Where are we going today?

The David Fleay Wildlife Park is home to a number of native species in naturalistic habitats with many threatened and endangered varieties split into four zones: wetland, rainforest, mangrove and open eucalypt forest. It is an attraction suited to all ages.

The nocturnal house offers an insight into the night time lives of animals, with extensive platypuses display.

Their focus here is on protection and conservation so don't expect to cuddle any koalas and whatnot here, visitor impact on the animals is minimised wherever possible.

There are plenty of fun educational animal presentations throughout the day and kids also have the opportunity to play Keeper For A Day.

    I love that it's just about the animals not trying to get you buy junk.

    My advice is to get there early to be sure to get the fur,feathers and scale presentation. stick around to take the rest of the park in and the other presentations.

    As amateur photographers and animal lovers we found David Fleays to be a perfect place to both engage with the wild life and for-fill our passion for wild life photography, There are so little places anywhere left near the Gold Coast to enjoy wild life photography & view our natives in a natural environment without having to travel for hours and at a reasonable price. It was nice to see how much the staff really cared for not only the animals but the park itself and found them all to be very informative and helpful, We also had lunch at the cafe...Read More
