I had visited the Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas a few years ago while on a business trip and brought a friend along this time on a vacation trip. What a great time we both had! We had signed up for Lunch with the Lorikeets, which was fun. A couple of the lorikeets perched on his fingers while we were... More

Small but friendly place, nicely laid out and some excellent wildlife. Great for a cloudy afternoon.

Really glad we checked this place out on our last day in Port Douglas. It didn't feel too much like a zoo. I was able to feed kangaroos and even hold a Koala!

I loved my first time here so much that I brought my daughter along on my next visit. We started off with Breakfast With The Birds, did the behind the scenes tour and the night tour, all of which I had done on my own on my last visit. I enjoyed it just as much the second time around and... More

I took the Port Douglas Bus service ($56 return) with hotel pickup to cruise the groovy retail and restaurant strip. Outside Rattle and Hum you catch the local bus ($6) for the drive to the Wildlife Habitat ($33 plus $2 food bag - the best $2 investment ever!) I saw my first tree kangaroo and cassowary - I'm Australian but... More

April 2014 - Port Douglas We arrived early for Breakfast with the Birds, and had a very nice choice of food, buffet style. While enjoying our breakfast, the friendly staff came around to introduce us to some of their parrots and update us on 'meet and greet' talks - birds, koalas, snakes, reptiles, marsupials, and crocodiles. The facility is well... More

great place, cheaper than the zoos etc but a far better experience if you like walking among the rainforest and seeing wildlife, not overpriced like some Australian Zoo's (hint hint)

The Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas are definatly a visit worth! I had a great time there. You come really close to all the animals and you see them in their normal surroundings instead of seing them in a cage. You can see all the animals are well in these sorroundings. Visit it! You can also handfeed the kangaroos and... More
