See some of Australia’s most unique animals up close and learn all about them. Situated in the heart of Kuranda, just a short 25-minute drive away from our Trinity Beach Cairns Apartments, Kuranda Koala Gardens will delight and fascinate you.

Kuranda Koala Gardens is Kuranda’s newest wildlife attraction. It is part of the Freeman Family owned and operated Wildlife Tropical North Queensland Group. Other wildlife experiences under this banner include Cairns Night Zoo, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Cairns Tropical Zoo.

Meet the equally fascinating freshwater crocodiles. Encounter kangaroos and wallabies such as swamp wallabies, parma wallabies, eastern grey kangaroos, and red legged pademelons among others. Enjoy a unique up close experience with pythons when you enter their domain in Australia's first “Walk through Snake House”. See playful wombats as well as lizards, monitors, and other reptiles.

Kuranda Koala Gardens is open every day. Experience an animal encounter you won’t forget.
