Wondering how to entertain the family for a day out? Look no further than the Werribee Open Range Zoo, located just 25 minutes away from Elements and the perfect activity for everyone to enjoy!
The 200-hectare zoo boasts some of Australia’s most iconic native animals and rare species from around the world. Open year round, the zoo also offers free admission during school holidays for those aged 15 years and under.
Delivering a unique and immersive experience, Werribee Open Range Zoo transports you straight to the wild with its safari bus tours, allowing visitors an up-close-and-personal view of its various animals that roam free throughout its grounds.
Be sure to walk through the lifelike replica of the Botswana bush to the lion feeding area where only a glass wall separates viewers from the large mammals, allowing for a memorable experience. ‘Meet the Keeper’ presentations are held daily, a perfect chance for visitors to hear experts discuss the care and conservation for the animals with an up close and personal demonstration.
Several cafés and dining options are located throughout the zoo, so guests can enjoy a delicious meal or lunch before heading home. The Meerkat Bistro offers a premium view of the African animals’ exhibit and the family friendly menu uses local produce whenever possible. Stop for a cooling refreshment at Hippo Beach Café. Children can swim as the hippos splash away in their own enclosure.
Werribee Open Range Zoo is located on K Rd, Werribee South.
