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 deer and kangaroo! Meet Hobbs, our mischievous capuchin monkey and Cybil the cheeky camel who loves to steal spades. Wander with Sammy, our friendly sambar deer, and Vicki the beautiful fallow deer, just some of the animals who will interact with you as you stroll around. 

Bring along family, friends and a have a picnic lunch or BBQ in our undercover facilities. For those who are more adventurous, bring your tent or swag to stay overnight and fall asleep to the wonderful night sounds of the lions and other animals!
