Melbourne's premium wildlife activation

Wild Action 'The Zoo Comes To You'® pioneered the concept of a wildlife kids party way back in 1994!
Owned and Operated by TV Zoologist, Chris Humfrey for over 26 years. 

We are not a petting zoo! In fact we are far from it.  Your party Guests will be introduced to an amazing selection of Australian widllife including reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals.

Wild Action has an enormous selection of Australian Native Wildlife. We have thousands of native wildlife living at ZooHQ, many of which are rare and endangered.

Our aim is to empower kids on the importance of protecting biodiversity, both in our very own back-yards and globally. In our show they'' learn about each animal's classification, amazing adaptations, habitats and ecological niche. 
We teach kids to step outside their comfort zones, to be more resilient and introduce them to the wonderment of the Natural World.
The Wild Action Team operates from our own 11 acre private zoo facility, situated in the foothills of Mt. Macedon's woodland forest of Victoria. Our animals are lovingly cared for by a Team of dedicated Zoo Keepers.

Whether your child is besotted by reptiles, or you have an 'animal-mad' child who wishes to be a Vet or a Zoo Keeper when they are older…..Wild Action has a selection of animals which will well and truly WOW everyone. That's our guarantee!

Why wildlife at a kids birthday party?

We at Wild Action think it's actually the best way to engage children, and teach them about wildlife and conservation in a fun, friendly environment.

Your kids won't realise that they are learning. Our shows are controlled, and ethical. Each animal is introduced individually. Our expert Team member will enthral your birthday kids with amazing facts, and allow for unprecedented interactivity with our wildlife.

Do our animals get stressed?

We are so glad that you asked! All of our wildlife is expertly hand-reared by TV Zoologist Chris Humfrey, and his Family at ZooHQ, Macedon.

Chris and his Team hand-pick animals which are suitable, charismatic and well adapted for interaction with the general public. Wild Action operates under a Commercial Displayers Wildlife License regulated by DELWP (Department of Environment Land Water and Planning). Thankfully there are strict laws and regulations in displaying wildlife in the State of Victoria.

Why book a Wild Action Show?

A Wild Action birthday party experience is fun, engaging and educational! No where else can your birthday child see such a diverse array of Australian Wildlife… the perfect way for animal mad kids to celebrate their life milestone!
Your interest and support helps us achieve our goals in breeding critically endangered species such as the mountain pygmy possum, and allows us to share our education programs with the public.

How much does a Wild Action party cost?

Package One 
Australian Animals Package 
Which animals come to visit?

Behemoth non-venomous python snakes, a crocodile species, 'eye-licking' leaf-tailed gecko, giant monitor lizard, shingleback skink, green tree frog, fresh-water turtle, endangered owl, joey kangaroo, brush tailed bettong, adorable possum,   + more.

$700 + GST
Package Two
Additional Koala + Australian Animal package 
In addition to the Australian Animal package, we also bring along an adorable koala!

A koala is an exclusive special guest, and a once in a 'life-time' opportunity to meet up close and personal.
Strictly regulated under Victorian wildlife laws, we are only allowed to display each individual animal for a set period of time per week. It takes a lot of work and a specialist keeper to ethically and safely manage a koala.

In the State of Victoria it is illegal to hold a koala. Only our licensed Team member may do so.
However, that doesn't mean that you can't snuggle, pat and get 'Selfies' with Australia's most iconic marsupials. 
$1000 + GST

Sunday Party prices ($200 surcharge to cover Industry award).

The welfare of our animals is of paramount importance to us. Wild Action reserves the right to cancel and forfeit our Service if the environment of our performance is deemed unfit and unsafe for our animal friends. Extreme heat days may affect our ability to provide a wildlife activation.
