Tiger Sanctuary at Ballarat Wildlife Park

A Sumantran Tiger in Ballarat? Oh my!

Did you know that you can "meet" a beautiful Sumatran Tiger in Ballarat?

Maneki at Ballarat Wildlife Park


Maneki (pronounced Man-ek-ee) is housed at Ballarat Wildlife Park. The majestic female feline arrived in Regional Victoria from Queensland just before Christmas 2018.

You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April 2019 at Fitzroy Gardens.
She has now settled into Ballarat life, in her own ‘Tiger Sanctuary.’ A male Sumatran Tiger will arrive later to join her.

Maneki has been hand-raised at Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo. She loves to swim in her pool on warm days and especially enjoys eating venison, beef, and chicken.

The Ballarat Wildlife Park’s Tiger Sanctuary features swimming pools, climbing poles, shady areas, heated dens and state-of-the-art security to ensure the animals and the community are kept safe.



If you would like to see Maneki, you can. Ballarat Wildlife Park opened the access bridge to Tiger Sanctuary in the early part of 2019, offering visitors the chance to see her up close.

It is estimated there are less than 500 Sumatran Tigers left in the wild due to natural habitat destruction and poaching, so this is a very rare opportunity for locals and visitors alike to see a real life tiger.

See Maneki between 10am-2pm daily, although of course she may not always be active so you'll have to see if you can spot her when you arrive.

Where: Ballarat Wildlife Park, 250 Fussell St, Ballarat East
When: Ballarat Wildlife Park is open 9am - 5pm. Tiger Sanctuary open between 10am - 2pm daily.
