Welcome to the Ballarat Wildlife Park!

The Ballarat Wildlife Park is a privately owned business run by The Parker family and their team.

Here at the Park we offer a nice comfortable walk around our facilities, with the chance to get up close and personal to some of Australia’s most famous native animals.

With over 100 Kangaroos roaming free, around the Park, we give you the opportunity to experience hand feeding these amazing animals.

You can enjoy lunch in our fully licensed cafe or bring along a picnic to have on our outdoor table and chairs, surrounded by the Kangaroos.

And while at the Park, why not ask our friendly staff about our ‘Animal Experiences’, which is a photo of you and an animal, professionally taken as your souvenir to take home.

Patrick the Wombat

Patrick the Wombat was the oldest Bare Nosed Wombat known in captivity. Patrick was listed No.3 by CNN Travel as a great city mascot in the World!

“Our goal is to provide a quality interactive experience between people and animals for the promotion of respect, empathy, and understanding. We contribute to the survival of the environments we ultimately share with them.”

Eight Wombats currently call the Ballarat Wildlife Park home.

 

If you would like to assist us in caring for our Wombats or aid in the upgrade of their habitats you can help by joining our Sponsorship Program.
