PREDATOR PLANK BILLABONG NEAR COMPLETION
Australia’s leading wildlife experience, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, is almost ready to open the World’s First Predator Plank.
The “Predator Plank” will open to the public on the 19th of September, more details soon to be release on the opening weekend.
The “predator Plank” will allow guests to test their courage as they “walk the plank” over a crocodile-filled billabong.
The Wildlife Habitat Team have been overseeing the filling of the billabong for the past four days, and believe it is just one day away from being filled to its capacity.
The billabong holds 200,000 litres of fresh water from Wildlife Habitat’s onsite bore, with Estuarine Crocodiles due to move in to their new home next week.
Estuarine Crocodiles are found in all types of water in far north Queensland, not just saltwater which is a common misconception.
The CaPTA Group’s Research and Development Manager Andrew Hearn said he’s looking forward to the Estuarine Crocodiles moving in to their new home next week.
“Although there are no predators inhabiting the area just yet, the team are now checking over their shoulder as the area begins to take shape,” he said.
“Everyone working on the enclosure knows full well that there are no crocodiles in there yet, but as the water is getting deeper, you still feel a little uneasy being in there.”
Wildlife Habitat is in Port Douglas and is Australia’s leading wildlife experience, providing visitors with a chance to observe a huge range of flora and fauna up close.
