Biography/History

Alfred Percival Bullen (1896-1974) and his wife Lilian EtheI (1894-1965), began travelling around country shows with a pony and a few pairs of roller-skates. By 1922 the Bullens organized their own circus. Bullen's Circus gave its last performance on 25 May 1969. Their son, Stafford Bullen (1925-2001), was the person behind the establishment of Sydney's African Lion Safari. In the early 1960s, he became aware of the threat television posed, and he decided to diversify in order to survive. In 1968, he opened the African Lion Safari Park near Warragamba Dam. The Safari Park closed in 1991.
