Halls Gap Zoo is Victoria's largest regional zoo exhibiting over 160 native and exotic mammals, reptiles and birds from cheetah, giraffe, meerkats, monkeys, red pandas and bison to kangaroos, koalas, Tassie devils, wombats, crocodiles, snakes and dingoes.
Halls Gap Zoo is home to a number of endangered species captive breeding programs. Overall management of these programs is by a species coordinator through the Zoo Aquarium Association (ZAA) which is an association that links over 90 zoos and aquariums across the Australasian region, including Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
Visitors have the opportunity to have close encounters with a number of species while at Halls Gap Zoo. Special animal food can be purchased to hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and deer or as an optional extra experience meerkats climbing onto your lap, feed the giraffe or rhino, go in with the dingoes or perhaps holding a reptile would appeal.
The two and a half kilometre pathway around the zoo is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. Enjoy a picnic or barbecue lunch while the children amuse themselves in the playground.
Halls Gap Zoo have snack food, drinks and souvenirs available. For further information please contact them or view their website.
