This is more of a conservation centre than a zoo but all the better for it as the talks by the guards were excellent and warranted the extra time spent in the park. We went for the platypus in particular and he didn't disappoint though...More

Hi, we spent the day from 10am to 4pm and went to all the park talks! You could go for less time as it’s not as big as other parks but we brought a picnic and chilled out in between the talks! Hop that help :-)

Fleays is a part of National Parks and Wildlife Qld. The admission is really good value at around $25 for adults, and offers of reduced prices for groups and families.
