Dean and I have always looked after animals. We have lived in The Otways since 1998, and set up Fauna Australia from scratch (it was just cow paddocks). We both have tertiary qualifications Dean in Zoology and myself in Ecotourism. I am currently studying Criminal Psychology, and also work at The Visitor Information Centre for the Shire. We have 3 children: Jaryd 12, Sophie 10 & Chloe 8. They are very sociable and love showing people from around the world our friendly Aussie animals. We offer our guests an upclose personal experience where you can take your own photos (as many as you want) with such favourites as koalas (no extra charge). We want you to enjoy a great Australian experience.
