“Magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

This was one of the most amazing places in Australia. Fantastic collection of animals that are so well cared for. The staff are extremely knowledgable, they offer free guided tours allowing you to ask questions along the way. You can feed and pet the kangaroos (my favorite). There is so much to do here, one day was not enough.

“Great stop!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2006

This was an excellent park and one of the highlights of our visit to North Queensland. Great interaction with the animals, an excellent variety, and obvious attention and care for the animals.

We spent a lot of time talking to Trish, who was both very friendly and knowledgable.

This park is definitely worth a couple of hours during your visit.

“Best Wildlife Sanctuary in North Queensland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2006

Couldn't agree with the above poster more. I live in Far North Queensland and have been to all the wildlife parks, this one surpasses them all.

One of Australia's best collection of native parrots and finches; crocodiles, sugar gliders, emus, kangaroos, cassowaries, quolls, bettongs, dingos and more. Here you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner with the birds at the onsite restaurant or better still overnight in the on-site comfortable accommodation.

Daintree Mangroves Wildlife Sanctuary is locally owned by the Talbot family and is truly a wildlife photographer's dream come true.
