Billabong Sanctuary

Townsville,

Billabong Sanctuary offers Australia’s Best Interactive Wildlife Experience! Located just 20 minutes south of Townsville on the Bruce Highway, they feature native animals in natural habitats of eucalypt forest, rainforest and wetlands.

As a small boutique park we specialize in memorable personal experiences: Cuddle a koala, pat a wombat, pose with a python, pat a dingo, and feed the cassowaries. You could even hold a baby saltwater crocodile! Free-ranging kangaroos will hop up for a pat. Most interactive experiences are free-of-charge and you can use your own camera to capture the moment.

They are one of the few places in the country where you can hold a koala for a souvenir photo! This dream-come true experience takes place twice a day, morning and afternoon, so you won’t miss out.

Twice-daily croc-feeding shows are thrilling to watch, as these mighty reptiles power out of the water to snatch their food.
Throughout the day friendly Rangers present dynamic and impassioned talks, which are both inspiring and entertaining. Our focus on conservation has earned us Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation.
