We have previously visited this place twice, some years ago. However on this visit, we felt that the building has been let go and certainly there is work going on rejuvenating the grounds, but it does feel tired. I felt that quite a bit of money needs to be spent to renew the feeling, as the atmosphere has also fallen... More

only place in n.queensland/northern territory to get to hold and take picture with a koala. came 10ish, small crowd but I think the 9am slot would have been less people. I researched this specifically and found on this forum this habitat for being able to hold koalas. they did not allow you to use your own camera another disappointment is... More

We had breakfast with the birds including Elvis the cockatiel, Bobo the magpie goose and two little frog mouths to name just a few. Then we did a couple of guided tours which were fascinating and we finally saw a live Cassowary. We also saw a male black stork sitting on his eggs. Too many beautiful things to lists here..... More

We did the breakfast with the birds. The food was lovely for a $16 buffet. The park wasn't huge, but definitely big enough. Our 19 month old loved running around and was able to feed the kangaroos. We also got to hold a koala and a crocodile. You could also choose to hold a snake if you wanted to. These... More

We decided to go here to kill time on our last day before our flight and weren't expecting much to be honest. We got a really pleasant surprise. There was a great selection of animals, laid out in a very visitor friendly way with the minimum of barriers between the animals and visitors. We enjoyed the reptile demo and got... More

We decided to do Breakfast With The Birds and we really enjoyed it. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was a usual hot... More

Highly recommend this attraction to families, especially with little ones. Easy to push a stroller around and for babies to get close enough that they can interact with the animals. The breakfast with the birds was also a lot of fun. There is one cheeky bird who is definitely not shy to make this a breakfast with the birds not... More

This was the 3rd time we have returned to Wildlife Habitat. If you go for Breakfast with the birds you get free return access for the rest of your stay and we always return at least twice. Again the experience of having these beautiful, birds and animals come and interact with you each with their own individual personality was a... More
