Published on : Saturday, November 5, 2016

watourism-logoTourism A conservation and recreation reserve on the Avon River near Lower Chittering has been chosen by the State Government as the site for an open range zoo.

The zoo will host African savannah animals and support Perth Zoo’s international wildlife conservation breeding programs, as well as offer exciting new tourism opportunities.

 

 

It is hoped the open range zoo, which will be about an hour’s drive north of Perth, will be attractive to interstate and international visitors and become a world-class attraction.

 

 

The conservation and recreation reserve comprises 700 hectares, of which 280 hectares is already cleared. The land is vested in the Department of Parks and Wildlife.

 

 

The site is close to Perth, the Swan and Avon valleys and will offer other recreational opportunities such as nature-based tourism, camping and bush walking.

 

 
A site investigation will now take place to consider infrastructure requirements such as road access, water and power needs before an initial concept plan is developed.
