More than 160 different species are waiting to make your family's acquaintance at the exciting Halls Gap Zoo. Whilst many are native to Australia, you'll also find exotic animals like cheetah and giraffe at this engaging outdoor zoological park, where family memories are made.
Halls Gap Zoo is one of a hundred institutions across Australasia that form the Zoo Aquarium Association. Kids can feed a kangaroo or wallaby, hug a meerkat, hold a reptile and walk about with the dingoes. Picnic and barbecue facilities are available, and kids can hang about at the playground too.
Alternatively, why not go boating on Lake Bellfield or Lonsdale? You can while away blissful hours fishing for trout and redfin on the cerulean water, then grill up your catch as a family on the shore. In the summertime, there's nothing better than dunking yourself in the water, and children love to play about on the beaches.
High-octane entertainment is also on hand: have a go at jet skiing and water skiing in this stunning setting. Kids will be excited to learn sailing on the azure Lake Bolac, easily reached from your Halls Gap holiday accommodation. Meanwhile, Moora Moora Reservoir is a scenic spot for canoeing and birdwatching.
