The Koala and Wildlife Park within RainForeStation is an awesome place to hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, see rare Australian wildlife like wombats, Tasmanian devils and more!
There are only a few places where you can hold koala’s in Cairns, and the Koala & Wildlife park happens to be one of them. We’d recommend if you visit RainForeStation, you arrange your schedule so that you visit them first thing when the lines are short, the Koalas are “fresh” and the employees haven’t been dealing with tourists all day. We had a great time with our koala and the staff was wonderful!
There are three “experiences” within RainForeStation and you have to make sure that the package you purchase covers the Koala & Wildlife Park if you want to have close-up encounters with Australian wildlife.
