David Fleay Wildlife Park Tours


Hours: 9.00am to 4.00pm every day except Christmas Day and Anzac Day morning.

David Fleay Wildlife Park is Queensland's most natural wildlife park, featuring an amazing collection of Queensland's threatened animals. It is the only wildlife park on the Gold Coast where visitors can see Australia's elusive platypus and the Bridled nailtail wallaby thought to be extinct for over 30 years!

Nestled in right in the heart of the Gold Coast the enclosed fauna reserve offers 7.5 acres of parkland with a network of boardwalks inviting visitors to stroll around exploring the diverse array of habitats and unique wildlife within. While just outside you have the opportunity to walk along the Tallebudgera Creek Mangrove boardwalk that is also part of the larger conservation park, all part of Dr David Fleay's legacies.

The program of daily wildlife presentations is an ideal way to learn about Queensland's unique native mammals, birds and reptiles. Just some of the unique wildlife that can be seen at Fleays includes:

- the endangered southern cassowary from the rainforests of North Queensland
- the playful platypus
- freshwater and estuarine (saltwater) crocodiles in their natural surrounds
- the near threatened Lumholtz's tree- kangaroo
- yellow-bellied gliders and endangered mahogany gliders
- and Australia's iconic animals such as the koala, dingos and Emu

Explore the park on your own or join one of our daily Ranger guided walks to hear first hand the amazing history, features and skills of Queensland's unique native wildlife.
