Top Tips

Buy tickets to Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas online here! Port Douglas' Wildlife Habitat is an excellent, reasonably-priced showcase of the diversity of Aussie and tropics animal life with enough of its own interesting quirks and offerings to set it apart from other standard zoos in the bigger cities. Featuring a huge and diverse range of flora and fauna, the attraction offers the chance to truly get very close to a wide range of birds and other animal life; it puts a real emphasis on getting “hands-on” with the animals and encouraging interactivity that is always a hit with the kids and visitors from abroad in particular. All your essential Aussie wildlife staples are covered here – standards such as kangaroos, koalas and snakes are interspersed with other species that are more representative of Tropical QLD. The crocodiles in particular are a highlight as many of them are huge and watching them being fed is quite a thrill, while other varieties of animals like cassowaries, pythons and tree kangaroos are all living reminders of Queensland’s natural diversity.

One major point in Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas' favour is that the animals on offer are given quite a large degree of freedom; their enclosures are far more open than your average zoo, and it's all designed with a natural and organic layout that helps to maintain its feeling of immersion in the rainforest surrounds. Feeding, patting, and otherwise interacting with the animals is encouraged, while regular talks and presentation by the friendly staff are held at regular intervals throughout the day with highlights such as reptile presentations and croc feeding highlights. It's also obvious that the animals are all happy and well cared for - a fact which goes a long way towards further enjoying this kind of attraction.

Simply awesome! An up close experience for adults & kids - we held birds, a koala and crocodile (extra cost but worth it) and patted and fed so many friendly kangaroo’s the kids were in heaven. Brekky was a great addition, it was an all round great way to spend the morning.

Very nice habitat and cool animals
Amit Kotiger 2 years ago

Very nice habitat and cool animals. The birds and wallabies are free which means you can get close to them. Unfortunately, part was being renovated when we visited due to cyclone damage but we still saw everything. Visit if you have some free time in Port Douglas or driving down to Cairns.

My partner and I decided to visit the wildlife centre on our way home from Port Douglas
Mikayla Goodman 2 years ago

My partner and I decided to visit the wildlife centre on our way home from Port Douglas. It was cute watching all the animals and how they would interact with people but just maintenance I think brung down the experience for us. Sometimes it can’t be helped but it just didn’t look inviting. I think it might be time for some restructuring on the wooden plate forms as they are just deteriorated. But overall we did enjoy our experience, it’s just time for some cleaning up.

Great range of animals and Kisangani loves it
Ramzi Semaan 3 years ago

Great range of animals and Kisangani loves it. The staff guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend if you have young kids. Does not take long to tour 2 hours at most. Koala talk is the main attraction. There are birds in the cafeteria which you take pics with. The highlights for me were the koala photo and the crocodile feeding. It's a small place good for short visits, especially with children.

Nice compact wildlife park
Conway Chung 3 years ago

Nice compact wildlife park. Has different sections depending on the type of environment. Easy to walk through with a decent variety of animals. Friendly kangaroos and wallabies allowed themselves to be petted and hand fed. Helpful and friendly staff.

I wish we lived closer
Lisa Kidman 6 years ago

I wish we lived closer, we did this on our last day before heading back to Melbourne. It was amazing, beautiful and the guide was so very informative, birds and wildlife were amazing and the lunch was nice too!

The Breakfast with the Birds option is great value. You receive a full selection of hot foods, tropical fruit buffet, juices, freshly baked breads and more. You also receive free guided tours of the wetland environments.
