Zoo To You HQ
Zoo To You HQ is an up close wildlife experience, right in the heart of Cairns.The perfect activity for kids of all ages with daily shows and photo sessions involving crocs, pythons and more. We recently took our two kids there and they loved it. With a good value yearly pass on offer, it really is a great addition to activities for kids in Cairns.
The zoo holds a good range of reptiles and insects, turtles and fish. There is a show area where the zoo keeper will give an excellent and well informed presentation regularly. There is some activity tables including a magnifying glass and a touch screen computer to use. There is even a corner for crafting or book reading.
Zoo To You started up by offering a variety of Australian native wildlife, marine creatures and insects brought to you for parties or as an educational visit to schools and daycares. This is actually where my son first encountered zoo to you. We have since attended a party where zoo to you gave a fantastic presentation of a number of different animals including a baby crocodile, a snake and a sugar glider. Most of the kids were aged 2-5 and were thoroughly entertained. It is great for kids to be able to touch the animals as well as see them.
