David Fleay Wildlife Park

On the last day of our holiday at the Gold Coast, we decided to take the kids to David Fleay Wildlife Park at Burleigh Heads. It was wonderful, I highly recommend it!

 
 
Mangroves

Aboriginal artwork

Freshwater crocodile

Brushturkey - but we call them scrub turkeys or bush turkeys


Lace monitor (goanna)

Brush-tailed rock wallaby



Eastern Water Dragon


Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo
 
Another wallaby

Purple swamphen and its baby


Another wallaby!

Can't remember what this little guy is, but it was so cute 'hiding' behind the leaf.

Cassowary

Brolga


Saltwater crocodile


Plumed whistling duck

Another....you know!

Kangaroo



Bearded dragon

Ring-tailed possum

There were heaps of them, ok?

    1. I remember going about 30 years ago on a primary school camp!! I was surprised it was still there. Nothing like I remembered it.
