I stayed at the Daintree Wild Zoo as a volunteer and it was AMAZING, I can't wait to go back! From someone that has worked behind the scenes i can assure visitors that the zoo is well maintained, the standard of care for all the animals is first rate and Donna and Gill run an efficient ship to keep it all that way. It was great to talk to the visitors coming to the zoo as well, and showing them around and educating them about all the animals. Donna and Gill made me feel so at home and they taught me lots of things about how to care for animals i hadn't worked with before and we even fed the crocs! For new visitors, its good to keep in mind that some of the animals are injured and can't be released back into the wild and without the Daintree Wild Zoo they wouldn't survive, so before you make a judgement or provide negative feedback that the animals aren't well cared for, consider that the QLD government doesn't provide any support or facilities for sick and injured animals and the Daintree Wild Zoo is providing them with a long term home where they are well cared for.

This is a small, quaint zoo. The owners and employees were very friendly. I was happy to support them.

As I understand it is more a sanctuary instead of a zoo what explain that some birds do look stressed and in one case aggressive. And it explains the speaking bird at the entrance. But still walking along the cages with one (or none) bird in it, birds that try to make contact with you and the free flying cages that are not used give a sad impression. The kangaroos did hop away when we walked in their direction. Staying in the B&B we did visit the Zoo twice. Ones in the afternoon (on a hot day) and the next morning between 8:45 and 9:30 and both times we were the only visitors. I did feel a bit sad after seeing the birds like that. If you want to see Australian animals you can visit the zoo and helping the owners to keep giving refugees a new home.

Let me start by saying best hosts ever Gil & Donna are fantastic. Rooms are of a great size with comfy beds, please ensure that if you require an en-suite that you book rooms upstairs as the rooms downstairs are shared facilities. Breakfast that was included was ample, I would highly recommend the fresh Mango juice YUM! YUM! The zoo is an added bonus, the Crocodiles are massive, you can hand feed the Kangaroos and Wallabies what a novel thing to do. Thanks again Gil & Donna, when we are in the area we will be back.

This isn’t a zoo. It’s an animal refuge. The animals (mainly birds) all looked stressed or unhappy understandably as there’s no rehabilitation efforts by the owners of this place. As soon as they took our money they simply sat down in their lounge to watch tv as we walked around to find dead rats in the bird sanctuary, holes in enclosures, weeds everywhere in enclosures. Stagnant water where the turtles/lizard located. You will get to see a cassowary but that’s about it. Hopefully the owners can get out and see the state of their refuge and try and do something about it or close up shop.
