Wherever I travel i am always looking for wildlife parks or zoos to visit and on my latest trip to Australia I was told about the Ballarat Wildlife Park that was located about a hour from where I was staying in Bendigo. This is a private family operated wildlife park that has been run by Greg Parker for over 30 years. The park is home to numerous indigenous wildlife but also others from outside Australia. Although the bad weather, it was winter, meant that I had to visit the outdoor attractions between showers, I nevertheless had a fantastic day and the animal keepers were execellent. The park is home to Crunch a 5 metre-long saltwater crocodile and he is certainly a super croc who is over 60 years old. They also have alligators and fresh water crocodiles. The Koalas were an absolute treat to watch and quite active during my visit. The Kangeroos could be fed by hand and it was great to get up close to Tasmanian Devils and Wombats. The reptile house was home to numerous deadly piosonous snakes that are found in the outback and some from further afield. One is always thankful you are separated by a glass panel. This wildlife park is reccomended to anyone who is travelling in this part of Victoria.
