David Fleay Wildlife Park is a heritage-listed wildlife park at Fleays Wildlife Park Conservation Park, Tallebudgera Creek Road, Tallebudgera, Queensland, Australia. It was built from 1952 to 1983. It is also known as Fleays Wildlife Park. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 23 February 2001.
Established by Australian naturalist David Fleay in 1952, the Park today is home to many native animals, which are displayed in surroundings similar to their natural habitats.

Awesome wildlife park, not as much as some of the other parks nearby, but a good set of extra animals that were not in the other parks, I would most likely go back again, good for children under 12. Or anyone who has an interest in wildlife, and seeing them close up, The staff were very helpful and welcoming

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!

Spent a good morning seeing the wildlife at Fleays. Just missed out on the flight demo due to a tired little man wanting his bed. We will be back.

It's a wildlife park founded by the naturalist David Fleay, and ceded to the Queensland Government. You can see Australian native wildlife, (including some species on the endangered list, in breeding programmes.) They hold wildlife shows daily. There's a cafe with a personal touch, and they will soon open a larger reception venue.

Simple and small exhibits that can be easily explored in a day. Great variety of animals on display.

Nice Park, but a bit empty, not much to see unfortunately. The wildlife tours/talks are interesting however

Not the best wildlife park I have been to but still pretty good. My favourite thing was the cassowary feeding. The lady at the cafe was nice and funny. The area around the wildlife park is also really pretty.

Not too big not too small. Have a difference educational session throughout the day. The bird show was quite exciting!

Great wildlife park, friendly staff, and a good cafe. A great day out to spend strolling around looking at native animals. Wheelchair friendly, great for kids and adults. Highly recommend for an awesome day out. They also have crocodile feeding shows (not in winter) and a bird flight show, plus a few other shows throughout the day.

Nice small cozy little place for children to see and touch a few animals. The park has many different animals to visit. My favourite was the eagle having a stroll with a worker. Such amazing creatures. There's a platypus that never comes out to say hello. There's a nice little caged area you can go into be close with a few kangaroos and emus. Beware the emus sometimes peck. There are other animals such as dingoes, Cassowary, snakes and many more. The crocodile is massive and mean looking. I'm sure he's nice as long as you keep your distance. The staff here do such a lovely job caring for the animals.
