Daintree Rainforest

Explore the Daintree Rainforest at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, home to loads of unique animals including Princess the Southern cassowary and Rockmelon the pademelon.



If you really want to get close to Australia's animals, lose yourself in WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo's replication of Queensland's beautiful Daintree Rainforest. This habitat is home to Princess the cassowary, our family of pademelons, Boyd's forest dragon, carpet python, broad-shelled river turtle and many more!

Rainforests are the most ecologically diverse places on the planet. There are several layers of vegetation, home to loads of unique, beautiful and sometimes bizarre plants and animals.

The canopy is around 20-40 metres off the ground, and stops most of the sunlight from reaching the understorey. Only about two percent of the light gets through all the layers to the rainforest floor.
