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.

Wow. This place is amazing. It was hot but the trails were quite shady and aquarium was even air conditioned. We walked and caught the train. Saw so much wildlife. Sometimes you need to stop and look but it's there. Well done NT.

When we moved to Darwin, people would say we should visit and eventually we got round to going. Upon arriving, entered a cafe, little gift shop, play parks for kids outside (all shaded which is good) clean, so far so good. It was very quiet...More

It was about $35 per person ... we drove out there, paid the money and found ourselves in a huge reserve with a few sparsely placed displays ... nice aquarium ... and that was it. There was simply no WOW factor at all. It actually...More

I am crazy about this place. It's a beautifully conceived space with large, thoughtful exhibits set in an environment that suits NT wildlife, ie. loads of room and natural settings. So much love has gone into the exhibits: the nocturnal house, bird show, avaries &...More

Great day out! Loads of walks, lots to see! We were greeted by a lovely girl at the desk who pointed us towards the ranger/guide, all of whom were informative and friendly. Only downside was on exiting the park the friendly girl and the desk...More

A great park that was much bigger then I was expecting, many of the animals are in their natural habitat. There was a large variety of wildlife, birds and fish. Took us about 4 hours to do the park, definitely worth getting on the train...More
