The park has three main areas:
Wetland - Goose lagoon, Aquarium, Billabong
Monsoon Vine Forest - Walk-through aviary
Woodland - Flight deck, Nocturnal house

The highlights were the flight deck which showcases a number of birds of prey in flight (10am, 3pm) and the aquarium. Some of the birds are only flown at one of the shows, so if you are only going to see one, you might want to check which birds are flying. The show includes a demonstrations of the Osprey diving underwater for food.

There is a free shuttle train around the park or you can walk. The distances between some exhibits is fairly long so I would suggest using the shuttle train between these. You are given a map when you enter which includes distances (or you can view on their web page). There are also introducing hire bikes which will make the park much easier to get around.

Recommend combining with a visit to Berry Springs to make a day trip. There is a Bird of Prey demonstration at the Wildlife Park at 10am and 3pm. We went and watched the 10am show and then got a pass out and went swimming at Berry Springs and then returned to the Widlife Park for lunch and the 3pm show.

Address: Cox Peninsula Road, Berry Springs, NT
Directions: The park is 45 minutes south of Darwin in Berry Springs. Drive 50km south from Darwin on the Stuart Highway and turn right onto the Cox Peninsula Road. The park is 12 km along Cox Peninsula Road.
