Wild Action

Vendor sincce 2016

Wild Action was Established in 1994. The Company was created by zoologist Chris Humfrey to satiate his personal desire to educate people about the amazing biodiversity in Australia. Chris was particularly keen on creating interactive ’hands-on’ incursions which captivated and inspired children. Humfrey always had a wonderment for nature, and it always amazed him that others didn't always share his passion for the beauty and magic of the Natural World.

Twenty one years later, Wild Action Zoo is now a state of the art private zoological facility in the Macedon Ranges, and operates the only 'truly' mobile zoo in the State of Victoria. The Wild Action Zoo Team breed many rare and endangered species. 

Wild Action employs a Team 10 full-time staff members, and our award winning Company educates well over 250,000 school children a year....on all things Wild!

Ultimately, it is Wild Action's  goal to inspire people to develop an interest and empathy in all things ‘WILD’, by delivering responsible, sustainable and educational wildlife encounters.

Wild Action shows do make a difference!

17 August 2017 • Junior Zoo Keeper with TV Zoologist Chris Humfrey.

Such a fantastic day my 7 year old son Jack had with Chris and his team during his recent Junior Zoo Keeper session. Such a great way for animal lovers to interact and enjoy the animals in their own habitats in a safe and friendly environment. The smile on Jack's face when he exited the gates at the end of the day said it all and he hasn't stopped talking about it since. Such great memories made!! Highly recommend this awesome, interactive experience.

I enjoyed the experience of being around animals. I learnt the scientific names of lots of animals plus my best experience was getting the emu egg. Now I have the 2 biggest eggs in the world. I loved doing it as always, keep up the good work Chris!

My son Rhys spent last Friday as a Junior Zoo Keeper with Chris and his team and he absolutely loved it. He said he can't wait to go back again. There wasn't 1 highlight for him because he enjoyed everything across the whole day from crabs to crocodiles. He came home with a usb of lots of wonderful photos he shared with us all and told us about all of the animals. Will definately be going again soon. If there was a day for adults I'd go too. Big thankyou to Chris and his wonderful team 😀
