Why travel thousands of kilometres, when a taste of African adventure is available just 30 minutes from Melbourne's city centre, at Werribee Open Range Zoo, you'll find an amazing array of animals living on 225 hectares of wide, open savanna.
On the Pula Reserve Walking Trail, come face-to-face with amazing gorillas, a pride of lions, see monkeys and cheetahs at play and discover a family of hippopotamus at the Kubu River Hippopotamus exhibit.
No trip to the Zoo is complete without heading out on safari across grassy plains where you'll find rhinoceros, giraffes, zebras and antelopes grazing together on the picturesque savanna.
All of the above, including the 40-minute safari tour, is included in the Zoo admission price. For those looking for even more adventure, then why not try one of the behind-the-scenes Wild Encounters. Touch a rhinoceros, feed a giraffe, stroke a serval and see amazing animals up close from the open vehicle.
Don't miss the latest attractions that are exhibiting at Werribee Open Range Zoo. They have one of the world's largest gorilla exhibits and the new-look luxury Slumber Safari overnight accommodation.
