I have visited the Billabong Sanctuary quite a few times over the years and have found it worth a look. While its not on the scale as some other places like Australia Zoo etc it is still not a bad experience and has lots of opportunities for hands on interaction with the animals. There are ample photo opportunities with Koala's, Kangaroo's, Lizards, Tortoise, Snakes and Dingo's. The shows are ok in quality and well explained by the handlers. Its location is not too far from the main part of Townsville and it has never been overally busy with tourists to the point of making it uncomfortable or unenjoyable. Those not from Australia and not familiar with the native wildlife will find it a very good experience. Food and drink is available at the kiosk at the entrance as is food to feed the friendly kangaroo's and birds found around the central lake.
