I visited this wildlife habitat two years ago and it is still a fantastic way to spend half a day. It is very well laid out and it's nice to have breakfast or lunch with the birds. For lunch, on offer was a buffet with various meats (including chicken and barramundi), some salads, fresh fruit, tea and coffee, and an... More

This is a smaller wildlife refuge, we spent a quality half day here. If you are not going to Brisbane for the larger wildlife refuge, then this is a must stop if you want to hold a Koala or feed Kangaroos!

Recommend this experience - exceptional service from Josh to make us feel comfortable and guide us to our picnic setting which was wonderfully set in the Rainforest Habitat. Chef delivered a delicious array of gourmet produce including exotic fruits all of which were explained in detail to enhance the experience. If you are looking for something special and memorable, this... More

As this was part of a tour we only had about 45 mins to look around but it was well worth it. From owls to kangaroos which you can feed with food from the front desk at a small cost to crocs and a lot of birdlife. Staff were very helpful and would recommend a visit to the Habitat. Wish... More

Spent half a day at this exquisite small wild life park. The themed habitats were superb and we managed to hold a Koala and feed wallabies. Staff were enthusiastic and friendly and at times we had the place to ourselves. Saw native aussie animals in a lovely environment which the animals and birds seemed to enjoy aswell.

Spent several hours here, beginning with breakfast with the birds. Very well laid out and organized. Loved the birds and the kangaroos and the emu. Fed some animals and watched the crocs being fed. The stork nest and baby storks were one of the highlights of our day. All of the staff members were knowledgable and friendly.

A beautiful interactive and compact setting. Kickstart your day holding parrots, and gazing at owls and storks over breakfast. Sounds much better than starting a day in traffic on the way to work. By following their presentation trail you won't be disappointed. A current highlight are the baby storks on a ginormous nest. Watch mum and dad being fed. Then... More

We were a little sceptical visiting the Wildlife Habitat given we love seeing nature in it's natural environment having visited Kenya,Borneo & Canada but as soon as we arrived, any concerns immediately disappeared. We had an amazing day getting up close to so much wildlife & the koalas, crocs & feeding the many wallabies & kangaroos were amongst our highlights.... More

We enjoyed visiting the animals at the wildlife habitat, and if it wasn't for the wildlife we didn't plan on coming across our time would have been perfect! We came across a lot of spiders, and I'm not talking about one or two... There would have to have been thousands. And you have no choice but to walk under a... More
