I visited to see some of the wildlife I hadn't seen on my rainforest tour. This is an excellent place for children with you inside the enclosure with all the birds. The wallabies are very friendly too and happy to come up to you for some food and a pat.

We went to the Wildlife Habitat mainly to have breakfast with the birds. The breakfast was good, with lots of choices at the buffet and it was all you can eat. Combined with the fee of entering the habitat, this was a good deal and funds the care of the animals so is also for a great cause. We were... More

Better than expected. Gives you the chance to be very close to a great range of birds and local wildlife. Well set up with friendly knowledgeable staff. Definitely worth a visit.

Great to get amongst and feed the wallabies, kangaroos and birds. Lots of interactive displays and opportunities to get up close with native wildlife. Best in the morning, you can have breakkie with the birds and its not too hot.

the guided walks are led by peole with a passion for the animals and birds in Habitat and each time we visit we feel we learn more new and interesting facts. Whilst within a fenced compound it does not feel like visiting a zoo as it is clear animals are there for rehabilitation and have plenty of space

The Wildlife Habitat at Port Douglas isn't all about Cassowaries but they were an added bonus. The new cassowary walk is wonderful. All the birds and animals are in their own environment which is spread over 8 acres of Wetlands, Rainforest and Grasslands. The only breeding pair of Black Necked Storks in captivity were nesting with 3 eggs and were... More

My husband and I tested the breakfast with the birds. Service was great as upon seeing that I was pregnant the waitress or hostess directed me towards the more comfortable seats. The food itself is similar as to what you would find in a hotel. I enjoyed the fresh fruits and toasts while my husband had a cooked breaky with... More
