About David Fleay Wildlife Park
David Fleay Wildlife Park offers something for everyone! The park’s focus is on Queensland native species, particularly those that are threatened or rare to see in the wild, along with Australia’s iconic animals such as koalas, kangaroos, emus and platypus.
Our daily show schedule is forever changing to ensure visitors hear more of our wildlife ambassador stories – ensure you ask for details when checking in at the Admissions Counter on arrival. Alternatively, explore the park on your own following the network of wide boardwalks that bring you close to our beautiful creatures – remember Fleays is the only place to see the shy bridled nailtail wallaby thought to be extinct for over 30 years!. Use our park map guide to navigate around the park.

You can help protect the park by observing these guidelines.
- Please leave all plants and animals undisturbed.
- Take your rubbish out of the park.
- Keep to constructed tracks—shortcutting causes erosion.
- Do not feed native animals—it may cause poor health and sometimes death.
- Please do not chase or scare the wildlife.
See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
