    Lovely intimate zoo. I'd never seen a Brolga up so close before. Very good keeper talks.

    A small wildlife park. Great for the little ones. Was quiet but enjoyed wandering around at our own pace. Good bird show. Got to see an eagle so that was good.

    Very quiet park, we were probably 10 visitors in the whole park the day I visited, good if you don't like crowd. I found myself bored quite quickly. Happy with the animals I saw but wouldn't go back. Props to the staff though, absolutely lovely and very informative.

    Great, knowledgeable staff. We loved the walk around the wildlife park. Wheelchair accessible and great gentle stroll. We were able to see the bird show and the crocodile feeding, as well as had a chance to talk to the keepers around the park as they were interacting with the animals. Learned for the first time that Saltwater crocodiles live everywhere and not just in salt water, and about the endangered species that were living in the park. The birds and some of the wallabies are free to wander in and out of the park and the nature reserve (including the mangrove walk) so it is definitely worth taking a walk along the walking trails in and around the park

Nestled in the heart of Burleigh Heads, David Fleay’s is a small wildlife park with a difference! Stroll through the tranquil surroundings to experience some of Queensland’s natural habitats—rainforest to bushland—and meet some of the State’s unique and threatened species—Fleay’s is the only wildlife park visitors can see the shy bridled nailtail wallaby, thought to be extinct for over 30 years! A key highlight is meeting and chatting with the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service Rangers who care for the park’s unique and beautiful wildlife. Another is the Fleays in Flight show, where the large birds of prey wow visitors with their spectacular wing spans and speed.

Location

Corner of West Burleigh Road and Loman Lane in West Burleigh on the Gold Coast—just 15mins from Gold Coast airport, 25mins from Surfers Paradise and 90km south of Brisbane.
