Kids loved the venom zoo, some educational info and practical life advise.. but mostly just getting to hold the snakes. Cost was on par with entry to all the other attractions in Kuranda.

At first we did not think there was a lot to see, but when we came back up from the cellar we were given a very informative talk and viewing of various snakes and spiders. The place could do with a bit of makeover, but...More

A business makeover/ overhaul is required but the information given was great . As a herpetologist myself I found this very informative. Great for the kids to get to hold the snakes .

This place charges way too much for what it delivers. The photo with the python is the only thing that makes it worth it. It's $11 per person or $50 for a family ticket. I would say don't waste your money here.

We saw this as we drive by, so stopped in and enjoyed seeing some very cool animals. The magnificent tree frogs are just that! The Taipan was the biggest we've ever seen. And the tribute to Steve Irwin was good to see. Also got to...More
