The David Fleay Wildlife Park is unique in its approach of presenting diverse indigenous wildlife species in their natural habitat. Located in the suburb of Burleigh Heads, the park aims to raise awareness and to educate the community on protecting native and threatened animal species.

The Wildlife Park has an animal hospital that services more than 1500 orphaned, injured, and sick animals each year. Unobtrusive fences and viewing platforms are around the area to make sure that the animals thrive in their natural setting.

David Fleay Wildlife Park Admission, Gold Coast

Mangrove, open eucalyptus forest, wetland, and rain forest are the four habitats created for the animals in the park. They also have a nocturnal house featuring threatened species of animals, including the greater bilby, woma python, and the platypus.

Visitors can see the displays on their own, however, a guided admission tour is still the best way to see the park; with these admission tours usually run by experienced rangers, who are knowledgeable on the plant and animal life inhabiting the park.

The David Fleay Wildlife Park has visitor-friendly facilities, including assisted access and parking for disabled visitors. They also have an air-conditioned café, public toilet facilities, shaded and sheltered areas, and a visitor information center.
