Simply awesome

Simply awesome! An up close experience for adults & kids - we held birds, a koala and crocodile (extra cost but worth it) and patted and fed so many friendly kangaroo’s the kids were in heaven. Brekky was a great addition, it was an all round great way to spend the morning.

Very nice habitat and cool animals

Very nice habitat and cool animals. The birds and wallabies are free which means you can get close to them. Unfortunately, part was being renovated when we visited due to cyclone damage but we still saw everything. Visit if you have some free time in Port Douglas or driving down to Cairns.

My partner and I decided to visit the wildlife centre on our way home from Port Douglas

My partner and I decided to visit the wildlife centre on our way home from Port Douglas. It was cute watching all the animals and how they would interact with people but just maintenance I think brung down the experience for us. Sometimes it can’t be helped but it just didn’t look inviting. I think it might be time for some restructuring on the wooden plate forms as they are just deteriorated. But overall we did enjoy our experience, it’s just time for some cleaning up.
