What a lovely well kept Wildlife Park. The park was well kept and the animals happy & content. Loved the way they just roamed around. Plenty of eating areas and interaction with the animals.

The Ballarat Wildlife Park is a great place to take the family or overseas guests. The park is continuously growing but also keeps the feeling of personal awareness. My grandchildren loved being here.

Our Park is a more intimate Park where you can pat Kangaroos and get up close and personal to all of our non venomous animals. We certainly hope you come and visit. Best regards Julie-Anne Marketing Manager
