Kuranda Wildlife Park- Meet Our Wildlife

Rainforestation Nature Park is the leading Cairns attraction based in Kuranda. Our Kuranda Wildlife Park is home to an abundance of iconic Australian animals, including koalas, kangaroos, dingoes, snakes, Estaurine Crocodiles and more!

You can meet the endangered Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo and Southern Cassowary, both of which are endangered and endemic to Tropical North Queensland.

Our Koala and Wildlife Park allows you to get up close and personal with our animals- you can even hand-feed our friendly wallabies and kangaroos! We believe education is the best way to ensure the longevity of all these species.

Our wildlife keepers are dedicated, experienced and highly trained. Many are educated through the Careers Training Centre, our sister company.

We offer guided wildlife presentations throughout the day, which are the perfect chance to learn more about some of Australia’s most iconic species. These keeper-led presentations take a closer look at our koalas, wombat, Southern Cassowary and more.

You can even catch a crocodile feeding show! Just ask our friendly reservation team for the feeding time upon arrival at the park.
