About Us

Wild Kuranda and Kuranda Life are the creation of the Freeman Family, owners and operators of Kuranda Koala Gardens and Birdworld Kuranda in the Heritage Markets.

The Freemans have a long-standing family connection with Kuranda Village, through both the Timber Cutters and Queensland Rail. They are passionate advocates for this rainforest jewel and have been operating in and promoting Kuranda Village since 2002.

As pioneers of the North Queensland Tourism Industry, the Freemans have been creating and operating their unequalled wildlife parks since 1980. They are also owners of the world-famous Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures.
