Wildlife Habitat Experience

The Wildlife Habitat Experience

Did you know Port Douglas is home to one of Australia’s most exciting wildlife experiences? And the world’s cutest Koalas?—OK, that one’s just our opinion, not fact.

What is fact is the Wildlife Habitat is an excellent way to spend a day with the kids or hand in hand for a cosy afternoon in nature. With an amazing array of displays and exhibits, and hundreds of species to learn about, the Wildlife Habitat has a variety of activities, tours, and experiences to share with their visitors. Kids of all ages will enjoy the interaction, a chance to meet elusive animals and even witness the feeding of Babinda – Port Douglas’ massive 4.2-meter croc! 

So, if you do one thing in Port Douglas these school holidays, make it an adventure at Wildlife Habitat! Immerse yourself with native Australian Wildlife in five spacious ecosystems—yes, once you walk in expect a surprise or squawk at every turn, but hey that’s what makes it wild. And if you have kids, they will think it’s the most amazing adventure.

Once you’ve strolled through free flying birds, a dancing Brolga, and a few laid-back Koalas, keep following the path through Curlew Café (open daily), to the newly rebuilt Rainforest Habitat. 

The marvels of the lush vivacious Rainforest are mirrored in this the real deal environment telling the ancient story of its inhabitants like Cassowaries, Pademelons, and wide variety of stunning tropical birds.

Discover its secrets while ascending the sky high Licuala Tower. A multi-level spire dotted with appreciation alcoves leading you to where the birds soar above the canopy of tropical trees and views of the great diving range. Suspended at the summit is the Birdseye Bridge, nothing short of spectacular with flaps of colourful Eclectus parrots flying by. Across the way, cascading treehouse viewing platforms will thrill and delight.

If you or any young animal lover you know, jumps at the chance to give anything furry or scaly a cuddle then Wildlife Habitat is the perfect experience for the wildlife enthusiast and a good way to get the kids off the couch and off your back during the school break. 

Wildlife Habitat will be celebrating the opening of their Rainforest Habitat and 30 years of being a wildlife sanctuary on the 19th and 20th September 2020. It will be a weekend of festivities and family friendly activities with special pricing. Keep up to date with all things Wildlife Habitat on FB @portdouglaswildlife or visit wildlifehabitat.com.au
