Kuranda Koala Gardens is a wildlife attraction in the world-famous Kuranda rainforest village. Situated in the Kuranda Heritage Markets, the wildlife park is home to an amazing array of Australian animals, including wallabies, wombats, quokkas, kangaroos, gliders, freshwater crocodiles, and so much more! What we lack in size, we make up for in cuteness.
We are one of the few places in Australia where you can hold a Koala for a souvenir photo (at an extra cost). Next, have your photo taken with a large python for a small additional fee. Our couples’ photos are very popular as well. The recently opened Aussie Bush Collection has a fascinating combination of marsupials and reptiles, all living harmoniously. And let’s not forget the Long-nosed Potoroos, Bearded Dragons, and Blue Tongue Lizards!
