Most delightful staff I have encountered within a wildlife park and I have travelled the whole of Australia and visited many a park so well done a huge pat on the back. As for the animals love that you can get down amoungst them and I have wonderful camera shots of them all.

Great . Informative and fun. Staff were very friendly and professional despite unruly children and parents who chose to ignore the rules and consideration of others. Still the whole experience at this venue was very enjoyable. I would certainly recommend it.

Went with my wife during the holidays. It’s a nice little spot close to our home, it was $15 each as we were students. The park itself was quite nice, good variety of animals it felt like a small zoo. The staff were a little grumpy and I didn’t feel like my questions were all that appreciated. We loved the tree Kangaroos. There is also a lovely mangrove walk behind the park I preferred.

David Fleay Wildlife Park is facinating. It isn't huge, but there is plenty to see and the animals loom well cared for and generally happy. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth seeing the bird show with some great demonstrations. Nice area and something you can comfortably do over a few hours (or longer if you want).
