    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.

    Very well done. Animals easy to see plus handler's doing great informative shows. I saw the biggest croc and so close a truly awsome beast.

    I was pretty disappointed with this park. Very few enclosures open and the ones that were open had little to no animals in them! There's more wildlife in the bush surrounding it. And it made me feel really bad for the animals there. We were there for less than an hour because there was nothing to see. Would be better to join forces with Currumbin and give the animals at least somewhat better of a life with others around it, and would give patrons more to see and learn about. Would not go back, would not recommend.

    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.

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.
