    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.

    This is out third visit and loved it again. It's a park that is easy to walk around with prams or wheelchair, it's very shaded and the outdoor bird show is great. The main attraction for us is the platypus ! Tip is, if you don't catch a glimpse at first the park is small enough to slip back a couple of times and no doubt you'll see him if you're patient.

    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!
