He has also been ordered not to contact any of the three co-accused, who are all related, or any police witnesses.
The Crown had alleged Wild fled Victoria after the girl was assaulted but the court heard the return flights were booked weeks ago.
“It now seems he left Victoria unaware that he was a suspect in a major investigation,” Mr Reardon said.
His half-brother and co-accused Rowan Wild, 27, was granted bail on Thursday.
Kevin Andrew Wild, 28, and his 29-year-old brother Allan Mark Wild have been remanded in custody after being charged with one count each of rape and abduction.
The four men has been out drinking early on November 1 when they allegedly came across the teenage girl, who was sitting in a park with her 16-year-old male friend.
They are accused of grabbing the young girl and taking her away from the park to a nearby address where she was raped by two of the men.
She was then attacked by multiple offenders in a garage at another property before being dropped back to the park.
She ran to a nearby house to ask for help.
All four men are due to reappear in court on February 19.
