We purchased the ticket that got us into Koala Gardens, Birdworld and the Butterfly Garden. These are three separate areas. We enjoyed each of them. They are not huge zoos. We went straight to the Koala Gardens and we were there by ourselves. They let...More

We visited Koala Gardens and had a lovely time. It was one of the better wildlife places we visited in Australia. You get the opportunity to hold a Koala which was fun!

With a three attraction ticket it is slightly cheaper than three times one ticket, provided you want to see all three attractions. For having your pacture taken with a (non-sleeping) Koala it costs another AUD 24. The wallabies are totally overfed. First the zoo gives...More

Kolas looked very sleepy. Told they sleep 20+ hours per day. For $25, you get to hold a kola and have several pictures taken for free

One if not the only place that will allow you to cuddle with a koala. Sweet surprise that I almost overlooked in Kuranda. No lines, few people at the gardens. Saw the nocturnal display, fed a kangaroo type animal, many crocs or alligators (I can’t...More

You pay nearly 20$ to get in and then another 20$ to get your photo taken. There are just 4 Koalas to see, some crocodiles, turtles and kangaroo. Overall extremely small, didn’t expect it for the price. I’d only go there, if you cannot get...More

Yes, they accept credit card. Not sure if you can buy the tickets in London, not sure what you mean with here. But you can get a ticket for the train and the zoo in Kuranda when you are there .
