What you can expect
Spend a day at the award-winning Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas and enjoy up-close and personal encounters with some of Australia's most exotic flora and fauna. Get great insight into the lives of these wonderful critters, ranging from koalas and kangaroos to crocodiles and tropical birds.
Explore 4 different environments—each home to unique residents—that mirror natural habitats and focus heavily on conservation. Start in the wetlands, where you can go behind the scenes to learn about wading birds and meet native icons like the kangaroo and the cuddly koala. Next, move on to the rainforest, where you can head high into the canopy and keep an eye out for the shy and endangered cassowary, a flightless bird, as it forages for food in the undergrowth.
Finally, discover the savannah here you can come face-to-face with an enormous saltwater crocodile as it basks in the sun and take the opportunity to hand-feed a friendly wallaby. If you want, choose to dine among tropical birds by adding breakfast or lunch to your experience.
