Did you know that you can experience an African adventure just 30 minutes from Melbourne? At Werribee Open Range Zoo, you’ll find an amazing array of animals living on 225 hectares of wide, open savannah.
On the Pula Reserve Walking Trail, you’ll come face-to-face with amazing gorillas, a pride of lions, see monkeys and cheetahs at play and feel the sand between your toes at the new Hippo Beach! Included in your admission price is a 40 minute safari tour where you will find rhinoceros, giraffes, zebras and antelopes grazing together on the picturesque savannah.
Animal lover shouldn’t miss the Wild Encounters experience where you can feed a giraffe, stroke a serval, see amazing animals on the savannah from an open vehicle. In the new Gorilla Behind the Scenes encounter you get up close and personal with three gorilla bachelors! You can even stay overnight in our luxury safari tents overlooking the savannah in the Slumber Safari activity. This stay includes amazing close-up animal encounters, drinks and dips at sunset, and a sumptuous African feast.
Werribee Open Range Zoo is part of Zoos Victoria, a world-leading zoo-based conservation organisation, dedicated to fighting wildlife extinction. Zoos Victoria also administers the Healesville Sanctuary and Melbourne Zoo. Each one provides a unique and immersive experience that attracts visitors from around the world.
