Wildlife Habitat CrocArena

The Queensland Government is backing the construction of a new experience that will enable guests to ‘Snorkel with the Salties’ at Wildlife Habitat's new CrocArena at Port Douglas.

The CrocArena development is expected to draw major national and international media attention resulting in a substantial increase in annual tourism numbers.

This project is a part of the $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure (GTI) Fund 2020/21, and is a key element of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.


  • Create around 20 jobs during construction

  • Projected to increase annual tourism numbers by 10,000

  • 10 ongoing jobs once operational
