Hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies, get up close and cuddle koalas, see penguins play, and view our diverse range of wombats, dingoes, reptiles, birds, echidnas and much more.

    Join in at the daily talks and displays where you can see and hear about some of their animals up close and have the chance to pat and interact with them.

    Parndana Soldier Settlement Museum

    Parndana Soldier Settlement Museum

    The Parndana Soldier Settlement Museum is a modern historical display telling the stories of the development of the soldier settlement scheme in the early 1950s.

    A short stop will give you a snapshot of the lives of the settler's. Tales of logging, chaining, dozing and lavvy lane will capture your imagination. In an era before 240 volt power, good roads and telephones, the innovation and humour shown by this generation is a delight.

    The hall was built by the Returned Services League and dedicated as a memorial to Soldier Settlement, the building now contains memorabilia, photographs and stories relating to the development of Parndana and surrounding districts. The museum tells of how the land was cleared and improved for farming. The stories tell of their experiences, hardships, fellowship and humour that saw them successfully reshape their lives and build a community to be proud of.
