Kuranda Koala Gardens are one of the very few places in Australia where you can hold a Koala for a souvenir photo (extra cost and conditions apply). Please note to ensure our koalas remain well rested, there is limited availability and daily capacity for our koala holding photos.

As an alternative, singles and small groups can buy a Koala Patting Photo. Individuals may also choose a Python Holding Photo.

For every photo purchased $2 goes to the North Queensland Wildlife Trust – for the conservation of native fauna, wildlife care and local habitats. Funds raised include protection and care for wild Koalas.

Please note all of our souvenir wildlife photo opportunities are subject to any COVID requirements which may be imposed by government authorities.
