“Wildlife Habitat is Australia’s leading wildlife experience, providing visitors with the opportunity to observe a huge range of native wildlife up close in a spacious interactive setting"

Get ready to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush and dive into the aquatic territory with the mighty saltwater crocodiles at Wildlife Habitat's Swim with the Salties Experience. The ultimate in wildlife interaction, this extreme wildlife encounter permits you to swim with giant apex predators in a 180-degree clear swim spa. This spine-tingling sensation is as real as it gets. 

Located at CrocArena at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, you will be in breathtaking awe as our huge 4 meter + crocs lurk either side of you.  Swim just centimetres from these enormous reptiles and marvel at their sheer power and size  as you witness their incredible strength, agility and bone crushing power.

For maximum hygiene and health, our swim pools for our crocs and swimmers are separate bodies of water with their own filtration systems.


Situated at the entrance to Port Douglas, the park is a leader in eco-tourism, with 5 distinct habitats - Woodlands, Wetlands, Rainforest, Savannah and Nocturnal -  set over 8 acres of land, providing a unique immersion experience.

From providing the thrill of being able to swim with saltwater crocodiles, to keeping company with cassowaries and hand feeding adorable eastern grey kangaroos, the award-winning Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas has unrivalled opportunities for travellers to interact, adore and be amazed by Australia’s most iconic wildlife. 

By providing unique and enriching encounters, the team at Wildlife Habitat aim to inspire travellers  to appreciate and understand the importance of wildlife conservation, and to take proactive steps towards protecting our natural environments.

The world-famous Breakfast with the Birds now includes feeding koalas and is welcoming visitors to a new educational and mouth-watering dining event in Wetlands. Join any of the many daily presentations with the experienced wildlife keepers, admire cassowaries and Lumholtz’s tree-kangaroos in the Rainforest, peek at possums in Nocturnal, wonder at small birds in Woodlands, as well as meet iconic koala’s and create valuable conservation connections. Open every day from 8am – 4pm except Christmas Day.
