There are lots of good zoos in Victoria, with Ballarat Wildlife Park being one of them. The Ballarat Wildlife Park has lots of things to keep the kids interested, including a snake show, feeding time with animals and a koala show.
My three boys loved the park, they thought it was way better than the Melbourne Zoo. The park has mainly wildlife animals such as wombats, koalas, snakes, echidnas, Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, cobras, crocodiles, frogs, eagles, geese and tortoises. My boys loved all the reptiles, they thought they were and loved watching the zoo workers feed them.
The wildlife park is open seven days a week from 9am till 5:30pm, very flexible hours considering there are people coming from all different suburbs around Melbourne.
It's a very big zoo, and I like how laid-back it is.There are lots of shows to entertain the whole family, especially the kids such as the snake, koala, wombat, crocodile, and Tasmanian devil show all throughout the day.
