Licences for zoos

If you keep animals that are not normally domesticated in a place which is open to the public for more than 7 days in a 12 month period, you will need a zoo licence.

How do I apply?

First you need to give notice of your intention to make an application for a zoo licence.

You can then apply online.

An initial zoo licence is valid for 4 years and a subsequent renewed licence is valid for 6 years. Inspections are carried out by a state vet throughout the duration of the licence.
