Wildlife Habitat Review
This world-class wildlife sanctuary just off the Captain Cook Highway is divided into "immersion" wetland, rain-forest, grassland, and savanna habitats, enabling close creature encounters with everything from koalas to cassowaries and crocs. The park shelters more than 180 species of native wildlife in its eight-acre expanse, including technicolor parrots, echidnas, emus, kangaroos, and crocodiles. The "tropical" buffet breakfast with the birds, served daily 8–10:30 (A$47, including sanctuary entry and a guided tour) is accompanied by avian residents so tame they'll perch on your shoulders—and may steal your food if you're distracted. You can also lunch with the lorikeets from noon–2 daily (A$47), or join one of the sanctuary's free expert-guided tours, held several times daily (or book a VIP behind-the-scenes version).
