    It is a great place to take your kids to learn about wildlife animals and enjoy the rainforest. Staff was very friendly and the park is easy to go around. Not so big, not so small.

    Nice leafy boardwalk surrounded in native animals. All revenues go back into protecting the animals. Friendly staff and reasonable refreshments. Definitely worth a check. Always quiet!

    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

    An educational experience, if you take the time. Thank you to Bindy, from customer service, for showing me the animals I missed initially: cassowary, rare wallaby, turtle, emu, eel and dingo. Bring your camera - and a long lens if possible. Informative talks scheduled regularly. Well worth a visit - and try walking there from Burleigh central.

    Had an incredible experience at David Fleay Wildlife Park. All the staff were friendly and eager to share their knowledge about the parks different creatures. Did you know that crocodiles can l go 12 months without eating? Yeah, I didn’t either. The park had a good host of different species, like cassowaries, dingoes, emus, crocodiles, and flying kangaroos. I really like how the park seems to focus on conservation and rehabilitation of the animals. It’s definitely suitable for all ages and is worth visiting!
