Cairns Tropical Zoo


Wildlife Tours

A visit to the tropical north wouldn’t be complete without seeing some of Australia’s fantastic wildlife up close. Just 20 minutes north of the city at Palm Cove, Cairns Tropical Zoo has fabulous presentations including free flight birds, giant saltwater crocodiles and stunning snakes. . There are numerous opportunities during the day to get close, touch, feel, and make some new animal friends. .

Hand feed the pelicans, hand feed the kangaroos, there’s just so much to see and do! Souvenir 'Cuddle a koala' photos are available for an extra cost

Why not plan your visit to include breakfast or lunch. “Breakfast Time at the Zoo” commences every day from8.30am. Enjoy bacon and eggs or scrumptious Belgian Waffles on the relaxing cafe deck in the company of some of the local wildlife and their keeper.


Captain Cook Highway, Palm Cove, Palm-Cove, 4879
