Cairns Night Zoo

Posted on April 29, 2009 by

If you are looking for a great Aussie night out then the Cairns Night Zoo is for you!  Last night I got to experience this wonderful night activity.  On arrival at 7.00 pm we were warmly greeted with a choice of beer wine or soft drink and then sat down to an Aussie BBQ.  The choice was great steak, sausages, chicken and fish plus a variety of sales and delicious desserts, which made the lady sitting opposite me very happy to find out pavlova was on the deserts menu!    The food was fantastic with plenty of variety and plenty of it!

Whilst you are finishing desert a resident musician strums up a few tunes to get you in the mood.  After dinner our guide called us all up to gather a torch for a spotlighting tour through the zoo.  As we are starting off on our adventure you can here a few of the animals calling.  Our first stop was to sit down and learn about the cane toad and what a nuisance they have become.  Next out comes Dusk who is a beautiful white owl. She delighted the audience as she flew over our heads!

We were then off to the Koala enclosure and if you are lucky to visit the zoo on a Tuesday or Thursday night you can have your photo taken holding a Koala (for a small fee).  I of course could not give up this opportunity.

After the koalas it was then time to visit the not so cute and friendly a chance to touch a snake then watch the crocodiles get a feed.  As much as I have seen a few crocs they still fascinate me as to how prehistoric they are. 

We were then off to meet up with the swaggie in the kangaroo enclosure for a spot of Billy Tea and Damper by the campfire.

After the tour it was then back to the deck to have another drink and enjoy a bush dance or two.  Old favourites such as the Hockey Pockey with and animal twist!
This is a great night out for families and for people from overseas and for anyone who just loves animals and a bit of fun!
