Overview

Wildlife & zoos

From the vast wilderness of the Grampians National Park to the quiet towns and villages in the surrounding area, the Grampians region is a haven for native wildlife of all shapes and sizes. Hit the mountain trails or just cruise from town to town and see kangaroos, wallabies, emus, echidnas and myriad bird species at home in their natural habitat.

Encounter kangaroos and wallabies

Marvel at the sheer number of kangaroos and wallabies, whether wandering the main streets of Halls Gap and Pomonal, or in surrounding paddocks and bush land, unconcerned by passers-by.

Keep the camera at the ready for the sight of male emus shepherding youngsters on a foraging expedition, or echidnas seeking out an insect feast.

For something a little different, play a round at the Halls Gap Golf Club and share the fairways with kangaroos, emu, deer and native birds.

Bird life

Admire wedge-tailed eagles as they soar high, and see parrots, lorikeets and honeyeaters feeding on forest plants.

In the desert country, try and catch a glimpse of the shy desert mallee fowl or endangered red tailed black cockatoo. In the heathlands expect wrens, robins, whistlers and fantails as they flit from ground to bush.

At dawn and dusk, listen for the laugh of the kookaburra, or after dark for the calls of the powerful owl, boobook owl and even the shy tawny frogmouth. The evening is also a fantastic time for viewing possums and sugar gliders.

The whole tribe

Take the chance to get a good look at many of the local creatures at Halls Gap Zoo and chat to the keepers about the quirks of these curious native animals. Feed kangaroos from your hand, pat dingoes and see koalas, Tassie devils, wombats, crocodiles, snakes and dingoes up close.
