Welcome to the Mansfield Zoo
Mansfield Zoo is one of North East Victoria’s hidden secrets, with a large collection of exotic and native animals on 30 acres of picturesque parkland featuring lovely views across the Delatite Valley to Mt Buller. Hand or spade feed many of the animals as you wander, including monkeys! Meet Hobbs, our mischevious capuchin monkey and Basil the chocolate camel, who loves to steal spades. Wander with Emily and Miss Greedy, our friendly fallow deer, and Joey the Grey Kangaroo, just some of the animals who will interact with you as you stroll around. Bring along family, friends and a picnic lunch and bbq in our undercover facilities. For those who are more adventurous, stay overnight in a swag and fall asleep to the wonderful night sounds of the lions and other animals!
We are open every day except Christmas Day, and give you a day pass so you can come and go on the day of your visit.
Our White Lions, Djuma and Matimba, are now settled in to their new home at the zoo
It is a privilege to have these wonderful animals in our care. Their unusual coloring is due to a “chinchilla gene”, which gives them the white-blonde coat and blue eyes. Our two boys are only young – 6 years old – and we look forward to them being here for many years to come. Hear more about them and see them being fed each day of the weekend and holidays.
“We Bought a Zoo” Movie: Promotion closed but the film is still a good watch
Our special offer to watch the film ‘We Bought a Zoo’ at Mansfield Armchair Cinema has finished, but the film is still a good watch. There are lots of parallels with the Mansfield Zoo story, especially the magnificent background sound of the lions roaring.
