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.

Unfortunate the weather wasn't good. No one can help that. People visiting the park were quite rude and pushed in to get on the train. At the areas where there were animal displays and interactive opportunities, there were way too many people. This meant no photo opportunities due to someone always being in the way. If you asked someone to... More

We visited the Territory Wildlife park on a cruise ship excursion from Darwin. We were impressed with the park. The layout is great, and we found it easy (in spite of the 35 degree heat!) to walk from one area to another and so on. There is a little shuttle train you can use if you prefer, but we enjoyed...

Great day out with the family, looking at the animals, walking around the park and generally listing to the presenters. Enjoyed all the presentations and the friendliness of the staff. Everyone is there to assist. Aquarium was great as was the raptor display. Bit disappointed that by the time we got to the café most of the meal options were... More

My partner and I arrived at 9.00 am which is the ideal time to get there because the first show is at 9.40 and that's feeding wallabies which was great fun they're used to humans and love a good scratch. It's a big park about 6km round walk if you walk but there is a shuttle service operating which is... More

We loved the excitement of being amongst the most exotic animals.. we felt nervous at times and exhilarated at others... our little kiddo loved the whole experience.. Definitely recommend Suggestion - if going with young children, carry a stroller... the trains are stroller friendly and the long walks can be too taxing for the tiny legs!

A great way to start the year. Arrived just in time for the bird flight display. From there we walked through the many different areas. The nocturnal house and aquarium were exceptional. So much to see. There is a train that drives around the park but I think walking you see and hear so much more.
