No luck spotting wildlife in the wild? Make up for it at the delightful Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary just outside Port Douglas, where you're guaranteed close, eco-friendly encounters and Attenborough-worthy photo ops with 180-plus species of native Australian birds, reptiles, and mammals. Wide boardwalks wind through a gigantic walk-through aviary (divided into rain forest, wetland, and woodland environments) and a compact grasslands wildlife park. You'll see bright-plumed parrots, wallabies, 'roos, lizards, crocs, and koalas. Arrive early for the popular Breakfast With the Birds and Lunch With the Lorikeets sessions.
