Mansfield Zoo History
Mansfield Zoo commenced in early 2000 as a wildlife
park with deer and Australian native animals. Over time the
collection of animals grew and the Zoo now boasts over 100 native
and exotic animals. Most of our animals can be hand-fed by
visitors, which is a rare and very rewarding treat for animal lovers
of all ages. We now also have accommodation for the intrepid, with 'Swagovers'
in the Zoo
Mansfield Zoo Team
The Zoo is owned and operated by Bronwen Wilson and her 11 year
old son, Jordan, who embarked on their animal-lover's journey to
Mansfield in December 2005. Day to day activities at the Zoo are also
carried out by our many helpers, from work experience students at
local schools, Universities, TAFE's, and Timbertop, to Willing Workers on Organic Farms (Wwoofers)
from all around the world.
