Admission gets you 5 day entry, and we went back twice. Great habitat set up: Rain Forest, Wetlands, and Savannah. Hand feed the walabees and kangaroos. They have feeding tours in each habitat and you can learn about the animals as part of admission. Lots of birds. Not a typical zoo. Very well run, I thought.

Well we arrived at 8.30 for breakfast and to show off our native animals to our visitors from the USA. We enjoyed breakfast, wide choice of food, pastries, cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt, bacon, eggs, sausages, grilled tomato etc.... all yummy. Best part was the keeper talk when she introduces you to some of the birds. Elvis the black cockatoo was... More

Loved meeting Colin the blind tree kangaroo with only half a tail. He was a rescue animal as are so many here.Enjoyed feeding time with the black-necked storks and seeing their 2 huge babies in the big nest they had built.. Glad to see baby kangaroos, emus etc. All seemed very well looked after, a credit to the staff. Lovely... More

Our trip was capped with a trip to this unique area! We saw a litany of birds, held a koala, fed kangaroos and enjoyed the awesome natural features of this park. Highly recommended!

Seeing local animals, getting close to wallabies (feeding them at close range) seeing the emus. Just a great way to spend a couple of hours

Given this is not your high profile, sponsored sanctuary, I think this place does very well in the range of animals and birdlife who live here. Those people conducting tours around the place were knowledgeable and interesting to listen to, without going into too much detail and being longwinded in their explanations. They also offer a second visit free on... More

Great place to visit for half day, the whole place is open plan so you can interact directly with the creatures here. It's a great place for families as a lot of basic education as to creatures and habits and for an additional charge you can have your picture taken with one of the animals, I got my picture taken...

The place needs some money spent on it, and be brought up to date. It looked very dated railings had green ants crawling all over them everywhere.

The animals and related experience were the highlight of our stay in Port Douglas for my kids (9,11) and my wife. Even over the reef which we all loved. They loved the Koala pictures with the Wallaby/Kangaroo feeding a close second. If you do go, buy your pass Day 1 -- it lasts for 5 days. Highly recommended.
