This is one of the best wildlife attractions we've seen. So many birds and you can see them so close and yet they are able to fly around and breed as they would in the wild. Wonderful opportunity for kids to learn about wildlife and get up close. Also koalas, a huge croc and other reptiles. Worth a look.

If you are interested in birds and or marsupials, this is the place to visit. You walk right amongst them and can see some you will most likely not see in the wild, even if you go with a good guide. It took us several hours to fully explore and I highly recommend it either as an introduction or review.

This place is amazing. The amount of wildlife you see and the interaction you have with them is great. We got to see both of the cassowaries up close, as well as hand feeding kangaroos and wallabies. You get a return visit with your entry fee, and the kids loved it just as much the second time.

This zoo allows you to get up close and personal with koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, cassowaries, crocs and dozens of birds native to Far North Queensland. We hand fed a dozen kangaroos, wallabies and pademelons in the enclosure - and at $2 per feed bag they don't try to rip you off. This experience was exactly what we were after in... More

Loved going the Habitat and seeing all the different animals including koalas, kangaroos, and crocodiles plus more. My daughter even got to pet an emu (not sure the bird liked it though).

Visited this place on a sunday afternoon, such a wide variety of animals native to Australia. Defiantly worth a visit.

We have been here 3 times over the last 10 years as each time it has been a easy way to experience to view Australian wildlife. One downside has been the food available which is of poor quality.

Nice place. All the birds and wildlife live in natural surroundings and are so at home they breed. It was the best of all the tours and site that offered wildlife encounters that we experienced in our 5 week trip.

This is a great place for adults and children to get up close to australian wildlife. I noticed the staff were very friendly and happy to chat about all the animals and seemed very happy to be there. There are 3 areas all of which were great - I loved the feeding the kangaroos and cuddling a koala! It wasn't... More

This is a fantastic way to experience Australia's wildlife. They aren't in cages - the birds are flying all around you, and you can feed and pet the kangaroos and wallabies. There is also an opportunity to hold a koala, python, or baby crocodile. If you arrive when the tours are starting, you can tour each area of the habitat... More
