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.

Traveller Tips

You can also feed some of the animals, if they choose to accept your offering :D Birdworld was a lot more fun as the birds fly around freely and perch on you without fear.

Both parks were great! We truly enjoyed the birds the most. It was cool having the birds eat from your hands and sit on your shoulders!
Beautiful animal parks 🐨🦜💜

We went when it was pouring down rain, but still a good experience. We got to feed the kangaroos which was daunting but they’re actually really friendly. Kuranda village also has lots of great things to see and do after.

Delighted to see your excellent feedback Beverly.

The bird Sanctuary was splendid. There were birds of various species flying around in a wonderful free environment and tons of interaction with many of them. The koala area or zoo was limited.

Melissa B, Apr 2017
The Koala Gardens is basically a tiny version of every other Australian zoo i.e., only a couple of each popular Aussie animal, nothing special or different there. It was underwhelming at best. Birdworld was neat but tiny, and they charged extra for a bag of food to feed the birds, which was ridiculous for what they charge to get in. It was about a 20 minute activity that they charged more than 20 for. Basically, it wasn't really worth the price, but it was something different and made for a couple cute photos.
