Kuranda Wildlife Experience

Kuranda’s wildlife attractions provide the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s most loved and iconic animals. We’re talking cuddly koalas, cute quokkas, inquisitive kangaroos and wallabies, a kaleidoscope of beautiful butterflies, monster sized moths, gem-coloured parrots, rainbow lorikeets, frogs, turtles, ducks, freshwater crocodiles and so much more! You can even get up close and personal with the endangered Southern Cassowary. While all of these creatures do not reside in the same place, the Kuranda Wildlife Experience package gives you access to all of them – and more – combining entry to three wildlife attractions, for one great price. Kuranda Koala Gardens, Birdworld Kuranda and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary are Kuranda’s best wildlife attractions and combined, they make the Kuranda Wildlife Experience. They’re all located within convenient walking distance of each other, in the Kuranda Heritage Markets, which also has an on-site restaurant, markets stalls and amenities.

Each of these attractions provides authentic engagement opportunities. From the large, enclosed aviaries of Birdworld Kuranda and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, where birds and butterflies fly through the air around you, to the free roaming kangaroos, wallabies and pademelons at Kuranda Koala Gardens, which you can hand feed. Want to cuddle or pat a koala, you can do this too at the Kuranda Koala Gardens for a unique souvenir photo and memory (conditions apply, extra cost). Each of the attractions are open 7 days a week and tickets can be purchased online or at Kuranda Koala Gardens. There is no minimum or maximum time at any of the attractions, so allow the whole day for one amazing Kuranda Wildlife Experience.
