At Halls Gap Zoo, feed meerkats and let them climb over you; hold snakes, alligators, and chameleons; and pet dingoes. The zoo contains over 160 species of native and exotic wildlife--including a giraffe, a red panda, lemurs, colorful macaws, wallabies, and kangaroos--for you to view. You can even spend a morning or an entire day assisting a zookeeper. The wheelchair-accessible path winds for 2 km (1.25 mi), and you can bring your lunch to enjoy in one of the picnic areas or cook it on one of the barbecues. Kiosks around the site sell food as well.

  • Largest regional zoo in victoria. A humble zoo where the animals are well loved and looked after. Reasonably priced, the zoo has a layout in a circuit with no back tracking, you can see every exhibit. The staff are helpful and enthusiastic. Great for kids! There are deer and peacocks that roam freely and you may feed the deer! Worth a visit to break up your holiday!
  • We were in the area and took our nephew for his 3rd birthday, they gave us some free food to feed certain animals, which the kids loved. We also got to see the cheetahs being feed again a huge hit. There was a lot of enclosures closed which made some stretches quite a walk in between seeing things, but still had an enjoyable experience.
  • Great independant zoo. Excellent range of animals big and small. Entry price is fair. There's a picnic and BBQ area for sitting in shade and relaxing. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Must visit with family.
  • A fun place to visit with the family. Kids loved getting close to the deer and roos, as well being able to feed them. Pretty well maintained grounds and staff appear to be genuinely interested and care about the animals.
  • Great day out although been there twice in last month and a few animals not available for viewing. Still, a fantastic place
