After visiting the wildlife dome in cairns and being disappointed this place made up for it. We took a photo with a koala and fed the Kangaroos. My husband loved feeding the Kangaroos this was a once in a lifetime opportunity we can't do that in LA. It is very organized and we could have easily spent a whole day... More

We are staying in Cairns on a day trip to Daintree, and decided to call in for a coffee at Port Douglas. Wildlife Habitat has a large sign 'Wet Tropics Information Centre'. It is not. It is a cheap tourist trap with a few brochures and staff who just want you to pay to feed the crocodiles!

This is a NOT to be missed experience in Port Douglas that I suspect lots of people miss due to the many other competing activities. It was one of the highlights of our time in Port Douglas. Sera, one of the zoologists, spent time teaching us about the Koalas and Crocodiles. You should take at least a couple hours to... More

My husband and I loved this place for the photographic opportunities it offered. With birds roaming freely and other wildlife in open enclosures, we were able to take some excellent shots at very close range without fences or cages getting in the way. It wasn't so crowded with tourists that we had to wait for everyone to move on before... More

We bought a one day ticket which gave us 5 consecutive days entry. It was very reasonably priced for 5 days compared to the exorbitant prices we paid for other attractions around Cairns/Port Douglas. My 3 and 6 year old children loved the Wildlife Habitat as did I and my husband. The kids particularly loved hand feeding the incredibly friendly... More

We visited to have breakfast with the birds. The birds were beautiful as were all the animals we saw. The breakfast, however, did not live up to what we had been led to expect - so very disappointing. The staff wee friendly and informative so learnt quite a lot from them

Totally enclosed wildlife habitats from outback desert to rain forest and more. plenty of chances to get up close to native wildlife and even feed a few, or be a meal for a 4 meter croc.

birds, birds everywhere. Great place for a day visit where you can get up close to the wildlife and you can even hold a koala. Really enjoyed this place

The main area is huge with a restaurant... More

We went to breakfast with the birds, at AUD52 each. Food was good, but think it should include nice barista coffee, not just the old brewed and stewed stuff. At the breakfast there wasn't much in the way of birds, and one girl who did have birds to hold wasnt that interested in her customers. There were a few birds... More
