This place was amazing! The tour guides were amazing. We learned a lot about all the animals there, the different plants/tropical trees and the aboriginals. It was the best time! I highly recommend visiting this place.

Clean, healthy animals. Very well maintained property and great information. We were not after a big buffet lunch so we got a sandwich for a very reasonable price. Friendly staff. Overall a great experience

This is a wonderful Nature Park in the heart of beautiful Kuranda. There is plenty to enjoy from dingoes, wallabies, pademelons, and the gorgeous Tree Kangaroo. Be mindful the Wombat and Tasmanian Devil sleep at lunchtime so go early or mid afternoon. You can check...More
