The 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.

We also give you the chance to interact with Koalas, Wombats, and a variety of reptiles ranging from Snakes to Lizards and even a Giant Tortoise.

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 Encounters’, which is a photo of you and an animal, professionally taken as your souvenir to take home.

Assistance Animal Access  

We strive to provide visitors with the opportunity to encounter the natural world and to become involved in conservation action. We welcome the promotion of equal opportunity and access for people with disabilities. 

In order to protect the health and wellbeing of the animals in our care, assistance animals are not permitted access. We also wish to ensure the safety of the assistance animals and all patrons. With free-roaming kangaroos, alpaca and emus as well as dingoes that are walked daily through the park, the Ballarat Wildlife Park is required to restrict the access of assistance animals (any animals not in our care) from entering the park.

A position statement from the Zoo Aquarium Association Australia is available on request.

Subject to availability, we can provide a safe, shaded area for the assistance animal, and a volunteer or guide to accompany the individuals, to assist them in enjoying the experience.
