Billabong Sanctuary

Billabong Sanctuary offers Australia’s Best Interactive Wildlife Experience! Located just 20 minutes south of Townsville on Highway 1A , Queensland, it features native animals (and a few exotics!) 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, pose with a parrot, feed the cassowaries and turtles. You could even hold a baby saltwater crocodile! There are two walk-through enclosures where kangaroos and pademelons will hop up for a pat. and eat out of your hand! 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. 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.
