Billabong Sanctuary

Townsville, Townsville Area

Billabong Sanctuary is a wildlife park featuring over 100 species of Australian animals, specialising in the fauna of North Queensland such as the saltwater crocodile and the endangered cassowary.

The wildlife park is set in 25 acres of natural bush land. There are three representative habitats - rainforest, eucalypt woodland and wetlands all set around a billabong which is teeming with North Queensland waterfowl offering great photographic opportunities. Many of the animals and birds are free-ranging while captive animals are displayed in enclosures that replicate the animal's habitat in the wild and subtly blend into the landscape.

Billabong Sanctuary is Australia's best interactive wildlife experience. Animal encounters is a series of unforgettable, hands-on adventures between you and Australia's native animals. You can expect to have the time of your life experiencing the sight, sense and feel of Billabong Sanctuary's native animals: some cute and cuddly, some slippery and fascinating. Hold a koala, hug a wombat, hold a crocodile or wrap a python around your shoulders.

The Sanctuary's focus is the conservation and preservation of native species. To this end, Billabong Sanctuary places emphasis on education at all levels and ages by providing an informative but fun and relaxed day out.
