We had an absolutely fab time there. . Lovely to see the animals so well cared for. We need to look after the animals now more than ever. Going back there (from UK) again this year.

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!

So peaceful. A lovely gentle walk with gradual ups and downs. Enjoyed the small furry creatures in the nocturnal house, lost a kid there who was fascinated by the jumping mice and I loved the squirrel gliders. Good value for a small wildlife park. Not overly commercialised. Don't expect to feed the animals. A much more natural environment.

Just such a lovely place to go where u are not walking all day to see stuff. The animals are very healthy and just beautiful. The shows are fun and informative. Would go there now if it was open

After walking through Burleigh Heads National Park we were looking for a bit more. With the aid of Google we stumbled upon the David Fleay Wildlife Park. What a well run and tidy park. We'll signposted exhibits, passionate rangers and helpful staff. A good mix of Australian wildlife in natural habitat. Spent the whole afternoon there and thoroughly enjoyed all of it. Great place for individuals, couples and families. Highly recommended.
