David Fleay Wildlife Park
A living legacy
In 1951, Australian naturalist, David Fleay, created a wildlife park where visitors could enjoy and learn about wildlife in as close to their natural environment as possible. Today, at the David Fleay Wildlife Park, nestled in the secluded heart of Burleigh Heads, you can enjoy daily ranger-guided wildlife shows and see Australia’s iconic wildlife such as koalas, crocodiles, kangaroos and the rare Lumholtz tree kangaroo, along with a range of Australian birds, including emus, cassowaries, wedge-tailed eagles and lorikeets. Play ‘spot the wildlife’ as you tick off elusive nocturnal animals such as the platypus, bilby, mahogany glider and Julia Creek dunnart.
