This is a very hands-on zoo. The array of wildlife to be seen is incredible, and I found myself interacting with it more than I thought I would. The kangaroo/wallaby area was a real treat being able to hand-feed these animals. I also enjoyed holding the lorikeet. This is well worth a visit for any trip to Port Douglas, especially... More

First visit, and overall experience was average compared with similar parks visited. Park looks like it needs to be updated, Grasslands area more like dirtlands, and parts of the park with little to no animal activity. Kudos to staff though who were helpful, friendly, with excellent knowledge about the wildlife.

Went here and had lunch with the birds, watched a crocodile feeding, held a baby fresh water crocodile and a huge cuddly koala, fed the wallabies, roos and birds. Great afternoon. Reasonably priced and fantastic informative staff

I went here recently and was surprised with how much contact I had with all the animals in the park. I was able to get close to the kangaroos and all the birds whilst also getting a picture taken with a Koala (Highlight). All the staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about all the animals in the park!

We went for breakfast with the birds, the breakfast was reasonably priced and very good. The wild life tour guide Billie was gorgeous very informed and a delight. The black cockatoo Elvis was a highlight.

This was way better than any zoo I've been to! Most of the animals were free roaming (in their sectioned off areas) and all you do is just walk through them and around them! We purchased food from the front desk and fed all the types of kangaroos and birds. They are very clever in starting you with the small... More

All the usual animals, but in a natural habitat. Enjoyed feeding the Roos and the wallabies. Don't really like zoos bit this one was quite natural and net covered rather than in door.

No disappointments. Its what you would expect from a preserve. Highlights... the Cassowary and the roaming Kangaroos.

We actually didn't see many kangaroos during our visit until we were at the Wildlife Habitat. Our kids (15 and 10 yrs old) loved feeding the tame 'roos here. The kangaroo enclosure is quite large and our kids enjoyed roaming and interacting with the kangaroos and wallabies. Not sure if you can do this at other zoos? The photo-taking opportunities... More
