David Fleay Wildlife Park reviews
Excellent spot in Burleigh, nice to see animals in their own enclosures that mimic their natural habitat. The mangrove walk was excellent with a lot of information about the local aboriginal tribe... more »
So many animals and birds free to come and go. I would totally come back, recommend and help! Please donate when you visit! That way you help the animals and staff. I loved it!! more »
Went with my wife during the holidays. It’s a nice little spot close to our home, it was $15 each as we were students. The park itself was quite nice, good variety of animals it felt like a small zoo. The staff were a little grumpy and I didn’t feel like my questions were all that appreciated. We loved the tree Kangaroos. There is also a lovely mangrove walk behind the park I preferred.
Very nice Wildlife park! Nice and quiet during the day. Good coffee and tea aswell
