reptiles roaming free. Meet tame wallabies, see wombats, freshwater crocodiles, lizards and more. Visit the 'Pioneer Shed' that depicts some of the early history of European settlement in the Kuranda region.... more
A free shuttle bus operates from Skyrail and Kuranda Scenic Train Stations.
It's a great attraction for those with limited time in the region, (if you have plenty of time, they also recommend visits to Cairns Tropical Zoo and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures). Kuranda Koala Gardens is also part of the 'Kuranda Wildlife Experience'. This combines Kuranda Koala Gardens, Birdworld and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary.
These are ideal for independent travellers and small groups.... less
