The staff was so knowledgable and friendly, you can buy some Kangaroo food and feed the Kangaroos. Great place to learn about the animals and beautiful birds

We went here with one goal, to get our photos taken with a Koala! Once that was achieved, there is still so much to see! Will probably spend half a day here

Really great place for kids and for adults also. Feeding the kangaroos was the best part but other than that you get to see amazing animals and birds. Stuff was nice friendly and informative. Holding koala was nice but you only get to hold it...More

We went around lunchtime and probably better if you did it early in the day or later. At 35 degrees even the animals know it’s time to hide from the heat, however a quaint spot to view a koala, emu, loads of birds as well...More

Feeding a kangaroo was amazing! The crocodile feeding session was also impressive. I am so glad we stopped and spent time here.

Spent a morning here; get to go back for four days. Wonderful place. Very clean and well maintained, even though they are upgrading parts of the habitat. Lovely staff who were enthusiastic and very informed. Great place!

This was a FANTASTIC discovery. Not an animal person before. Just happen to see it on the way into Port Douglas. It is a highly recommended visit - see all the wildlife wandering around - up and personal. Cool that the birds come right up...More

First visited around 2001 when I thought it was fantastic. Seems as though there are not as many animals there and the koalas have certainly reduced - only 3 or 4 that I could see. I was just going to photograph the only one that...More

Hi, Thanks for visiting Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas and taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were unable to take the photo of the koala. We will look into this further. Kind regards, Amanda

There was a 15-min koala presentation and photo op at 1145 am. Don’t know about any private tours.

Compare Wildlife Habitat and Hartley's Crocodile Adventure? (4 Replies)
I am not sure if the same folks read the Cairns and Port Douglas forums so I am asking this in both places, sorry for the duplication. We will be staying 3 days in Port Douglas in September. We do not want to go snorkeling then because we will be leaving on a snorkel charter afterwards. We plan to go to Daintree one day on a tour. Another day, we thought we'd go to either Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas or Hartley's Crocodile Adventure. Can you please help us choose? We want to be...More

Cairns/ Sydney/ Blue Mountains itinerary help! (2 Replies)
I'm a 20 year old female going on my first trip to Australia (and first time travelling solo!) for two weeks before studying abroad in New Zealand for the semester... I'll be in Australia from January 30 through February 12. I'm more interested in wildlife/ exploring on my own than cities/ group tours, but I'm a little nervous travelling alone so I am sticking to more "touristy" things for my own peace of mind. Does this itinerary seem reasonable? Any advice/ suggestions are welcome!!!! ...More

I just noticed from your other query about jetlag that this query has slipped through the cracks (many people are away or very busy at this time of year). I don't know if you went ahead and booked everything, but IMO it looks pretty good, and if there are any details you still need help with please let us know. Be prepared that coming from your northern winter the heat plus humidity in Cairns will really feel enervating. >>I really want to hold a koala-- like every other...More

Hartleys is more like animal shows in a zoo, and wildlife habitat is more like a zoo with short animal talks if you get what I mean
