Blown away by this park. Went there for the platypus and was pleasantly surprised. The bird shows (night creatures and day ones) were fantastic as was the knowledge and kindness of the staff. The large walking area shared with many species of wetland birds, emu,...More

If you set aside a decent amount of time for your visit and then attend the presentations at the allocated times you get to meet iconic Aussie animals in their natural habitats. There are of course echoes of the past at Fleay’s, but the conservation...More

The park has well constructed boardwalks. Staff were very enthusiastic. However, it was disappointing to see so few animals for the cost of the entrance fee. Sightings amounted to a couple of emus, one dingo and some wallabies. I didn't have the heart to express...More

I can't remember the price but it wasn't unreasonable. The park is fairly compact so shouldn't provide difficulties for anyone unless particularly disabled. (Not much more than half a mile's walking in total)

You can walk through the emu and kangaroo enclosure - we didn’t touch any of the animals but I don’t know if you could have the option to.

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 :-)
