Wild Action

Vendor since 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!

An AMAZING experience! 😁 Chris and his Wild Action team are AWESOME! These guys are top class!! 👍🏻 My children ABSOLUTELY loved their zoo experience day with Chris and his team. They ensured our children's safety at all times while giving them an educational and hands on experience with a variety of animals. They had so much fun!! 😁 This is the second time my 2 children have done this Junior Zoo Keeper for a day and they have come away with more learning / information and lots more hands on experience as well as additional AMAZING memories and photos! They'll definitely do it again in the future. We highly recommend Wild Action's Junior Zoo Keeper day for all children who love to discover and learn about animals while getting a hands on, plus up close and personal experience with the animals in a safely monitored environment. Over the years we have experienced and watched Wild Action at public events, at our home birthday party, on TV programs and at this Junior Zoo Keeper day and it is clear that Chris and his team are top of their class in all settings with children's learning and safety as top priority at all times! GO WILD ACTION!!! 👍🏻😁

Mia had the best day ever with Chris and his Wild Action ‘family’. From the minute he walked through the gate to greet everyone, he was so personable and welcoming each child by name. Mia tells me that only 2 kids in the group hadn’t done the experience before, so I think that speaks volumes of the experience. And Mia certainly wants to come back! Mia tells me it was an action packed day full of information and interactions with animals, further motivating her dream to become a zoologist. She honestly can’t pick one favourite moment, so there is too many to mention. She’s been madly saving up to buy herself a surfboard, but now this is all going towards setting up a home for a pet blue tongue lizard!

Hey Mia, it was lovely meeting you last weekend, and spending the day working with you and all of my animals. So glad that you are as passionate as me! Keep up the energy and focus on wildlife. Remember ...it's hard getting a bank loan working with animals......but it's a rewarding and exciting career. I look forward to seeing you again sometime. Sing-out if you need any advice on anything whatsoever. Happy to help like-minded people. Cheers Chris :)

Second time my children have had the opportunity to participate in this amazing wildlife experience. We didn't think it was possible but loved the experience even more this time . Chris and the team are intuitive to give children of different ages different ways to participate.
