    Hidden gem. Take a relaxing stroll around the shaddy park. Even in school holidays it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The talks are plentiful and informative..The staff are happy to answer your children's most inane questions. Bring a picnic, relax and enjoy!

    Very nice zoo, great value ($60 for family of 4), ideal for family's with small kids as it's not huge but big enough to get around in a few hours + shows. Nocturnal enclosure a real highlight. Definitely worth a visit.

    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.

    The show about the David Fleay and the woldlife park that we saw when we arrived was incredible. Seeing the birds in their natural environment was fabulous. I loved seeing the water python up so close.

    Really disappointed ☹️ We weren’t expecting too much, but have to say our visit was dismal. There was only 1 koala & 1 dingo, of which was pacing and circling in one spot the entire day. There were only 2 emus that were also pacing up and down one spot on a temporary fence. We arrived to watch the water birds presentation 5 minutes early, only to be told it had already started and finished 3 minutes earlier than the time scheduled. The lady on reception when we arrived was not welcoming at all & couldn’t bother to smile. The only highlight was the nocturnal house. Would not recommend visiting and won’t be back.
