Kyabram Fauna Park




Located in the Goulburn Valley of northern Victoria, the Park covers some 55 hectares of open woodland, wetlands and lakes. Rehabilitation of degraded lands and re-vegetation programs for many areas of the Park have provided habitats that now attract over 140 species of native birds, animals and amphibians. Add 105 species of Australian animals, birds and reptiles, which form part of the Park’s permanent exhibits, and you have an outstanding and unique community project.

With almost a third of the Park’s 600 permanent specimens free ranging and the remaining specimens exhibited in spacious, modern enclosures, sited amongst garden beds and natural settings, the Park provides visitors with an exciting, memorable and entertaining experience.

The Park has the second largest collection of Australian Fauna in Victoria, including Koala, Alpine Dingoes, Owls, Snakes, Wombats, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Tasmanian Devils, Cockatoos, Parrots, Waterfowl, Cranes, Finches, Lizards and many more. There is a large Walk Thru Aviary; Australia’s first energy efficient Reptile House, Wetland Viewing Hides and a Wetland Observation Tower.

The Kyabram Historical Society has developed a substantial display within the Fauna Park, based around an 1867 early settler’s cottage. This cottage was rescued from demolition by the Historical Society and with the assistance of the community and the Fauna Park Committee, it was moved to the Park and restored. Now complete, including furnishings and artefacts (donated or on loan), the cottage shows the conditions and way of life of the settlers and their families.

Surrounding the cottage is a variety of farm implements polus a 30 metre long, open fronted shed built to house extensive range of antique farm machinery. The late Ralph Lee donated this machinery and shed. There is also a fully fitted Blacksmith’s shop. This entire display takes the visitor back to our early pioneering heritage.

There is a Liberty Swing at the John Pilley Reserve, Lake Road (adjacent to the park).
