Wildlife Attractions, Tours & Tropical Zoo

Wildlife Attractions, Tours & Zoos

Cairns is located between two of the world's most beautiful land and sea sanctuaries so there are a number of amazing and truly spectacular Wildlife Experiences that you can take part in. Meet koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, exotic fish, endangered bird species and colourful butterflies.

Start your day with a trip to the Tropical Zoo for breakfast and watch the wildlife frolic in their habitats and then at night visit the Cairns Night Zoo for a BBQ dinner where you can dine with kangaroos under the stars.

While you're up Far North Queensland you must take time to visit with a couple of crocodiles. They're big up here and offer a unique and a little scary croc experience!
