Our Zoo & Animals

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.

With an Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation, Wildlife Habitat is committed to conservation via its wildlife rescue program, 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.

Divided into 4 distinct North Queensland environments, the Woodland, Wetlands, Rainforest and Savannah. Wildlife Habitat is unlike any other zoo or wildlife experience you have ever encountered.

Voted TripAdvisors Travellers Choice #1 ZOO in North Queensland two years in a row, you will thoroughly enjoy immersing yourself in our park!

At Wildlife Habitat we are passionate about our animals.  We provide not only a sanctuary for our collection of birds, reptiles, mammals, fish and amphibians, but we also provide an opportunity for the public to get up close and personal and learn more about these wonderful creatures. We believe education is the best way to ensure understanding appreciation and conservation of all natures treasures.
