great place, cheaper than the zoos etc but a far better experience if you like walking among the rainforest and seeing wildlife, not overpriced like some Australian Zoo's (hint hint)

The Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas are definatly a visit worth! I had a great time there. You come really close to all the animals and you see them in their normal surroundings instead of seing them in a cage. You can see all the animals are well in these sorroundings. Visit it! You can also handfeed the kangaroos and... More

The habitat was a neat place to see a big mix of animals in one place. We loved feeding the kangaroos and wallabies. We had a good breakfast and enjoyed the birds. Our highlight was to hold a Koala but only warn that he did poop and pee on us. Still worth it!

A great wildlife sanctuary for families, singles and couples. "Breakfast with a birds" is recommended, as it was a great experience (buffet spread, hot and cold dishes, and sharing your dining area with some magnificent birds to get up close and friendly with, lots of photo opportunities). Then there is a plethora of other stuff to see, crocodiles, kangaroos, koalas,... More

This is a marvellous place. It allows the visitor to get up close and personal with all the animals and birds. I'm always amazed how they can cram so much into such a relatively small space

Had a very relaxing time here - it was great introducing our baby to a lot of birds up close. They have a reasonable variety of native Australian animals and easy boardwalks through the enclosures. We especially liked the tree kangaroo and friendly owls.

Don't expect time to cuddle. The photo process is quick. It was still amazing to hold one of these adorable critters. I was impressed with the habitats. The kangaroos with little joeys in their pouches were friendly and ate right out of our hand. I could have watched them all day. Saw a few other interesting critters, a Quoll and... More

This is more than an attraction and my 5th yearly visit to this attraction and Port Douglas) if you and your family and/or just a partner want to visit Australian wildlife, ( no it is not in the natural wild, but it is as close and real as could be expected, most certainly not a ZOO!
