One of only two species found in Australia, Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroos are native to Tropical North Queensland, residing in high elevation rainforest of the Wet Tropics region. Named after Norwegian explorer Carol Sofus Lumholtz, the species is the smallest of all tree kangaroos, and is highly territorial: they live in groups of three to five, with one male and several female mates. Each maintains their own individual "home range" which they are protective of. The Wildlife Habitat is one of only two Wildlife parks in the world with the rare opportunity to see this species and how a successful breeding program is run within the colony.
The Wildlife Habitat has a bask of Freshwater crocodiles and the larger Estuarine crocodiles. Estuarine crocodiles can live in freshwater and saltwater environments and are found in estuaries, lakes, billabongs, and even in the sea. For a close encounter, you can have the opportunity to purchase a souvenir photo holding these captivating creatures.
