Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary Tours

Queensland's Port Douglas features a true rain forest atmosphere, and at the Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary, visitors can experience the kaleidoscope of color that wildlife brings to the forest. This eight-acre sanctuary is broken up into four different wilderness habitats–woodland, wetlands, rain forest, and savanna—and showcases the critters who call them home.

Gaze at a blue-and-orange-hued cassowary or the colorful lorikeets and parrots before scouring the savanna for Lumholtz's tree-kangaroos, which are only found in the tropics. Watch the eyes of a freshwater croc as it casually cruises the waters, or search for koalas high in the trees.

Sanctuary staff members lead guided, supervised feeding tours throughout the day and also host educational talks and presentations on the animals' fascinating characteristics. The wildlife sanctuary is very active in conservation, breeding, and rehabilitation. Upgrades for visitors include the after-dark Wildnight nocturnal tour (from $30), a Breakfast with the Birds experience (from $26.50), Lunch with the Lorikeets (from $28), and Picnic With the Parrots ($40).

Practical Info

The Wildlife Habitat Sanctuary is located at the southern end of Four Mile Beach, 3.3 miles (5.4 km) south of Port Douglas and 39 miles (63 km) northwest of Cairns. General admission tickets are valid for five days, and visitor facilities include free WiFi, restrooms, a gift shop, and a restaurant. Wheelchairs are available.
