We are active wildlife carers and spend many hours rehabilitating Australian fauna. The main group we look after are macropods (‘big foot’ in latin) which include kangaroos, wallabies, and pademelons. These animals commonly come to us as a result of vehicle strikes which kill the mother and leave an orphan joey behind.
While in our care, wildlife receives high-quality vet care, nutrition (bottle feeding every few hours), mental/physical stimulation, and nurturing (this short video shows a day in the life of a foster joey. We hope you enjoy it!).
Native animals belong in their natural environment and this is our goal with each individual. We have had fantastic success with the long-term survival and reproduction of our macropods once they are reintroduced to the wild.
Please take care when driving on our roads, especially during the early mornings or evenings (as this is when many of our native animals are most active). If you have a dog, please keep it on a leash when walking around bushland.
Reef Positive: Port Douglas & Daintree
We are committed to looking after our environment and as such have partnered with local not-for-profit Great Barrier Reef Legacy to support their innovative work both on the reef and the adjacent land.
A dollar from each guest’s booking is donated to GBR Legacy and aids in their mission to “be a global leader in marine expeditions, delivering science, education and public engagement to accelerate actions vital to the future survival of coral reefs” and by extension the environments that support and rely on them such as the Daintree Rainforest.
