The iconic and award-winning Wildlife Habitat is Australia’s leading environmental wildlife experience, providing visitors with a chance to observe a huge range of native animals and plant life up close in a spacious interactive setting.
Situated at Port Douglas, Tropical North Queensland, the park is a leader in sustainable eco-tourism. With 5 distinct eco-systems – Woodlands, Wetlands, Rainforest, Nocturnal and Savannah – set over 8 acres of land, the natural habitat locations allow for an open and immersive experience allowing guests and wildlife the freedom and space to interact.
Showcasing over 100 Australian species and over 600 individual animals, you can hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, smile at a crocodile, observe living history with a visit to the cassowaries, or catch a glimpse of the rare Lumholtz’s tree-kangaroo.
Dive into the aquatic territory of the mighty Estuarine Crocodile at Wildlife Habitat’s CrocArena. This off-the-scale opportunity to swim with saltwater crocodiles is the only one of its kind in Queensland and allows park visitors to swim eye-to-teeth with these terrifying apex predators and live to tell the tale!
Walk the plank – the predator plank that is !
