Of the three wombat species found in Australia – we are lucky enough to have both the southern hairy-nosed wombat and the bare-nosed wombat.

Placental Mammals

Can you howl like a dingo? In 2019, the Park welcomed two new dingo puppies to the family called Yula and Dipa. Yula and Dipa got their names from the Yorta Yorta language group whose land the Fauna Park resides on. Make sure you visit our dingo precinct to learn all about this apex predator of Australia.

Monotreme Mammals

Echi the Echidna is without doubt one of our favourites at the Park. One of two unique monotreme mammals found in Australia, Echi can often be seen out exploring her enclosure on a sunny day. While she can be challenging to find, it is well worth the search when you see her.
