Cyclone Recovery Work
Caring for Country
The 25 acres of tropical bushlands of Billabong Sanctuary provide habitat for a wide range of native animals, birds and reptiles. Billabong Sanctuary suffered heavily from Cyclone Yasi with over 10 acres still closed for site rehabilitation. Start your day with an interactive wildlife experience including feeding of saltwater crocodiles, cassowaries and cuddling a wombat and learn about the impacts of the cyclone on the native fauna at the sanctuary. Be shown the effects of a cyclone through natural bushland area that is closed for rehabilitation and learn about the wildlife that was once part of this half of the park. Help this unique wildlife sanctuary and engage in site recovery activities such as repairing animal enclosures, landscaping, weed eradication or tree planting (1-2 hours). Be rewarded with a home cooked North Queensland BBQ on the edge of the Billabong.
