This is a small family owned zoo. It is a great way to see the local animals up close - Crocodile, Kangaroo, Wallaby, Dingo, Emus, tons of birds and more. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Really recommend Daintree Wild Zoo for allowing you to get close to some of Australia's most famous animals. Family owned and run, this place has crocs, cassawary, kangaroos and dingo's and you can wander through the lovely grounds as wallabies bounce by you. Stunning birds...More

This place is magical as it is so relaxed - you can get close encounters with different animals and see an amazing diversity including some endemic species that only exist in the Cape Tribulation area!
