Hunter Valley Wildlife Park Community Day

Join us on Sunday, June 23, for our annual Hunter Valley Wildlife Park Community Day in partnership with Cessnock City Council.

Hunter Valley Wildlife Park is proud to support our local community with $15 Entry Tickets, FREE Animal Encounters, and 100 FREE Entry Tickets for guests with mobility disabilities.

“Hunter Valley Wildlife Park Community Day is a wonderful opportunity for us all to enjoy quality time together and connect with the incredible animals that call the wildlife park home” said Tony Chiefari, Australian Wildlife Parks CEO.

Mayor Jay Suvaal will kick off the event at 8:45 a.m. on Sunday and has announced four Mayoral Experience giveaways for four lucky couples to enjoy on the day, to be drawn at random at 9am.

"The Hunter Valley Wildlife Park Community Day offers a wonderful chance for families and individuals from across Cessnock to not only enjoy a fun-filled day out but also to connect and revel in the marvels of our incredible wildlife.” said Clr Suvaal.

“In today's fast-paced world, fostering connections with fellow community members and embracing the joy of spending time with magnificent wildlife is vital for our collective well-being and sense of belonging.

This event provides a unique opportunity for us all to come together, share experiences, and appreciate the beauty of nature right here in our own backyard."
