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.

This is a small-ish wildlife/conservation park. The staff are very friendly and always happy to talk with you about their work and the (native) species in their care. A great morning/ afternoon out. It has a cafe too .

We found the park to be in a beautiful location, among lots of trees and an easy to navigate park. It was quite personal with good visual access to the wildlife and birds. A good place to go , lots of great experiences all day long , lots of interesting experiences going on . The kids will love the animals and being able to be close to a lot of them .

What a beautiful place! Such a great experience and excellent way to spend a few hours. Plenty of parking, easy access for peaks and wheelchairs, the shows are informative and entertaining. Staff are very friendly and very approachable, so all questions are easily answered. We bought a packed lunch and there are plenty of tables and benches all throughout the park to sit and picnic. We had a range of ages from 60 to 3 years old and everyone loved it! Highly recommend a visit.
