We thought this would be cool - sleep at the zoo. But we expected the rooms to not be too nice. Boy were we impressed. The room was GREAT! We stayed in one of the bird rooms that faces the zoo. Large room and large bathroom as well.
Breakfast was pretty basic, but we stayed there for the animals.
It was really neat to walk the grounds at night (with a flashlight) and see all of the nocturnal animals out and about. Find the crocs by their glowing eyes. Hear the owls. See the wallabies.
Then we walked during the day to see the other animals. Early AM the roos get fed and come out. Good time to get close. But if you get the food sacks ($2) they will come.
We were impressed with the size/quality of the zoo. The hosts were very friendly.
Just note that food options are limited. We ate at the Daintree Eco lodge one day and in Port Douglas on the other.
