    Perfect day out walking through acres of lush wetlands with all sorts of beautiful native Australian animals and information plarks infront of the animals lovely well maintained exhibits, plus if your there during the right hours they also give educational talks about a variety of different animals and the passion from every individual that works here shows with in all the educational talks let alone the presentation and willingness of keepers to talk and interact with every visitor that passes through. Highly recommended especially if you one or more children.

    So great to have Fleay's open again! Lovely morning to stroll about at a comfortable pace with 3yo. Lots of interesting animals to see, and we got to listen to the waterbirds talk today which was very interesting and we'll presented

    Just loved this place when we went in December 2019. Such a personal experience because there was hardly anyone there. We had an almost private turtle and info feeding session, emu feeding, a possum and owl show, and so much more. Go here rather than the other bigger centers as this will not disappoint. It is small and can be covered in a few hours so is ideal for a short trip or a family with little kids with a short attention or anyone that wants to avoid crowds. There is a little cafe with limited food options, the only GF item I could find was a chocolate cake slice.

    Great small wildlife park with well looked after animals. Talks are great and staff friendly and helpful. Food isn't great but plenty of benches for a picnic. Best to see the platypus with as few people there as you can manage. He doesn't do the 10.30 event!
