Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas

Wildlife Habitat is 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.

Wildlife Habitat aims to bring about observation, appreciation and conservation. Through educating customers on the native species and making them appreciate the animals, they hope that customers 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

Explore five spacious re-created ecosystems, Woodlands, Wetlands, Rainforest, Savannah and Nocturnal.

Meet over 100 Australian species, including the endangered and elusive Southern Cassowary and Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo. Hand feed wallabies and kangaroos, walk the Predator Plank over giant Estuarine Crocodiles and meet Emus and Koalas.
