Australia - Northern Territory
TERRITORY WILDLIFE PARK

What's on this Page:

 

INTRODUCTION:

The Territory Wildlife Park is about 60km south of Darwin and is simply one of the best 'zoos' that I've ever been to. Is this the way that zoos should be? Personally, yes I think so.

FEES:

Entrance fees to the park apply. The park opens at 8.30am and is a delight to visit and walk around.

ATTRACTIONS/WALKS:

Butler's Bird Walk (named after Harry Butler) with great viewing panels of glass find the birds in aviaries that resemble their natural habitat. There is also a large walk-in aviary which allows the visitor to walk into the canopy to view the birds.

The walk thru aquarium is simply amazing and a wonder to behold. It is such a close-up experience with the Top Ends fish. The Top End habitats are shown in miniature here also. There is also a large crocodile to be seen in one of the viewing tanks.

The Nocturnal House is another amazing place in this park. I spent ages here watching the Brush-Tailed Phascogale and other Australian animals here. This is truly a great set up.

There are also enclosures for the introduced species of the Northern Territory and this is quite an introduction to them.

How do you get around? You can walk through the place and I found this a great way to experience the park. The walk goes for about 6km. There is also a free train that snakes its way around the park. This is a must for all visitors to the Northern Territory. Make sure you experience it!

PHOTOS:

The photos are all hosted at Flickr and can be viewed via the slideshow below. Alternatively, clicking on the centre of the slideshow will take you to the album at Flickr, which will of course allow you to view far better images.

The other thing to note is that the Territory Wildlife Park photos only make up a small component of the album.
