Ballarat Wildlife Park

03 53 335 933

Ballarat Wildlife Park is an award winning Park that is owned and operated by Greg Parker and his family.

Founded in February 1985 through a passion for conservation of wildlife and the environment. The Parker family have long realised the value of allowing people and animals to come together in a relaxing, friendly and educational environment.

The selection of animals is truly unique and features animals that can only be described as natural wonders of the world!

Children can experience close contact with koalas, wombats, kangaroos and even crocodiles. Ballarat Wildlife Park houses a rich collection of native Australian wildlife in 16 hectares of natural bushland.

In late 2013, a five metre long super crocodile 'Crunch' was introduced to a brand new million-dollar crocodile enclosure at the Ballarat Wildlife Park. Visitors can now see Crunch perform in a daily feeding show.

Guided tours run every day at 11am and animal shows running weekends, school holidays and public holidays from 1.30pm. Throughout the week they have 'Meet the keeper' running from 1.30pm.

On-site at Ballarat Wildlife Park there is a beautiful coffee shop and also a great souvenir shop. For further information on Ballarat Wildlife Park, contact the friendly staff.
