It is rare to visit a wildlife park and expect some interactivity there other than the only source of the same being the animals. The Ballarat Wildlife Park lets you do so thus making it one of the best things to do in Ballarat. It was opened in the year 19887 by Greg Parker and span across an area of 37 acres of absolutely natural bushland.

Ballarat Wildlife Park, Ballarat Reviews

  • We had a wonderful few hours at Ballarat wildlife park. We hadn’t visited as a family in a very long time and my boys aged 4, 7 and 10 all loved seeing a variety of animals. Highlights were feeding and patting kangaroos, the koalas, penguins and ‘crunch’ the crocodile. Food prices were excellent from what I could see advertised. Park clean, animals very well cared for and staff were fantastic. Definitely worth a visit!

  • We loved this small park where you can hand feed the kangaroos and alpacas. Perfect for smaller kids. Lots to see but you don't have to walk for miles. Our pay extra to have an intimate experience with snakes, dingos or koala which is well worth the extra.

  • Great little place with full on close encounter with the Australian wildlife. You can actually feed the roos, alpaca and emu while you having your lovely fish and chips or hot dog and milkshake in the outdoor seating. The penguins are fun and energetic too. Don't forget to check out the stuffed toys they are selling at the shop. Some of them are designed and made in AUS which it is getting rarer.

  • Great little park, I've done a few throughout the years with my friends or family visiting from overseas and this one is quite small but not too busy so we could actually see the animals quite well. The staff seemed to know the animals personality and all animals looked healthy and happy. 😄 Lots of kangaroos and koalas. Tasmanian devil feeding was impressive. The penguins were very cute and their population is growing which is great news.

  • Great that they are working towards continued improvement. Wasn't worth the money but slowly getting there. Many of the staff are great value and make the visit all the more worthwhile.
