Wildlife Habitat - Entry with Multi Day Pass

*** The #1 Port Douglas Attraction*** Hand-feed Australian Wallabies and Kangaroos, spot the Southern Cassowary or Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo, watch a crocodile feeding presentation, or take a selfie with a Koala at Wildlife Habitat!

Situated just one hour north of Cairns, Wildlife Habitat enjoys a tropical rainforest ecosystem and acres and acres of lush native bush. The ideal setting for a fascinating wildlife experience.

This award winning and advanced eco certified wildlife sanctuary allows guests to interact with Australian animals in their recreated natural environments. Explore five spacious unique environments, Wetlands, Rainforest, Savannah, Nocturnal and Woodlands.


Highlights of this leading environmental wildlife experience include:

Woodland: Offers an opportunity to sit amongst the richly coloured birds of northern Australia’s open woodlands. Marvel at the complexity of the locally endangered and endemic finches, watch wood swallows swooping overhead, and search for the smallest species that live in the undergrowth, from quail to the endangered Northern Bettong.

Wetlands: Discover an array of wading birds can be viewed foraging for fish and crustaceans in the waterways. This area depicts the amazing diversity of our natural wetlands that are important fringing areas and provide a link to many ecosystems. In this area, you will find a multitude of bird species – including the black-necked stork – as well as fruit bats and koalas.

Rainforest: Discover the stunning rainforest, from the ground levels to the uppermost canopy in our newly renovated Rainforest Habitat. This incredible exhibit is home to some of the most colourful residents of our tropical region, including the endangered Southern Cassowary, the stunning Eclectus Parrot, and the mesmerising Rainbow Lorikeet. Explore the various levels of the rainforest as you walk up the brand new Licuala Tower. Brave the sky-high birdseye bridge and watch colourful birds soar through the highest level of the rainforest canopy.

Savannah: This is an open-air exhibit that portrays both inland and coastal plains. Here guests are enticed to interact with and hand-feed a range of macropods from the statuesque Eastern Grey Kangaroo to the petite Parma Wallaby. Emus and Pelicans also freely range this large and open area. A feature to our Savannah habitat is the billabong - home to turtles, frogs and a range of waterfowl while also attracting a host of native bird varieties. Over forty species have been recorded utilising the exhibit as a refuge for breeding. The Savannah is also home to our Predator Plank, the world’s first plank walk over giant Estuarine Crocodiles! Guests can see Babinda, our giant Estaurine crocodile and his three girlfriends.

Nocturnal: Ever wondered what animals come alive after dark? The state-of-the-art Nocturnal Habitat allows you to enter a world after dark and explore recreated night environments and meet the animals that call them home. Integrated with advanced technology, this unique habitat replicates nature at night. Our animals experience a reverse-circadian rhythm due to incredible lighting devices, which makes them experience “night-time” during our “daytime”. This means that we can see what these animals really get up to at their most active! Venture through Starlight Walk get up close and personal with elusive and exciting animal species including Striped Possums, Bettongs and Mahogany Gliders. Enter a world after dark and see tiny nocturnal marsupials including Spinifex Hopping Mice and Feathertail Gliders. Listen to the haunting cry of the Curlew and experience a night-time rainforest environment in a safe and secure manner.

Tours: Including Rainforest & Cassowary Feeding Tour, Wetlands Feeding Tour, Koala Presentation & Souvenir Photos, Grasslands & Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo Tour, North Queensland Reptile Experience, Rainforest & Turtle Feeding Tour, Koala Feeding and Reptile Interaction.

Amazing!! Fun!! Interactive!!

If you love interacting with animals this is the place to go. Especially birds! The place is pretty much one giant aviary and interacting with wildlife is so easy. Really authentic experience.

Outstanding

Thoroughly recommend Habitat. The up close and personal experience with the wildlife is fabulous. Max the black cockatoo has my heart. The croc enclosure fascinated also. And I’ve never fed a kangaroo before. They are so gentle.

Disappointing.

Closure of areas. Normally a great experience. Felt it was not as worth wild on this occasion.
