The aim of Territory Wildlife Park is to present the fauna of the
Northern Territory up close and personal, but in their natural habitat.
Thus, visitors pass through tree top aviaries, walk beside a natural
lagoon, or go beneath the surface of a walk-through aquarium to meet
the Top End’s wildlife. The aviaries has a 1km of walking path, a
recreation of a Kakadu waterhole is viewed from as raised walkway, and
the many woodland animals that only come out at night, such as mammals,
reptiles, birds amphibians and invertebrates, are displayed in a
nocturnal house. Entry fees apply.
