Halls Gap Zoo is Victoria's largest regional zoo exhibiting over 160 native and exotic mammals, reptiles and birds from cheetah, giraffe, meerkats, monkeys, red pandas and bison to kangaroos, koalas, Tassie devils, wombats, crocodiles, snakes and dingoes.

Halls Gap Zoo is home to a number of endangered species captive breeding programs. Overall management of these programs is by a species coordinator through the Zoo Aquarium Association (ZAA) which is an association that links over 90 zoos and aquariums across the Australasian region, including Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Some of these managed species at Halls Gap Zoo include Tasmanian Devil, Bilby, Brush-tailed Bettong, Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby, Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby, Tammar Wallaby (Mainland subspecies), Bush Stone-curlew, Southern Cassowary, Przewalski's Horse, Red Panda, Northern, Eastern and Spot-tailed Quolls.

Visitors have the opportunity to have close encounters with a number of species while at Halls Gap Zoo. Special animal food can be purchased to hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and deer or as an optional extra experience meerkats climbing onto your lap, go in with the dingoes or perhaps holding a snake, alligator or chameleon would appeal.

Examine animals of the past in the extensive display of over sixty replica fossils from ammonites to a tyrannosaur skull in the Fossil Cave.

The two and a half kilometre pathway around the zoo is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. Enjoy a picnic or barbecue lunch while the children amuse themselves in the playground. The undercover areas are suitable for birthday parties, family gatherings or Christmas events.

Halls Gap Zoo have snack food, drinks and souvenirs available. For further information please contact them or view their website.
