Daintree Wild Zoo
At the Daintree Wildlife Zoo rare
and endangered species such as the North-East Queensland's
Golden-shouldered Parrot and Gouldian Finches are bred alongside our
more common species. The Sanctuary is a brilliant day out from Port
Douglas or Cairns for families, individuals and groups wanting to see,
touch and photograph wildlife set within wetland reserves and purpose
built aviaries with first class amenities for your comfort.
STOP at Daintree Wild Zoo for a half day,
full day or overnight in the pool side accommodation within the zoo. Daintree Wild Zoo is conveniently
located to include a rainforest day trip from Cairns or Port Douglas
(click for Location). The Sanctuary is the only wildlife nature park or zoo in Daintree World Heritage listed rainforest.
LOOK at the wildlife either as a day visitor or, if staying at
the zoo's affordable accommodation, the morning provides a true
experience of 'breakfast with the birds', mammals and reptiles. Overnight
guests also receive a 50% discount on the zoo entry.
LISTEN to the sounds of nature. The morning chorus as the
wildlife awakens or the afternoon cacophony as the diurnal wildlife
have a late feed and pave the way for the nocturnal creatures to
indulge in the nightlife.
TOUCH the many 'touchable' birds and mammals including any new
babies such as cassowary, emu and dingo. Have your photo taken with "Teddy" our friendly Red Tailed Black Cockatoo and our friendly kangaroos and wallabies or hand feed "Fruit Loop" our resident Cassowary. Crocodile 'touching' is
strictly for our experienced staff. See our wildlife
checklist for a complete inventory of the fauna which inhabits the
SMELL the scents of varying flowering native and exotic flora
abundant throughout the Sanctuary.
TASTE tropical fruits for breakfast. See Menu for the selection
available for dinner.
A visit to Daintree Wild Zoo is a 'must do' event if you want to experience the wildlife of the Daintree region.
