    Very family friendly environment. Beautiful, interesting animals to observe and learn about. Helpful, friendly staff who make the time to share stories. David Fleay's story continues...

    Always good and book online before you go there, huge car park & enough space for your motor home or caravan. Walk beyond the Wildlife Park along the creek, an iconic Gold Coast walk, even through to Burleigh Heads. There will be a new cafe soon.

    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.

    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.

    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!
