Visit the award-winning Wildlife Habitat and get up close to Australian native flora and fauna. This wildlife experience just outside of Port Douglas has been created to provide a window into the natural environment. There are three different environments to explore – the Wetlands, Rainforest and Grasslands, each with unique habitats.
Explore the three different ‘immersion’ environments from elevated boardwalks, giving you an up-close look at a large range of flora and fauna within three different habitats. Wander the park by yourself or take advantage of the free guided tours throughout the day.
Wander through the Wetlands and see the biodiversity of the wetlands at work. From the boardwalk you can watch the wading birds forage for fish in the waterways, and see native Australian icons -- kangaroos and koalas.
See the plants and animals of the rainforest as you walk from the forest floor to high up in the canopy -- keep an eye out for the shy cassowary looking for food.
Depicting both the coastal and inland plains, the Grasslands are home to a mix of different animals. See crocodiles basking in the sun and the native bird life among the billabongs -- there is even the opportunity to hand-feed wallabies and kangaroos!
