Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sadly this no longer looks anything like the advertised photos. Pool is closed and all animals have gone. The whole place feels run down and neglected. We were so disappointed we left without saying a single night and we’re charged for our full stay. Would definitely not recommend.

This was the beat place I've ever stayed in. The rooms are in the treetops. It's quiet, peaceful and lush grounds. It used to be a zoo, so the owners have great stories to tell. There's still a whole Avery of birds and a kangaroo that visits everytime u go into the grounds.
Might be only good for kids for 1 night away as there's not much to do at the location. But u can use it like a base, we did Port douglas one day, daintree sky walk and ferry, croc tour, mossman gorge, Atherton tablelands. Coming back to a pool every night was fab!
Breakfast is fabulous, hearty and the owners will help with everything!
U can only book thru booking.com
This is glamour accommodation, large Lush towels, high thread count sheets, fly screens, massive ensuite with rainforest shower.
No kitchen facilities, but just eat in Mossman, Pt Douglas, daintree pub only open some nights.
You can't beat this place!

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.

Before one critizes this place, take a minute to learn about the operation first. It's a 'mom & pop' kind of place, privately run sanctuary and they continueously take in animals and birds that other people either mistreat or abandon. So, when one sees birds with few feathers or they fly up to the cage wall to 'talk' to you, it's a bird that was unwanted and that this place has taken in instead of putting down. Please keep that in mind! And socialize with those birds as they are used to human contact. The owners have huge hearts, really care about their animals and they try their best to give them a nice life. Talk to the owners and you'll learn the back story of many of these animals including the eagles. Talk to 'Arnie' the friendly Cockatoo up front, he flies freely when the zoo closes, but comes back to his cage on his own volition due to being treated nice. We were also shown new rescue parrots that were just brought in that day, that didn't look too good. In a few weeks they will look good as new. It's easy to see if birds have a nice life or not, due to the way they pluck their feathers. Arnie (upfront,) had beautiful plummage and was very social and well mannered. The other birds looked great too, except for the newly rescued ones. The dingoes were obviously well fed. There's only one Cassowary as the 2 that was there before were aggressive. (Owner was put in the hospital by one of them.) The one that is left came running when the owner fed him a tomato. (Lol! But I got my portraits of one.) I think a couple of hours here will show you many of the Australian birds and animals- and it's a great little place to spend some time we as visitors can help this place survive with our patronage and our donations, actually saving animal lives.

Yes it's a bit run down in places, but don't let that put you off. Friendly owner, great variety of birds and it's a fun way to spend a couple of hours.

We all really enjoyed our visit and overnight stay at the Daintree Wild Zoo. Great to see some amazing animals including rescues who have been given a second chance at life. There should be more zoos devoting space to rescued wildlife. We particularly loved talking with Arnie - the front-of-house Corella! Highly recommend a visit to this special place.
