About Cairns Tropical Zoo, Cairns

If asked, you’ll be more than prompt to name all the animals found in the African wilderness, but can you name the animals of Australia? The best place to find the answers- Cairns Tropical Zoo. The 10 acre zoo is a little piece of Aussie land for you right there. With tame kangaroos you can feed, koalas you can cuddle and snakes you can handle, the zoo is like a tiny piece of paradise. Featuring the prime wildlife of the land, the crocodiles, emus, dingbats and wombats are just some of the treats in addition to a walk-in bird aviary.

  • Easily accessed via local bus (Palm Grove); though crossing highway for return bus is dangerous! Zoo is small but packed with great variety and very friendly staff. Their experience is obvious as the activities are spaced out so you don't feel rushed. We availed of snake show, koala hugging, crocodile feeding, koala/wombat lecture, kangaroo feeding, and the most amazing bird show (important: no sudden movements; mind that child!). The koala hugging is special because this is not available in other Australian states. Cairns Tropical Zoo participates in a careness scheme that makes it possible, ensuring the koalas are not overworked. The zoo charges a fair price for their official of you and a koala, with a complimentary additional photo taken with your mobile. It is the cutest image ever. Food services are adequate, but could be better offering, quality and pricing. But sadly we learned that Cairns Tropical Zoo is set for closure in 2016, as no one has come forward to purchase it as an ongoing concern. Will probably mean relocation to owner's other parks in Kuranda and/or other zoos. So come here while you can!

  • A very nice little zoo with mostly Australian animals. Unfortunately, it is apparently closing permanently as of today (1 April 2016, no joke!). Animals are being relocated to other zoos in the area.

  • The best place to get close to Australian animals -- yes, better than Sydney zoo! If you want to feed a kangaroo or pet a nice, friendly koala in a friendly, informal setting -- this is the place. Lots of koalas (that are active within meters from you -- not at a distance), kangaroos and wallaby pretty much roam the territory, crocodiles within a few meters from you -- all very well done with a good price and friendly personnel on top of it.

  • Loved it. By far one of the best zoos ive ever seen!! It may be small but its awesome.

  • Loved watching the crocs getting fed ! & the free flight bird show was brilliant ! If you get too hot , you can return free within 2 days of your visit. ..which was good for us,as the bird show had been cancelled on our initial visit. we were able to return 2 days later. Well worth a visit!
