It is rare to visit a wildlife park and expect some interactivity there other than the only source of the same being the animals.

Ballarat Wildlife Park, Ballarat Reviews

  • Hands down my favorite experience in Australia to date. The park is smallish, which gives it a cozy atmosphere and allows you plenty of time to explore each exhibit. The animals all appear happy and well taken care of - honestly if I could be one of the kangaroos in another life, I wouldn’t hesitate. Plus, the staff were all lovely (not something I necessarily expect from bigger zoos). We paid extra for the wombat encounter and it was definitely worth the money. Plus, feeding and cuddling with the kangaroos was such a great time. Can’t recommend highly enough!

  • We arrived 1 hour before closing. 1 man, 3 girls, 1 baby. No concession, full price only, even though we had less than an hour to enjoy the place. Even though one of us was a pensioner and we were a family we couldn't get discount for the limited time left and we couldn't get family price either, ($95:00), because, forget the 21st century, in this place a family is one man one woman 2 kids. At an adult entry fee of $35:00 each, plus $19.50 for kids we were looking at a total entry fee of either $140:00, or $159.50 for less than an hour's mild amusement. Needless to say we weren't amused and left. It would have cost them nothing to take $95:00 of our money and let us in for 45 minutes. This place is very small and very small-minded.

  • Beautiful scenery, friendly kangaroos, would be a bit nicer if it only had Australian animals. This would make the wildlife park more enjoyable. Tasmanian devil's were hiding - a bit disappointing to not see them. Great setup though. The new penguin exhibit was awesome.

  • Fantastic. Have visited several times now and each time has given me something different. There are all the Australian animals you would like to see and also kangaroos roaming to feed. Took various groups of family there when they came from abroad all have said this place is a particular highlight. Recommend to everyone.

  • Love my experience to the park, especially the welcoming and friendly kangaroos. Was in luck to see the penguin swimming and flipping too. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be at Ballarat. Recommended!
