David Fleay Wildlife Park

Wildlife Reserve in Burleigh Heads

Opened by the naturalist who first succeeded in breeding platypuses and wedge-tailed eagles, this wildlife park has enclosures housing koalas, cassowaries, emus, crocs, wallabies, kangaroos, snakes and a very cute platypus. There are plenty of informative native wildlife shows throughout the day. Just outside the park, boardwalks traverse the mangroves fringing Tallebudgera Creek.
