Territory Wildlife Park/ Art Trail
May 2021 • Family
Wildlife Park is a really worthwhile day out.
Well planned and maintained walking tracks through various habitats and exhibits. The ‘hop on/ off train’ is fun and readily accessible.
The park is also richly enhanced with many quirky and thought provoking art works.
Staff are all cheerful, welcoming and informative and do a creditable job in creating very natural and suitable homes for all their very well cared for wildlife.
We especially enjoyed the Birds of prey display, Nocturnal House and the amazing aquarium.
Thank you and congratulations

Special place to visit. Highly recommend.
May 2021 • Friends
Would like to start by thanking staff who assisted us today, Brianna who booked our encounters for us.
On the glove with a Barking Owl, with Luke and Gimbly.
To Graham to took us around to the Dingoes and water buffalo.
Breonie at the nocturnal house who took our encounter with the sugar gliders.
Justine who was our guide to our encounter with the river rays.
Claire and Kelly who served us on the way out.
You're all spectacular people who know their animals, great informative sessions and for anyone just wanting to visit something unique as the encounter book in advance, as there is limited spot for the health of the wildlife in their care.

Fantastic day out!
May 2021 • Family
We were looking for a family friendly activity to do with our two children (aged 4 years and 18 months) on our last day in Darwin and decided to pay the Territory Wildlife Park a visit. It was the best decision we made during our holiday. We had a fantastic day! The park is fantastically laid out in a beautiful setting and everything is accessible by the shuttle which runs every half hour and does loops of the park. Highlights for us were the Flight Deck bird show and the Whipray feeding. But it's difficult to choose just a few highlights as we thought everything was excellent. Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we were the last ones to leave the park, half hour before closing! It was a great day out and worth every cent. The only reason I've given 4 stars and not 5 is because the cafe is quite limited in food options. We enjoyed what we had (dino nuggets, chicken tenders and wedges) but that was the extent of the hot food and there were only a few sandwich options.

We would return again and again and would recommend to everyone visiting the area.

Great wildlife park - amazing dingo interactive experience was a great highlight !!
Apr 2021
Great to see the NT wildlife up close. Loved the keeper talks which were very informative, seeing the unique animals, the nocturnal house was the best we have ever seen.
Highlight of the day was an interactive experience with Delta the 9 month old Dingo, thanks very much to Will (the keeper) and Claire (Reception) for offering this to us. Will was great in teaching us about dingos and supervising our experience.
All the staff were terrific - highly recommend - thank you.

Hi 108cassandras, thank you so much for this lovely 5-star review! We are all so pleased that you had a great day and took the time to tell other travellers about it. It is great that you took advantage of the Wild Encounter of the Whipray feeding. Visitors can book the Wild Encounters at Admissions but arrive early as once they sell out they are full. Glad you enjoyed the flight deck too, it is a crowd fav! Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you again sometime, thanks Simon.

28th Birthday Day trip
Jan 2021 • Couples
Was such a great place to visit, staff are really friendly and the place is huge! I liked the fact there was a train to take you to all the different stops so you don't have to walk all of it if you don't want to.

I can't wait to go back. It's a different experience each season (wet and dry season) I was told. I can't wait to visit again in the Dry ☺️

Hi pilotkaitlyn and Happy Birthday! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely 5-star review and for telling other travellers about your visit. We are pleased you enjoyed the hop-on hop-off train that is designed to help visitors move around the huge Park, still we encourage people to wear their walking shoes as there is over 6km of walking tracks! The Park certainly does change with the seasons, and we look forward to seeing you again as the year progresses. Thanks for your on-going patronage and see you again soon, thanks Simon.

Our experience at the Wildlife Park was truly unique. On arrival the staff were were very welcoming and accommodating. This was consistent throughout the experience. They were well trained and extremely affable.
Our experience with "Flight Deck" was the apex of our experience with Tristan, the presenter, accomplishing a truly remarkable feat with the aerial fauna.
We would return to this venue especially with friends to share this outstaounding experience with them. Thank you team!

A wonderful place to visit!
Nov 2020
My husband and I recently moved to Darwin and have absolutely loved being able to visit this park on a regular basis. The staff are incredibly welcoming, knowledgeable and they always strive to ensure we enjoy and make the most of our visits. Furthermore, the park is beautifully laid out and the animals are really well cared for. I recently took some friends visiting from interstate who were concerned about the hot weather on the day. The staff helped us plan our visit to avoid the heat as much as possible and kept checking in throughout the day, ensuring we caught the train as much as possible. Lucky for us, it was a quiet day at the park and we ended feeling like we were on our own private tour! Thank you!!

Every time we go, we have a new great experience. So much to see, and rangers are very engaging, friendly, and really care for the animals. This place is a treasure for the Top End.
