    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.

    We loved it. Not too busy. Rangers knew their stuff. A great place to take the kids.

    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!
