After taking the famous scenic drive to Port Douglas, our first destination is Wildlife Habitat, an open and interactive environment for guests and animals to mingle in a spacious natural setting. Visitors wander along elevated boardwalks, observing up close a huge range of flora and fauna as birds fly and animals roam freely.

Hand feed the wallabies and Kangaroos, and join in the wildlife presentations (wetlands birds, Cassowary, koala, Reptile & Saltwater Crocodiles) before sitting down for the Crocodile Feeding Presentation.

 See the famous "Tree Kangaroos" (kangaroos that live in the trees !) along with the enormous flightless bird - The Cassowary.

​Guests who have opted for a Swim with the Salties will experience the ultimate adrenaline rush and dive into the aquatic territory with two of the mightiest Estuarine Crocodiles at Wildlife Habitat's CrocArena. Guests that have opted not to swim with the crocodiles - will enjoy watching the other guests take the main stage in the Crocodile feeding show !

​Next stop is Mossman Gorge, where you'll enjoy a swim in the cool refreshing crystal clear waters of Mossman Gorge, a smoking ceremony, indigneous welcome to country, natural aboriginal body paint demonstration and plant medicine talk, before enjoying a  guided walk through the rainforest or some free-time to explore the Daintree Rainforest and Mossman Gorge,
