Kyabram Fauna Park Masterplan
Kyabram Fauna Park’s vision is to be northern Victoria’s premier wildlife attraction.  The Kyabram Fauna Park Masterplan, which was developed with funding from Regional Development Victoria, sets the park up for a positive future by guiding development of the Park over the next 20 years.  The Plan was developed in 2019/20 by Jon Coe Design in partnership with Campaspe Shire Council, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Park staff, Park committee of management and local community.

The Master Plan is a long-term vision for the Park and is based on contemporary zoo-keeping principles, creating a more enticing visitor experience and much improved surroundings for animals.  The Master Plan has been designed to enable development at the Park to be undertaken in stages and as funding becomes available.

Feedback from the community, including aspirations for the future of the Park, was invited during the development of the Master Plan in 2019.  More than 300 people completed surveys and three written submissions were received. The community feedback greatly assisted in shaping the final Plan.

Kyabram Fauna Park’s purpose is to provide meaningful and memorable visitor experiences that educate and inspire action to protect wildlife and its habitat.  The Master Plan acknowledges the Park’s strong conservation history, as well as future aspirations to continue educating visitors about conservation, wildlife and biodiversity.

This exciting Plan proposes new species and exhibits as well as upgrades to existing exhibits and redevelopment of the wetlands.

Native Australian species remain the Park’s focus, however there is flexibility to consider displaying exotic animals in the future if they are deemed to be of significant benefit to the Park and visitors.

The proposed capital works projects will all require further detailed planning.  This will include consultation where relevant.

This is a 20-year Master Plan, which will be implemented in stages as funding becomes available.  The Park’s General Manager and Committee of Management have prioritised the projects within the Masterplan and are seeking funding for these works.

The Kyabram Fauna Park Physical Master Plan was developed with funding from Regional Development Victoria.   Campaspe Shire Council appointed Jon Coe Design to develop the Kyabram Fauna Park Masterplan.  Jon Coe has more than fifty years’ experience and has worked on more than 160 planning and design projects for more than 82 zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, theme parks and national parks in thirteen countries.

Some items in the Masterplan have already been completed:
2019/2020 and on-going - acquiring new native species including: pair of dingo puppies, a pair of Southern cassowaries,  Mitchell’s hopping mice, frill-neck lizard, fat-tailed dunnarts, a brush-tail possum, albino Darwin carpet pythons, inland taipans (the world’s most venomous snake), tawny frogmouths, squirrel gliders, Mertons water monitor, giant python and a black-headed monitor.
 
2019 - Construction of new headwall at lake viewing area.
November 2019 - Establishing a koala browse plantation: Kyabram Urban Landcare Group planted 300 eucalyptus trees at the Ern Miles Reserve to guarantee future supply of gum leaves for our koalas.  Rochester Native Nursery germinated and grew the seedlings ready for planted and teamed up with Campaspe Shire Council to donate the hundreds of trees and tree guards.
