Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Cairns Night Zoo Safari and Barbecue Dinner submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
Dinner was very good. Had a good mix of other tour folks and it helped make the night even better. Loved the free pickup/drop off from the hotel. Lots of interaction with animals including the opportunity to hold a Koala and pet Kangaroos. If you like zoo's and want to see the animals up close, this is definitely the tour for you.Reviewed by: Verne C, April 2013

Checking the itinerary it might seem that this could turn out a little disappointing.
However the sheer level of professionalism, enthusiasm, and pure comittment by the staff to make sure you "enjoyed" your night made this for me one of the highlights of my extremely enjoyable stay in Cairns.
* Food was great (chicken especially!)
* Drinks were freeflowing
* Staff knew their stuff and responded well to awkward customers like myself who wanted to know "more about the animals"
Go with the flow and enjoy the night :).Reviewed by: Howard Gray, United Kingdom, December 2011
Super fun night at the Cairns Zoo! I got to hold a koala, hand feed kangaroos and see a bunch of other cool Australian animals. Dinner was good, and it was really nice that drinks were included in the price.Reviewed by: kellythepea, USA, September 2011
