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

Excellent small wildlife sanctuary. Refreshing change from ‘worlds’ on the Gold Coast- this is all about seeing and conserving the amazing natural world.

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.
