Second visit both times great but it was a bit sterile . Our first visit was several years ago and the birds could come down and sit on your shoulder steal your prized piece of melon and drink your juice. Unfortunately with the legalities being what they are that interaction is gone. We are lucky enough to live in a... More

Great place, great friendly staff, a very tranquil setting for the animals, birds, snakes, tent spiders, koalas, kangaroos, crocs! Nice place to eat lunch they have sandwiches drinks and also a buffet for great value! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves it's probably a half day venue if you want to plan other things but this does not disappoint at all! Car park,toilets,... More

Loved the bird interactive session after breakfast. I think the kids would've stayed all day. Davinder the croc has to be seen to be believed, he is a monster!! The nocturnal tour was also really great, the kids once again loved it, especially the striped possum.

We enjoyed a day at the Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas where we were allowed to get up close with various Australian animals. The children especially enjoyed feeding the friendly kangaroos and learning more about the Cassowary's on the bird & reptile tour. Staff were very friendly and informative and the 5 day return pass made for a great experience to... More

Great place with a lot of beautiful birds and even the talking ones There's also some local animals as well. Our stay was too short and it should be at least half day to explore more.

I've been here twice, most recently in January 2017. It's a nice zoo with lots of animals, and you can get up close and have photographs taken with several of them, including the koalas. Other highlights: the crocodile, kangaroos, albatroses.

Spent a very enjoyable couple of hours here getting up close to some of Australia's unique animals, including kangaroos, Koalas, pythons, a saltwater crocodile, and a large variety of magnificent birds. It's possible to feed some of the kangaroos/wallabies with the approved/provided feed. The animals know to approach for the hand-outs. Not so with Babinda, the giant clearly extremely well-nourished... More

We have stayed in Port Douglas, gone for the day, taken OS visitors there but have not stopped off at the Wildlife Habitat for a LONG time. It was really refreshing and our Japanese visitors were able to experience a lot of the things on their bucket list. It might sound very commercial having a photo taken with a Koala... More

A very good sanctuary especially for young families. Nice breakfast with the birds. The big hit with this sanctuary is the opportunity to be photographed cuddling a koala. There is croc feeding but if you want to see crocs up close and feed them go to Harley's. Don't go to hartleys for koalas.recommend both places.
