Great place - would go back if I were ever in Port Douglas again ! We particularly loved the rainforest section which was netted and well planted so birds flew about freely but could be seen easily at the various feeding stations.

Loved watching my two daughters walk amongst the wildlife. They loved it from feeding kangaroos (and geese that stole the kangaroos food) to seeing the koalas, emus, crocs etc the list goes on. Staff were great. One staff member Justin was great at explaining about the wildlife to the kids he spoke with such passion and knowledge the girls loved... More

We visited just to have breakfast with the birds. Fantastic experience. The rest of the park and wildlife was an experience.... How lovely to feed the Kangaroos and wallabies with the ducks and swamp hens following. All the staff are committed to the conservation effort. Keep up the good work!

We loved this place so much, we came back for a second day. (Your ticket is good for a few days if you have breakfast or lunch with the birds - which you really must do - the buffet was excellent and you get to hold the bird (great photo op). We took all of the guided tours of the... More

Great for little kids, took our 18month old grandson, he loved it could touch and feed most animals. You can also listen to tours. Have lunch in the cafe section.. Very enjoyable day

You dont have the feeling of being in a zoo where the animals are just "there" Loved that u could interact with the Kangaroos and also loved the koalas... Wonderful birds everywhere and very nice staff!

Imagine the disappointment of traveling all the way to Australia and finding out there are laws in Sydney and Melbourne against taking your picture while holding a Koala Bear. That's on par with going to Disney World and never seeing Micky Mouse! Now imagine finding out in Portb Douglas that this wildlife habitat ALLOWS pictures holding Koala Bears. Well that's... More
