This animal park is organized in four habitats with corresponding plants and animals. The Savannah is a relatively small room with lots of finches and other colorful birds. Like all the animals at the Wildlife habitat, they are used to people so you can watch them and take photoes from very close by. In addition to being fed the birds... More

Really good sanctuary - it makes you feel that you are really part of it. Breakfast with the Birds is worth it, not for the food, which is decidedly average, but for the bird life which is superb. A ticket gets you multi day entries which with the humid weather can be a godsend.

Wildlife Habitat was a great way to spend a few hours - the wildlife are not 'caged' but on display in an environment that allows them to move around freely, with boardwalks and paths for us to follow. Great to see the birds flying in a huge rainforest environment, and a great opportunity to see the crocs up close -... More

We loved our visit to Wildlife Habitat (2 adults and one 13 year old). Everything was great, but we particularly enjoyed feeding the kangaroos and wallabies in their open range area and watching the koala feeding and learning about their lives and seeing the cassowaries. The staff were all great too. A must if you're visiting Port Douglas.

We went for breakfast with the birds before exploring the different habitat displays. It was a good breakfast with something for everyone, adults and kids. There are bird displays during breakfast and you can pat the birds being displayed and have your picture taken with them. Then it's onto the different displays that are all themed on different habitats. The... More

The grounds of the habitat are well cared for and very picturesque, the breakfast was tasty and plentiful and the staff and animals were all very friendly! My husband and I are now both Elvis fans (the black cockatoo we met at breakfast - not the singer) and we loved feeding the wallabies and getting an opportunity to learn about,... More

We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon at the Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas. A highlight was the chance to hold a Koala and hand feed the kangaroos and wallabies. If you're in the Port Douglas area don't miss this experience.

The breakfast was rubbish compared to the cafes nearby but... More

Spent a few hours here on my first day in Port Douglas, the tour guides were fantastic and very informative about all of the animals and the habitats they live in as you walk through, well worth checking out once you get to Port Douglas.
