Koala & Wildlife Park
The Koala and Wildlife Park allows visitors to experience another facet of Australia and get up close and personal with Australian wildlife.
Wander at your leisure through our Wildlife Park where a series of elevated boardwalks provide uninterrupted views of various Australian animals and reptiles.
Handfeed the free roaming kangaroos and wallabies in the landscaped gardens, observe the endangered cassowary and Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo and see Neville and Dennis, the only Tasmanian Devils in Cairns! Sneak a peek at Juliet our sneaky wombat, meet Ned and Kelly the Alpine Dingoes and meet Ricky the cheeky Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo. Enter our reptile house and see a range of pythons and lizards and see the iconic Australian koala.
The star attraction of our Wildlife Park is “Jack the Ripper”, a 5 metre saltwater crocodile weighing at 650kgs with a reputation of killing 12 of his girlfriends in times gone by. Jack is kept in his own enclosure with an elevated platform perfect for your safe and close-up viewing.
On the other side of Jack is our fresh water enclosure where a bask of juvenile crocodiles, turtles and lizards sun themselves and casually swim around.
Time your visit to enjoy a variety of Wildlife Presentations that are delivered throughout the day, including Crocodile Feeding, Dingo Enrichment and Feeding the Macropods. Remember that Wildlife Park Entry includes multiple re-entry on the day of your visit – so come back as many times as you like.
