Territory Wildlife Park

The Territory Wildlife Park is an excellent introduction to the wildlife of the Northern Territory. About 60 kilometres south of Darwin, the park covers 400 hectares (about 1000 acres) of natural bushland. There are 6 kilometres of walking trails through this multi-award winning park, and a free shuttle train link between major exhibits.

It has an aquarium, aviaries, a nocturnal house featuring unique Australian animals which can be seen only at night, and a Birds of Prey Display where trained hawks and eagles fly free. The beauty of the birds and the skill of their handlers is not to be missed. Allow at least four hours to enjoy the park where kangaroos roam free and there are hundreds of birds. Animals are kept in their natural habitats.

Walk among the animals through tree-top aviaries and around the natural lagoon before enjoying the daily presentation from the park's experienced keepers. These fun feature presentations are designed to introduce visitors to the animals who live at the park while interacting with the expert guides. There is also opportunity to meet some of the animals in a close encounter with a trained keeper.

The park is extensively signed with a system of walkways which is designed so that it's just a short walk between exhibits. With three main tracks, the park recommends visitors take a moment to consider the impressive biodiversity of the Park. The park also features a cafe with a considered menu of hot and cold meals and beverages, including a specially designed Kid's Menu. The park Gift Shop also sells unique park merchandise and souvenirs.

The Territory Wildlife Park has a natural lagoon teeming with water birds and a Monsoon Forest Walk. Just 45 minutes drive from Darwin on the Cox Peninsula Road a few minutes off the Stuart Highway, the park is open daily from 9.00am to 5.00pm. Entry closes at 4pm, but two hours is simply not enough.
