David Fleay Wildlife Park

David Fleay Wildlife Park Review

Located in the town of Burleigh Heads—7 km (4½ miles) south of Broadbeach—and named for an Australian wildlife naturalist, the park features a boardwalk trail through pristine wetlands and rain forests. Koalas, kangaroos, dingoes, platypuses, and crocodiles, grouped together in separate zones according to their natural habitat, are just some of the creatures you might see. A state-of-the-art nocturnal house displays threatened species and the elusive platypus. Daily presentations are free; the platypus feeding at 2:45 pm is a must see. There's also a café and a gift shop. Family passes offer a significant admission discount.
