Get in touch with Wildlife

Maru’s Animal Park

At Maru we aim to give our visitors the opportunity to really interact with the animals, including koalas, kangaroos and wallabies, dingoes, emus, parrots, wombats, crocodile, stock animals and more. Join our park keepers at regular talks and presentations, including our feature Wildlife Show on weekends and holidays. View the koalas from the raised boardwalk or go inside their enclosure with the keepers and after see the Sheep Shearing Show.

Pirate Pete’s Mini-Golf

There’s so much more to Maru than just animals. Set sail for 18 holes of adventure as your putt your way around the Princess Caribbean Pirate Ship. Encounter life-size pirate figures, a great white shark and brave the gold-mine under the five meter thunderous waterfall.

This pirate wonderland is right next to the animal park and it provides for such a fun day out. For the family, the traveller, the Melbourne man searching for a day trip or maybe what could be the coolest first date ever.

All Day at Maru

Come and enjoy both our Animal Park and Mini-Golf course when you purchase an ‘All Day Pass’. Afterwards, you can enjoy a meal or snack in our Homestead Bistro that overlooks the animal park.

We are a winner of many local business awards including Bass Coast Business of the Year 2013 along with Hall of Fame Inductee for Bass Coast Business Awards Good Access is Good Business and Hall of Fame Inductee for Gippsland Business.

Pat a koala, hand feed an albino kangaroo, walk with the dingoes, talk to the parrots and get wrapped up in a python, it’s all made possible at Maru where you can really ‘get in touch with wildlife’.
