  • David Fleay Wildlife Park is a foundation. The terrain is not particularly large and manageable. You can wander undisturbed through the Kangaroo enclosure and. It is designed in such a being as close as possible to the animals. This is interesting also for schools and educational. The crocodile resort is easy to see from the jetties. Feeds are organized occasionally. You should allow 2 hours for your visit. Ticket prices, which you like to pay to receive amounted to of $22,-for adults and from $14 for seniors.

  • Great little wildlife park in the middle of everything. The wildlife shows were very informative and they kept it interesting for the kids. Cost was fair for the family pass. Amenities were clean and well maintained. Great for all ages and backgrounds.
  • It was so nice to see these animals (that I wasn't able to spot hiking in the nearby parks) in a space run by the national park, where you can trust that the care of the animals comes first. Great staff, too!
  • Cheaper than the other parks on the Gold Coast, but still an excellent variety of animals. Kids loved it!
  • Great wildlife park! It is amazing and has a wide range of animals. Good priced cafe too. I highly recommend it! It is also a good price.
  • Brilliant place. Interactive, interesting, well laid out. Excellent for children.
