About the Wildlife Park Owner

I was lucky enough to grow up on my family’s wildlife park which was surrounded by native animals, and I believe that the best way to encourage people to love and respect our wildlife is not by looking at them through wire but, where possible, to really get up close and personal, to touch, to feel, to smell; to interact with animals in a way that most people have not had the chance to do.

Located at the premises of former ‘Cudgee wildlife park’ Warrnambool Wildlife Encounters is a new take on the old family favourite. Keeping it in the family – former business Cudgee wildlife Park was run by my parents, and when they shut there doors 12 years ago I was determined that one day I would run my own wildlife park, so 4 years ago with the help of my partner we got to work on building a wildlife park with a difference, we are determined to give our guests an experience that you just cant get at other wildlife parks and its all wrapped up in a very family friendly admission cost.

These animals are my family and I want to share with people just how amazing our wildlife is, how fragile our ecosystem is and how important it is that we strive to protect it.
