    Loved this place! Ranger Clifton was awesome. Lots of amazing animals in a decent sized area for them to live.

    The show about the David Fleay and the woldlife park that we saw when we arrived was incredible. Seeing the birds in their natural environment was fabulous. I loved seeing the water python up so close.

    Always good and book online before you go there, huge car park & enough space for your motor home or caravan. Walk beyond the Wildlife Park along the creek, an iconic Gold Coast walk, even through to Burleigh Heads. There will be a new cafe soon.

    Very nice small zoo. It is not very expensive and we had a very nice morning. The shows start at 10am. You will find places to seat and had lunch. Right now the cafeteria is closed.

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.
