At Ballarat Wildlife Park, roam 15 hectares (37 acres) of natural bushland and hand-feed free-roaming kangaroos. Pet koalas and wombats and touch snakes, lizards, and a giant tortoise. Over 400 animal species call the park home, many of which you can learn about through guided tours and keeper-led shows. The entry fee includes a quick guided tour and the afternoon's interactive animal shows. You can enjoy additional animal experiences, such as having your photo taken with a koala, for an extra fee. If you visit in cooler weather, warm up by the cafe's fire. To visit Ballarat Wildlife Park on your trip to Ballarat, use our Ballarat trip builder site .
