  • Me and my girlfriend went for a holiday in port Douglas for a week in January 2022. Went to visit this place since she really wanted to after searching in online and I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised. There is a lot to see and is also very informative to attend some shows and talk to the friendly staff. The ticket is valid for 3 days if you ask for a signature at the gift shop before exiting the place so... if you didn't have time to visit all you wanted you can come back the day after! Definitely worth the price.
  • We had a fantastic day! The animal shows were unbelievable. Loved the humour and showmanship from(Drew and his colleague)at the crocodile shows. Well done guys very entertaining. The grounds and buildings were well maintained. I wished the boat cruise would have been a little slower for( photography). We were so impressed we purchased a year ticket.
  • What a great time we had. 4 adults and a 5yr old. Even the adults had a great time. The guys/gal's that work there are so knowledgeble about everything and have a great sense of humour! We had a great time with the boat tour, the snake and crocodile show and walking around and the food is nice and cheap too! Loved it.
  • We had one of the best days on our trip here. The staff were very informative and hilariously funny. It's amazing value for money as there are so many shows to see while you're there and a boat ride! The cafe has a great variety for lunch and is reasonable. Loved the whole experience!
  • An absolute must see, it’s a fantastic relaxed place that’s not only informative but entertaining and lots of fun. The demonstrations and shows exceed any animal park I’ve been too and is great value for money. We had breakfast with a koala and were provided with the biggest breakfast you could eat, all with a very cute Koala right next to us. The staff are extremely friendly and informative and everything is done with with a great sense of humour. 10 out 10 for me.
