Billabong Sanctuary offers Australia’s Best Interactive Wildlife Experience! Located just 20 minutes south of Townsville on Highway 1A , Queensland, it features native animals in natural habitats of eucalypt forest, rainforest and wetlands.
As a small boutique park, it specialises in memorable personal experiences. Get up close to a koala, pat a wombat, pose with a parrot, pat a dingo, and feed the cassowaries. You could even hold a baby saltwater crocodile! There are three walk-through enclosures where kangaroos and pademelons will hop up for a pat. Most interactive experiences are free-of-charge and you can use your own camera to capture the moment.
Throughout the day Rangers present dynamic and impassioned wildlife talks, which are both inspiring and entertaining. A new Roving Rangers feature brings animals up close to family groups for a friendly chat and photo opportunities. Daily croc-feeding shows are thrilling to watch, as these mighty reptiles power out of the water to snatch their food. The focus on conservation has earned Billabong Sanctuary Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation.
