The Today Show
Just before Easter we hosted the Today Show with Steve here for the weather crossovers. Very early start to set up (4.30am) and then the showers caused a few changes to our planned activities but still great exposure for the zoo and the region as a whole with highlighting the National Park, the Stawell Gift and Grampians Grape Escape Wine & Food Festival. A big thank you to Grampians Tourism and Tourism Victoria for organising this.
We had excellent visitation over Easter with many taking the opportunity to experience one of the encounters available – feeding the meerkats, going in with the dingoes or holding a snake, alligator or chameleon.
The fundraising has started thanks to the first of our sponsors, Barry Alexander (Surgeon) and Tony Crabtree (farmalinx – Partners in Agriculture).
