Koala Experience

Palm Beach Zoo Koala Experience

Go on an Outback safari, meeting several Australian animals along the way!  You will have the opportunity to give treats to our eucalyptus pollinators, Lorikeets, and maybe even catch a glimpse of our elusive Tawny Frogmouth, Relish.  Then, you'll visit our koalas, Ellin and Sydney, and see these amazing animals up close.  

 Please note: Due to Australian government regulations, guests are not permitted to hold or touch the koalas. The wellbeing of the animals is always our top priority. The animals are given the choice to participate in the Animal Experiences. They do choose to participate the majority of the time, however, if they choose to not take part, an alternative experience or refund will be given on a case-by-case basis.
