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

Nice and chilled out. Just followed the shows around. Relaxed, clean and tidy place with interesting animals... Not crowded and noisy like some places.

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)

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.
