Reopening Saturday June 13th!!

We are thrilled to announce we will be reopening our park June 13th. During this time, the safety of our guests, team and the public is our priority. The numbers of daily visitors will be limited, and social distancing guidelines will be strictly enforced at all our attractions.

Pre-booking is recommended as there are limitations to how many people can be in the parks at any one time, bookings will open soon. Due to COVID-19 restrictions all tours and presentations will be altered. .

We are so excited to welcome all our CaPTA Group Annual Pass members and all other locals back into our attractions. Our whole team (including the wildlife) are looking forward to returning to the new “normal”.

Now, more than ever, we need the community to support us and we hope we can offer some much-needed adventures in your own backyard. To Check out our locals rates click here 

Australian Wildlife Experience- #1 Port Douglas Attraction

There’s nothing quite like the Wildlife Habitat Experience. Fancy hand-feeding iconic Australian Wallabies and Kangaroos or catching a glimpse of the legendary Southern Cassowary or Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo? How about watching a crocodile feeding presentation or having your photo taken with a Koala? All of these experiences and more are waiting for you at our Port Douglas attraction.

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, and meet with the species that call these animals home.

Our Motto: observation, appreciation and conservation.

Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas offers an Australian wildlife experience with a difference. We are dedicated to the conservation of native wildlife and believe that this is best achieved through observation and appreciation. Our Port Douglas attraction is home to an on-site care centre for the Tropical Animal Rehabilitation Centre, which cares for injured, sick, orphaned and displaced native wildlife.
