With a naturalist guide in the lead, explore Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rainforest, and Mossman Gorge. Listening to commentary about the UNESCO World Heritage Sites highlights allows you to learn much more about the unique ecosystem, history, and culture than you would by simply exploring on your own. Additionally, round-trip transportation from Cairns allows you to focus on the scenery on the journey down the picturesque Captain Cook Highway.

My wife and I took the 2-hour private tour following our first visit the day before. This time was 0830 to 1030 including photos with animals and back of house to see the rescue centre work. We saw so much more than the first time and learned a great deal. Thank you Holly. A great insight into the workings of the Centre and the knowledge of the staff, as well as their care for the creatures. The photo prints were made super fast and are high quality. The digital copies also provided were very easy to download

Hi, Thank you so much for visiting Wildlife Habitat for Your Wildlife Habitat. It's wonderful to hear that you and your wife enjoyed the 2 hour private tour with Holly- we will pass on your compliments to her. Going behind the scenes into our Tropical Animal Rehabilitation Centre is always really interesting and it's fantastic to see the care our keepers give to these sick, orphaned or displaced native wildlife.

Had an afternoon flight and found a few hours here perfect. Plenty to look at and a good variety of animals. Highlight was the croc feeding and the staff delivered a very knowledgeable presentation. Cafe offered good value light meal options. Will have to return once the upgrades are complete.

What a lovely day we had at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas! Although very hot, there was plenty of shade throughout and the park’s layout had adapted social distancing protocols without restricting our experience at all. My toddler loved interacting with the wildlife and really enjoyed the croc feeding. The staff were respectful and full of knowledge. We will certainly be back for another visit soon!

It's so lovely to hear that you had a great day and were able to escape from the tropical heat under our shady areas. How wonderful that your toddler enjoyed meeting our animals and watching our crocodile feeding experience- Babinda certainly is an impressive beast! We look forward to seeing you again soon :)

This was our 3rd visit - a must do whenever we visit Port Douglas. I'm sure they need every visit possible to keep income coming in to stay open in these trying times. It surely never disappoints us. The park is always immaculate. Even though the buffet with the birds is not open during Covid - you can still order A La Carte and the birds certainly still do come over - its so great. The staff at the entrance are so helpful and friendly. The staff at the restaurant were lovely too. The animals all look happy and healthy. So good to be able to walk over the bridge at the croc exhibit and look down to see how big they are up close - scary. All the homes are a good generous size and we absolutely love it. You can purchase feed for the kangaroos and feed them (and the geese) in their free range enclosure. You also get a ticket on entry letting you visit again within 5 days for free!! Please support these animals.

Hi, Thanks for visiting Wildlife Habitat (3 times!) and for taking the time to leave a wonderful review. It's so lovely to hear that you visit us every time you come to Port Douglas and we certainly appreciate your support more than ever in the current climate. Our furry, feathery and scaly residents certainly appreciate it too! Although our breakfast buffet is currently not operating due to covid, our birds are still as cheeky and friendly as ever, and it's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed interacting with them. One of the most unique aspects of Wildlife Habitat is that it's an immersion exhibit, meaning that guests can get close to and interact with our animals in their recreated natural environment. It's great to hear that you were impressed with out spacious enclosures and that our animals looked healthy and happy (they certainly are!) We hope to see you again next time you are back in Port Douglas! Kind regards, Amanda

We weren't initially going to stop here however we are so glad we did. We spent a wonderful morning walking through the park, admiring all the animals. It's a different experience compared to other wildlife parks you can visit, I found it so much more interactive. I loved the bridge located over the croc habitat. The big croc saw us cross it and swam over to plant himself directly underneath "in case we fell in"; he then proceeded to swim and follow us as we walked around to the other bridge. Quite an unnerving experience knowing he was hoping we were going to be his next meal, but also something you don't get to experience anywhere else. It also appeared to be a bit of territory argy-bargy going on between him and the smaller crocodile - we witnessed the big croc chase the smaller one away with a bit of hissing and head slapping going on - was very interesting to witness the behaviour as they would do in the wild. I loved the tree house climb and being high above the trees - will certainly be back when we are in the area next.

Hi, Thanks so much for visiting Wildlife Habitat and for taking the time to leave your review. It's fantastic to hear that you enjoyed visiting our park and meeting our beautiful animals. One of the most unique elements of Wildlife Habitat is that it's an immersion and exhibit and you can interact with wildlife in their recreated natural environments. How incredible that Babinda followed you around the Predator Plank and our lagoon- he's such a big boy and you would have been able to get a fantastic look at him. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed our newly renovated Rainforest Habitat and our Birdseye Bridge and Licuala Tower. Thanks again, Amanda
