Halls Gap Zoo News – November 2009

New Animals


To see one of Australia’s largest lizards with the most striking markings, the Perentie, wander slightly to your right as you leave the entrance building. Ours is a young one, but will eventually grow to approximately 2 metres in total length.


At the Nocturnal House entrance you can see one of our Veiled Chameleons with his remarkable colouring of greens and yellows.

Nocturnal House

Inside the Nocturnal House we have moved the Common Brushtail Possum and her baby into one of the larger enclosures, moved the Feathertail Gliders into one of the smaller enclosures with the Mitchell’s Hopping-mice and moved out one of the snakes to accommodate a Brushtail Rabbit-rat.

Canada Geese

Some Canada Geese are now in residence with the Barbary Sheep and will follow you along the path, thankfully on the other side of the fence!


Last, but by no means least, we have the ever popular koalas back on display thanks to Jirrahlinga Koala & Wildlife Sanctuary, Barwon Heads.

Art Gallery

The art gallery is expanding with new pieces arriving from far and near. If you are interested in nature-based art, call in to check out the current collection.


This month we would like to thank Narelle and team at PETstock Stawell for their continued support.
