Kuranda Koala Gardens and Birdworld Admission Tickets
From US$23.75
Visit two of the most popular wildlife venues in the Cairns area with this combo admission to the Kuranda Koala Gardens and Birdworld. Aussie animals are renowned for various reasons—from adorable (koalas) to elusive (wombats). You’ll have the chance to see an array of wildlife. Some activities are an additional fee.
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.

A small zoo

I had a birdworld and koala gardens ticket, which made the price per visit very reasonable. Koala gardens was small, but at one point the animals walk around freely and you can get very close to them, which was great. You can also take a...More

Feed the Koalas

One of the best children’s attractions in Kuranda. The children can watch the dingoes and crocodiles, view the reptiles, feed the kangaroos or hold a koala. Most overseas visitors wish to see a kangaroo and a koala and a large number request a photo with...More
