At the Territory Wildlife Park you can see the Top End of Northern Australia in 4 hours rather than 4 days! The Park is a 45 minute drive south of Darwin city. It occupies 625 hectares of native bush adjacent to the Berry Springs Nature Park.

The Wildlife Park showcases animals and plants of the Top End in both natural settings and exhibits for ease of viewing, as well as the diversity of natural habitats of the Top End.

The Park is spread out around a 4km loop road with free shuttle trains and natural walking paths linking the attractions. The Main Station Cafe, Nocturnal House and Aquarium are airconditioned.

Its a great place for families but make sure your up for walking. And its also best to go in winter and not the summer months, if its not raining and hot. Daily shows and wildlife from around the local area. The bird show is especially good if you want to see them up close and in action. They also... More

The wildlife park is a must. You get on a train it takes you to the walking tracks to so many animals. They have a display that. Does thunder and lightning. It made us jump. You have to spend all day at the park. They have a croc named Graeme. He is big. Lots of different birds. And more. We... More

Paid $64 entry into what was just a HUGE jungle park with very little to see or do. The aquarium was nice. The nocturnal enclosure was nice. We saw some dingoes in an enclosure ... and we saw bush and swampland ... LOTS of it and that was it. If you want to see native bushland, a walk through any... More

Hi JoseDivolo, thanks for taking the time to tell others about your visit to the Territory Wildlife Park. While I respect that you feel $64 entry (either two adult tickets or an adult and two kids) to be poor value for money I can assure you that most of our visitors feel the opposite.

We arrived quite late in the day and were warned that we might not have time to see everything-which I thought was excellent customer service. In fact we had a fabulous time.

I took my little 23 month old baby girl here last Saturday (March 2017), in the hope that there would be lots of animals for her to see and maybe interact with.

Hi there CandC123, I'm sorry that your experience was not aligned with your expectation. Unfortunately the day that you visited was a particularly hot and humid day and this does impact on the wildlife that calls the Territory Wildlife Park home. This is why we have created specific exhibits that allow visitors to see the animals in all conditions. Sounds... More

This park is indeed large but there are two choices to get around - walking or taking the free "train" which you can hop-on hop-off at each of the themed areas.

We were disappointed in how few animals we actually saw at the park. We saw two dingoes and three or four wallabies. The staff told us that Darwin is too hot for roos and koalas and that the animals that were there were hiding in search of a cool spot. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable.
