SCHOOL holidays are a great opportunity to get outdoors with the family and explore some of the great attractions available to us throughout the region.

Why not get up close and personal with nature and pay a visit to Kyabram Fauna Park these holidays? Home to more than 600 Australian animals including koalas, dingoes, kangaroos, wombats, wallabies, echidnas, emus, flying-foxes and quolls, there’s also a huge reptile house and bird-lovers paradise.

During the school holidays, Kyabram Fauna Park will be hosting free daily activities for kids, including feeding the parrots at 10:30am, feeding the kangaroos at 11:15am, meeting a koala at 11:30am and enjoying learning about reptiles at 1:30pm.

Further to all of these great holiday activities, the Kyabram Historical Society will open Hazelman Cottage and the historical precinct every day of the Victorian school holidays from 11am until 1pm.

Ticket to entry to the Kyabram Fauna Park is $20 for adults, $10 for children and children under age four can enter the park for free.

Campaspe Shire Council has recently renewed a three-year funding agreement with the Kyabram Fauna Park committee of management that will see more than $150,000 fund its operation throughout that period.
