Our Zoo & Animals
With a focus on observation, appreciation and conservation, our Port Douglas Zoo is a zoo with a difference!
The award-winning Wildlife Habitat is Australia’s leading environmental wildlife experience, providing visitors with a chance to observe up close a huge range of flora and fauna.
Situated at Port Douglas, Tropical North Queensland, Wildlife Habitat was constructed in 1988 on 8 acres (2 hectares) of land that has been recreated to provide a window into our natural environment.
Our wildlife park aims to bring about observation, appreciation and conservation. Through educating customers on our native species and making them appreciate our animals, we hope that they will be more inclined to change things in their every day lives to help conserve these species.
With an Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation, Wildlife Habitat is committed to conservation via its wildlife rescue program the Tropical Animal Rehabilitation Centre, ensuring that injured, orphaned, or sick animals are looked after in a professional and caring manner.
Wildlife Habitat is a wildlife immersion exhibit – an open and interactive environment for guests and animals to mingle in a spacious and natural setting. Visitors wander along elevated boardwalks and meandering pathways to experience some of the wet tropics endemic species, including the endangered Southern Cassowary and Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo
Divided into five distinct environments, the Woodland, Wetlands, Rainforest, Savannah and Nocturnal. Wildlife Habitat is unlike any other zoo or wildlife experience you have ever encountered.
Hand feed free-roaming kangaroos and wallabies in our Savannah Habitat, wander through the starlight walk in our Nocturnal Habitat and be immersed in the wet tropics at every level in our Rainforest Habitat.
Visit our Port Douglas zoo and you will thoroughly enjoy immersing yourself in our park, meeting our animals, and making memories to last a lifetime!
